Women's Pickup Soccer in the UV

By: Nicole Losavio

I love this month’s newsletter theme and the opportunity to share fun ways to get outside over the summer months! As someone who no longer lives in the UV and who misses seeing my UVRC people on a weekly basis, the longer summer days seem to provide countless opportunities to reconnect! 

Yes, the typical summer staples will always be among my favorites like kayaking, bonfires, extra long walks, and outdoor movies will remain in the rotation. Is it really summer if you don’t float down a river, paddle across lakes and ponds, take a bike ride just to get lunch somewhere new, or take hours-long walks? (I’ll just assume your answer was no.)

That’s not why I’m writing today. I’m writing to invite the women of UVRC to come on out for pickup soccer!

Keri Niles and I started a women’s pickup group back in 2019 (aah, the pre-pandemic days) and, along with Emily Clough, are working to get it going again. This is an 18+ group that encourages players of all levels and abilities to join the fun. When we played three years ago, our numbers varied week to week but we always had a great time.

We’ll meet on Sundays at 6:30 p.m. at Pat Walsh Park in Lebanon from July 26 through August. To learn more, ask questions, or get updates, consider joining the Women’s Pickup Soccer (NH/VT Upper Valley) Facebook group

Whether it’s been years (maybe even decades) since you last played or you play regularly, we hope to see you there! We had an amazing group of women who participated three years ago and I'm excited to help others find community through soccer in the months ahead.
