Almost time to lace up and get out there on the field. Plenty to report starting with we have added EEB Oak Avalon Over 30s to the club,  TDFC Oak Avalon GPSL are in the first round proper of Lamar Hunt Open Cup and we now have an Executive Board. Here is hoping that together we have a successful and enjoyable 2017 season.

Events

Lamar Hunt Open Cup May 10th vs either PDL or NPSL team. The draw is on April 12th for the first round on May 10th. Hoping for a home game and lots of support. For more info see US Soccer.com . Bets are on a game against AFC Cleveland - but may be against a team from the East.

Veterans Cup July 12th to 16th. Nashville, TN. Looking to see if any interest in TDFC putting in an Over 30 team, possibly with some all stars from other teams. Or even consider Over 40 and Women's team if enough interest. For more info see US Soccerfest.com . Contact El Presidente if interested.

Riverhounds Opening Game March 25th pm vs New York Red Bulls. Support our local team as they start a promising season.
