Soccer Club

We represent a diverse group of graduate students from various programs within the Graduate College of the University of Vermont with one goal: a desire to play and enjoy one of the world’s most fun games, soccer. In the spirit of friendship, we entreat students to wear indoor cleats or shoes as the game is played on the turf (artificial grass) field to avoid unnecessary injuries. The game is a Co-ed pick-up soccer activity meaning both men and women play together so we suggest individuals are very careful not to play aggressively or deliberately cause injury to another player. Game are every Friday 8pm to 10 pm in Patrick Gym, next to the indoor tennis court. Please contact Xiaoxi Liu for more information.
