2014 BLAINE NORTH AMERICAN UPDATE
After much discussion and deliberation last night and this morning we are sad and disappointed to announce all of the U13 and older age groups for the Blaine North American Challenge Cup have been cancelled for this weekend. Due to the heavy rain we just do not have enough larger fields that will make that part of the tournament possible. Also with this decision all parts of our Blaine Rec Soccer program will we cancelled for the weekend. The part of the tournament that we can still get in for the weekend is U9-10-11 and 12's. Games tonight for 11 and 12's will played but please check for a revised schedule after 2pm for possible field and time changes for the entire weekend.

Again we are very sorry for all of the inconveniences this has caused many of you. Full refunds will be given to all team U13 and older but be please be patient as we will work through those as quickly as possible.

Thanks again for your understanding.
