Upcoming Kitsap Pumas events
The Kitsap Soccer Club is hosting open tryouts for prospective professional players Feb. 13 and 14 at Gordon Field at the Fairgrounds.
The non-refundable registration fee is $50. Prospects are encouraged to pre-register via the club Web site — www.kitsapsoccerclub.com — prior to Feb. 5 because demand is high. Pre-payment options have yet to be announced.
A reduced rate for lodging at the official team hotel is available for out-of-area trialists. Consult the Web site for details.
The club also recently launched a “Scarf Kitsap – and Beyond!!!” contest. The fan who sends in the most creative photo, incorporating an official Kitsap Pumas club scarf, will receive four complimentary tickets to the 2010 regular-season home opener.
Fans must post their entries to the team’s official Facebook page by April 22. Pumas players, coaches and staff will determine a winner.
“This should be a lot of fun,” said executive director Ben Pecora. “We received a few shots from fans over the summer showing their scarves from different places around the region - and the globe – and it was this initiative that gave us the idea to hold this sort of contest.”
