The East Bay soccer community was out in full force on Oct. 8, when the Cal State East Bay men and women's soccer teams hosted Youth Soccer Day during their CCAA doubleheader with Cal State Stanislaus at Pioneer Stadium. More than 300 youth soccer players representing 48 teams from the local community were on hand to cheer on the Pioneers and connect with Cal State East Bay players and coaches.
“My goals were to have the youth teams be a part of a great experience, have the players create lasting memories form their interaction with our East Bay teams and for families to have a positive experience with the university and the athletics department,” Marketing Coordinator and event organizer Tenaya Davis said. “We met those goals and the event was better than I ever expected. The youth players, coaches and families were a pleasure to have and I think we made a big step towards taking Pioneer Athletics to the next level.”
