New Kent Sharks teams coming Fall 2018!
The club is excited to announce the partnership with New Kent Parks & Rec to provide opportunities for the 'travel level' soccer players in the area. Many New Kent residents were looking for the next level after playing in the New Kent Parks & Rec league for many seasons. The residents had to travel West to Richmond or East to Williamsburg to be part of a travel club. Martin Vickerton, Club Director met with the New Kent County leaders and the club and county were able to form a partnership to bring travel soccer to New Kent!
The first tryout to prepare for the Fall 2018 season is Thursday, April 28th at 5:30pm. Please go to the events page for more information and register.
The club has had strong connections with New Kent families for many years. We currently have multiple New Kent county residents playing for the Tidewater Sharks travel clubs. In addition, New Kent high Soccer JV head Coach Derek Yates has played an integral part in bringing the club to the county. His love and passion for New Kent and soccer has had a positive impact on soccer in the area.
The goal for the Fall 2018 season is to form teams at the younger age groups that will compete in the local travel leagues. These players will then continue to develop in a professional club environment and be at a high level once they are eligible to play for the New Kent County High School team.
Go New Kent Sharks!
