2017 Fall Soccer

The Fall Soccer Schedule is available now. Weeks six and seven of the season are awaiting approval from the Durham Athletic Boosters, but will tentatively be held at Freeport Middle School on the 14th (5/6 at South Portland) and at Durham Community School on the 21st (grades 1-6). Little Falcons will not meet on 10/14 (as scheduled) but will have their final day on 10/21 at FMS at 8:30 a.m.

Little Falcons meets at 10 a.m. on Saturdays on Field #4 (through 10/7).

All home games are played at Hunter Road Field, 96 Hunter Road in Freeport. The fields are numbered in ascending order from the entrance. Field #1 is on the right immediately as you enter. Fields #2 through #4 are on the left. Field #4 immediately precedes the restroom building, and the baseball fields A through C (BBa, etc.), are just past the building.

The 5/6 Grade Co-ed Team will be in Standish on 9/30. The game will be played at Johnson Field, 89 Chadbourne Road at 10:30. Standish also fields a co-ed team.

Please arrive about fifteen minutes prior to your games so that you have a chance to warm up and begin immediately at the time scheduled.

Harriers 9/20 Meet: Bus Out of Service

Dear Parents and Staff,

Three busses in the district have gone out of service in the past 24 hours, and maintenance is working to get them back on the road ASAP. However, we will not have the capacity this afternoon to transport kids to the Harriers meet in Yarmouth.

Because of this, you will need to make alternate plans for your children this afternoon. The meet will still be held, and the coaches will be in attendance, wearing their iris blue and maroon shirts. The meet will begin between 4 & 4:15 p.m., and if your child plans to attend you will need to provide transportation. The teams will not meet at Durham Community or Mast Landing School.

You will need to contact your child’s school and let them know what you would like them to do: whether they should go home on the bus, be picked up at school (and by whom), or if they should attend after care as a drop-in (which you must first okay with Sarah Cass at Community Programs). Please note that the coaches may not transport children themselves.

Once at the meet, you will need to check in with your coach. You will also, as always, need to check out with them when you leave.

The meet will be held at Royal River Park, 111 E. Elm St., Yarmouth. Take Rte. 1 to Rte. 115, School St. At the end of the street, turn Right onto Main St. E. Elm St. is .3 miles ahead on the right. There is additional parking at the William H Rowe School (52 School St), but will need to walk through the park to the Elm St. entrance to find the start/finish line

Please direct questions to the most appropriate person. I will be unable to respond personally after 2 p.m.

Thank you for your understanding!

Saturday to Sundae 5K Cancelled

Due to lower than usual pre-registration for this annual fundraiser, we have had to cancel the Saturday to Sundae 5K scheduled for this Saturday, June 10.
If you are still looking for a 5K this month, We would recommend signing up for the Close to the Coast 5K/10K scheduled for next Saturday. They are raising money for a great cause and they have a wonderful event planned. https://raceroster.com/events/2017/11036/2017-close-to-the-coast-5k-10k
I’m sorry for the inconvenience. Next year we will return to our traditional date of the first Sunday in June.
