Carlsbad United teams kicked off the season in style on September 13th at Opening Day. It was great to see so many of our members come out to support the club and celebrate the season!

This year’s event was truly a team effort, with great participation from our recreational teams, and nearly 20 competitive teams turning up to help run the event. We also saw great support from local vendors Flippin’ Pizza, Rita’s Italian Ice, Jerry’s Woodfired Hot Dogs, and Jump n’ Ride.

The day ended with one of the most exciting coaches games in club history.
It was a hard fought battle by both sides, but the girls coaches prevailed 3-2 with a stoppage time goal by Coach Oli (assisted by Coach Alex).

A huge THANK YOU to all of the recreational teams who put together over 100 amazing raffle baskets, to all the competitive teams who helped make it such a fun day by running game booths, and to all of our board members, staff and teams who helped with set up, clean up, and selling tickets throughout the day.  Thanks for your willingness to lend a hand and for helping make Opening Day such a fun event for all!
