December 17-- The Vidalia Heritage Soccer Academy travelled to Jekyll Island to compete in the “Festive Holiday 3v3 Challenge.” Players ranging in age from 7-18 took part in the 1-day tournament. 

“We took 8 teams to the tournament, with each team having 4-5 games throughout the day, so it was a very busy day for us.” Coach Jeremy Moore notes. 

“Unlike traditional full-sided soccer, 3v3 soccer is played on a small field with no goalkeepers.  It is a much faster-paced format, and a great way for our kids to be introduced to soccer at a highly competitive level,” Moore adds. 

Although the results in terms of wins and losses was not great, Moore feels the tournament was a great benefit for his kids: “We knew going in to this tournament we were going to be facing more experienced and more skilled players.  That is the environment I want our kids exposed to. 

"The tournament atmosphere was great, everyone seemed to enjoy themselves, and I saw an excitement for the sport of soccer growing in the kids and many of their parents.  More importantly, the kids learned a great deal about higher level soccer and where we want our program to be.”
