The Belmont High School Boys and Girls Varsity soccer teams will host the 6th annual Soccer Night in Belmont on Saturday, October 2nd, vs Winchester High School. Joined at the event by hundreds of younger players from Belmont 2nd Soccer, Winchester Soccer Club (WSC), and the Belmont Soccer Association (BSA), their coaches, and other members of the Belmont and Winchester soccer communities.
Soccer Night in Belmont will feature a league-rival doubleheader under the lights at Harris Field: a Boys game vs. Winchester - 4:30 pm procession with 5pm kickoff, followed by a Girls game vs. Winchester - 6:30 pm procession with a 7:00 pm kickoff. 2nd Soccer, WSC, and BSA players will participate by parading out with players as mascots, during the pre-game ceremonies, acting as ball-boys and ball-girls, and competing in mini-games on Harris Field during halftime of both games.
“The growth of this event in the last four years has been extraordinary, with nearly 2,000 people in attendance between the two games each fall. The event not only showcases our successful varsity teams, but recognizes the role of youth soccer (Belmont 2nd Soccer, WSC, and BSA) in nurturing the talent that makes up these teams year in and year out,” said event organizer John Carson. “With event limitations behind us, we hope to have our biggest crowd of all time, and it will be a really fun night that builds bonds between our “little kid” players and “big kid” high school players. As with last year, we have commitments from many organizations to create this true, soccer community event including Belmont and Winchester media companies to live stream the game for family and friends."
Admission to Soccer Night in Belmont is free, in large part to the support of Belmont Soccer Association, the youth soccer programs of both towns and Friends of Belmont Soccer. We ask the youth players to show their town pride by wearing their team uniform. Concessions, organized by Parents of Music Students (POMS) including pizza, hot dogs, snacks and drinks will be available for purchase, so families can come for the games and feed the kids at the same time.
Soccer Night in Belmont is sponsored by Belmont 2nd Soccer, Belmont Soccer Association, The Phoenix Landing, with special thanks to Friends of Belmont Soccer (FOBS), and retiring Belmont Athletic Director Jim Davis.
Further information for soccer players who wish to participate on the field will be distributed through their 2nd Soccer, WSC, and BSA coaches in the weeks leading up to the night. Those wishing to volunteer at the event should contact [email protected]
