The union is being spearheaded by the Caldwell County Soccer Association and youths from Trigg, Lyon, Crittenden, Livingston, Hopkins and Christian counties are being invited to participate.
Teams featured in the inaugural season will vary based on response, but the plan is to field at least one U10 and U12 boys and girls team this fall. Youths born between Aug. 1, 2000, and July 31, 2004, are invited to tryout.
“This is another step in raising the level of competitive soccer in this area.” said Derrick Fuqua, CCSA president. “Those that want to play at a more competitive level will have that opportunity, and those that want to play recreational will have that option in each county.”
The teams will play under the banner of “Pennyrile Valley Soccer,” although a team nickname and colors have not been established.
Tryouts will be held from 6-8 p.m. on June 23, 26 and 30 at the CCSA soccer fields in Princeton.
