Roughrider Soccer Relocating
It was reported on this date last year, the Roughrider Soccer program will be relocating and moving their operations to Point Roberts, Washington because of the lack of an on-campus soccer field at Yavapai College. Well, the day has arrived! Big Foot Moving Company of Big Timber, Montana will be loading up the existing soccer equipment and supplies today and transporting the items to Point Roberts, Washington where the town recently approved a 2.1 million dollar facility to be completed prior to the upcoming fall season. All players will take Yavapai College on-line courses to maintain eligibility while residing in the scenic setting. Point Roberts is a part of the mainland United States but is not physically connected to it. The community is located in a small rectangular-shaped U.S. enclave just below the 49th parallel. It’s surrounded on three sides by water and shares an international border with Canada on its northern side. The move should also enhance recruiting efforts where many speedy soccer players are currently located in the United States Federal Witness Protection Program including recently signed Roughriders Vic Ferrari, Nick Jaguar and Chick Corvette. In addition, the move will allow former Roughrider great Boom Boom Bartosa to join the team this fall as technical director. When not representing Yavapai College on the field, the players will be residing seaside and relaxing on their front porch at the Seaview Farm Cottages located in quaint and quiet Point Roberts, less than a 30-minute drive from downtown Vancouver, British Columbia. The season opens against Chandler-Gilbert Community College on August 23. This release was posted on APRIL 1st.
