U17 BOYS WIN IN APOPKA
Congratulations to the U17 Boys Premier team for completing an undefeated weekend to capture the Metro PCS Cup. The team outscored the opposition 12-1 in their four (4) games to win the tournament. That makes two tournament victories in a row as they captured the Adidas Cup Challenge a few weeks ago. They look for a third title this weekend in the NASA Adidas Friendship Cup and College Showcase 2016 in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Dates, times and locations for the 2016-17 Plant City FC Lancers tryouts have been set. The Lancers are proud to be a member of the Florida Youth Soccer Association (FYSA) and these dates are in line with their rules. Tryouts are absolutely free to attend and are open for all boys and girls. At the tryout sessions, you will be given the financial obligations to play academy/competitive soccer for the Lancers. If you have any questions, please contact the Lancers via e-mail at email@example.com.
Please pay close attention as tryouts will be done by birth-year this year. U.S. Soccer mandates have changed some of the rules for making teams next season and so we will adjust the tryout process to reflect the U.S. Soccer initiative.
Please download, print, fill out and bring (or e-mail a completed version to us at firstname.lastname@example.org) the 2016-17 Player Registration Form and Concussion Form at the links below to tryouts to help speed up the registration process.

2002s = U15
