Parents to Face Off in Soccer, Softball Tourneys

May 18, 2018 10:10AM ● By DigMB Staff
Two popular fundraising events for the MBX Foundation are coming up, with a parents' soccer tournament this Saturday and a similar softball tournament on Sunday, June 10. 

For both events, it's parents versus parents, grouped into teams by school affiliations.

Weekend Warriors mix with active athletes who compete regularly on the pitch or the softball diamond in their free time. For some players, it's a fun day in the park. But both tournaments tend to turn tense as they draw to a close, with bragging rights at stake in the finals.

Who says there's no competitive spirit in a laid-back beach town like Manhattan Beach? No one!

Come out Saturday to Mira Costa's all-new West Field (along Meadows Ave.) to see the 12th annual Goodrich Parents' Soccer Classic.

First games: 8:30am

Playoffs begin: 2:15pm

Tournament Final: 4:00pm

A snack stand is open all day, and a taco truck will be open for lunch from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

If you're interested in playing in the 13th annual Parents Softball Classic on Sunday, June 10, you'll need to connect with your school's coach. (Parents are designated to play for the school which their youngest child is currently attending.)

To get connected with a school softball team, contact the tournament director, Dave Fratello, by email (by clicking here).
