Please join the Herndon travel soccer fundraiser on December 18, 2021 at Bready Park! The fundraising event is highlighted by soccer games vs. coaches and includes other opportunities for donations or fundraising (see below). Players and parents can register online to player soccer against Herndon's travel coaches--all proceeds to benefit the Player Development Fund. The Player Development Fund was established to raise money to help our players participate in a soccer event or opportunity beyond their financial reach.

In order to play, you must register online and make a minimum donation of $10.00 as a player or a minimum donation of $20.00 as a parent, and you’ll be assigned a team in the appropriate age group. The first 20 players/parents who register are guaranteed to play.
