New to Louisville this fall will be an alignment for women’s soccer that includes a 7v7 format with smaller fields. Gretchen Carr, director of the league told us “The new format will allow a faster, more exciting brand of soccer. It’s a great workout with an even better team atmosphere, and players won’t be committing an entire day to a game.” Please contact Gretchen at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information as teams are currently being put together.
