MSVU Kick For A Cure

September 29

The Mount Saint Vincent University (MSVU) soccer teams are thrilled to introduce the second annual MSVU Kick For A Cure! After raising $1100 to support breast cancer research at the inaugural Kick For A Cure and seeing so many come out to support the cause, MSVU is bringing this event back in order to continue supporting such an important cause during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

MSVU would love for United DFC members to join the teams in wearing pink during their regular season finales against St. Thomas University on October 20th. The women kickoff at 12pm, and the men follow at 2pm, both at Mainland Commons.

Entry for the games will be by donation, with all proceeds going to the Canadian Cancer Society.

Check out the Facebook event to RSVP, and for more updates and info!

Did you know?

Did you know that training on 1/3 of a full field for 1.5 hours is equivalent in pricing to training on a 1/2 of a full field for 1 hour?  Both options have advantages and coaches plan their training to utilize the space and time differently depending on topic and number of players. Please note that programs listed as utilizing 1/3 field for 1.5 hours may be allocated the 1/2 field for 1 hour based on field availability, and vice versa.
