Monsoons cancel first night of the 7th Annual 3 v 3 tournament.

For the first time in seven years, games at the 3V3 tournament were cancelled due to weather. Thankfully, the field coordinator was tracking the weather and noticed lightning strikes were less than four miles away. This information was brought to the attention of the foundation’s President. The decision to cancel last night’s games was difficult. However, Steve and Francie felt the safety of all participants was paramount.

All brackets have been modified to reflect an additional game to tonight’s schedule. Please check out the new brackets page.

Have fun!

Stephen A. Placencia Soccer Field Dedication

Stephen has always been a beautiful soul and his way of life is the inspiration for many people. His love of life people and soccer is what lead to the pursuit of having a soccer field named in his honor. Stephen learned the game of soccer and played many games at Lincoln Park, so it seemed an appropriate choice to have renamed.

With the help of many people who signed petitions, workers from the City of Tucson Parks and Recreation Department and support from Councilwoman Shirley Scott’s office a unanimous vote was received from Mayor and Council. On November 6, 2010 the soccer fields at Lincoln Park were dedicated to Stephen and renamed the “Stephen A. Placencia Soccer Fields”.
