Blount United Soccer Club held its Spring Soccer Extravaganza at the Vulcan Soccer Fields in Maryville. The event provides the club members and players an afternoon of fun and games, including the much-anticipated Coaches/Managers showdown soccer game.

This year Texas Roadhouse sponsored an afternoon picnic including special recipes prepared by club president and well-known area chef John Fleer.

“This event is a wonderful opportunity to get all our families and players together for a fun afternoon before the soccer season really gets rolling,” Fleer said.

This year also included the special recognition of senior club players who will be leaving the club and going on to college to continue their soccer careers.

“BUSC is incredibly proud of all of the young ladies and men who have worked so hard on the field to support the mission of the club and who are now going on to pursue higher education,” Fleer said. “Those players who have recently committed to play in college are especially inspirational to our younger players. Through the example of our seniors, the younger players now know that if they continue to work hard at the game they love, they too can play at the next level.”
