West Valley United Dominates at the 2016 Stanford Classic!!
- WV United 05/06B White – Stanford Classic D3 Champions!
Congratulations to the West Valley United teams! This August has started out with a Bang!! The West Valley United 2005 Maroon, ‘05/06 White and the 2007 Boys teams each won 1st place in their respective brackets! WV United Maroon and 2007 teams went undefeated in the Stanford D1/D3 tournament. The United 05/06 White team lost 1 game to the team they would eventually meet again in the final. This time they would play “their game” and prevailed 4-0!
We began the season this summer with drop-in tryouts, weekly practices and ad-hoc technical training clinics. Throughout the hot summer the boys were on the field honing their skills, practicing their footwork and playing scrimmages in preparation for their upcoming season. We have a combination of returning players and new players and they are building great chemistry working as a team.
We have had wins and losses, however the boys have remained resilient and are learning with each win and each loss. We look forward to the 2016 Fall Season to begin!!
Update: Beginning Spring 2017, the United 05/06 team will be separating into 2 teams, creating a United 2006 Team.
