SIOUX FALLS, SD (KELO) – The Dakota Alliance Soccer Club specializes primarily in teaching youth football skills.
“We’ve had leagues for recreation as well as for kids,” said director of soccer operations Frank Gurnick.
Now Gurnick and his team are launching a new idea.
“We try to pride ourselves on being a full service club, and that means creating opportunities for the courses and all of our members,” said Gurnick.
They recently announced the formation of their very first adult soccer community.
“Part of that is allowing parents and adults to play soccer a bit more. Another part of that is providing a continuous path because a lot of our players are coming to U18, U19, maybe college, but they’re looking for ways to keep playing, ”said James Oppenheimer.
The mission is to unite aspiring and experienced adult soccer players to play, learn and share the love of the game.
“We’re going to have smaller 6v6 games. Things will run efficiently, on time, in a very professional manner,” said Oppenheimer.
“Right now we have about 20 free agents so I’ll be putting them into teams as more and more of them sign up. We’re going to put them together as free agents, and right now I have about 4 or 5 teams that have real teams together, ”Soyer said.
Adult League commissioner Tyler Soyer said they aim to make it a bigger part of their organization.
“Potentially in adult football lessons, foot football league, men’s league,” Oppenheimer said.
But for now, it’s about bringing people together. Because when we’re on the same team, we all win.
“This is one of the main reasons we got into adult gaming because we want to build relationships and have a community where people can come together and enjoy the world’s favorite sport,” Gurnick said. .
If you want to join the community, you have until October 21 to register. For a list of games and more information about the league, visit the Dakota Alliance Soccer Club website.
