The local American Youth Soccer Organization fall season for the 19U and 15U Divisions came to a close this past Saturday, Oct. 30, 2021 with the championship games. Many thanks go out to all the coaches, team parents, referees and board members who spent countless hours supporting this soccer program for over 275 players ages 12 to 18 for the past five months.

A HUGE thank you to Eastern Arizona College for hosting the championship games at their Mickelson Stadium. We are so appreciative of their commitment to promoting soccer here in the Gila Valley and look forward to additional collaborative projects with them and AYSO.

I’d also like to mention the season is still going for 632 players ages 11 to 4. They have games for the next three Saturdays concluding on Nov. 20, 2021. These games are held at the Graham County Fairgrounds fields starting at 7 am.

— Donna Harrison, AYSO Region 216 Commissioner
