FORMAT

The Rec 1 Fall Festial is a one-day festival in Leesburg, specifically designed for younger children.  Games will be played on high-quality turf fields at Loudoun Soccer Park; games will be played rain or shine!  This is a festival-style event and not a tournament – all players will receive a participation award, and no standings or scores will be published.  Each team will play one (1) game, unless otherwise noted.

COACH CHECK-IN

Coaches should confirm with their Age Group Coordinator via email that they are aware of their Fall Festival game time. Coaches will receive an email from their AGC prior to the event asking for this confirmation.

On the day of the event, coaches should arrive AT LEAST 30 minutes before your kickoff time to receive your team’s awards, and post-game snack coupons.

AWARD CEREMONY

Congratulations to the winners of our annual Loudoun Soccer Awards! Winners will be presented with their awards at 1pm during the Fall Festival, so don’t miss it!

FOOD AND ACTIVITIES

Post Game Snack – each player and coach will be receiving a coupon for a post-game treat. Panera has graciously donated a cookie for each of the players as well as a juice box.

Be sure to stop by and say hello to a few of our participating sponsors!

Help Us Support Loudoun Hunger Relief

The Loudoun Soccer Junior Board of Directors is hosting a food drive to support Loudoun Hunger Relief during the Fall Festival. If you’re participating in the Fall Festival or coming out to watch your favorite little player, grab some food items and drop them off at the entrance to the field. The preferred donations include: canned goods, cereal and pasta.

BRING YOUR USED SPORTS GEAR TO HELP THE NEEDY!

Did you know that 1 in 5 under-served households are not getting their kids involved in athletics because of the rising price of sporting equipment?  Leveling the Playing Field works within the community to collect used/excess sporting equipment so that we can ensure that every kid living in and around Washington DC can enjoy the benefits of athletic involvement.  Our donations benefit Title I/Charter Schools and youth/after-school programs looking to engage their students in the physical & mental benefits of youth sports participation.  We will be collecting sports gear during the Fall Festival on October 27 at Loudoun Sports Park. Look for our table and truck for drop offs.   So clean out your garages and clear the yard of used sporting equipment so that kids who are less fortunate are able to enjoy them!  Click here to view a list of equipment you can donate.

FACILITY/EVENT RULES

  • Loudoun Soccer does not permit any pets at its events.  Please leave your pets at home.
  • Only water is permitted on the turf fields; no food, gum, sports drinks or any other items besides water may be brought onto the fields.  Please help us keep the fields in great condition.

ON-SITE HELP

An on-site Information Tent will be available to answer any questions or concerns you may have that day.

We are very excited about this season’s event; we want to make it a memorable day to close your child’s fall soccer season.  Over 1000 players will participate in this event!  The Fall Festival requires the help of many volunteers – please give a smile to them when you see them, for without them this great day would not be possible.
