OCCC soccer league recruiting now

The college’s club soccer team is forming now for league play during the next three months, said head coach K.B.Yeboah.

Yeboah said all that is required to play is to be a current OCCC student.

The soccer team is coming back from their spring season where the record ended with 2-1-6.

Students interested in playing soccer should contact Yeboah at 405-255-7735.

Yeboah said there will soon be fliers posted around campus with more information on how to join.

OCCC’s Sports and Recreation Specialist Eric Watson said he had not yet received anything from the Oklahoma Soccer Association.

“That’s why a date hasn’t been announced yet,” he said.

According to its website, the Central Oklahoma Adult Soccer League fall season will begin Sept. 8.

Games are played on Sunday afternoons at the Southlakes Park Soccer Complex at SW 119th and Meridian. OCCC’s club team will play in a yet undetermined men’s division.

The current cost for the season is $35.

Yeboah said this will cover all fees for the season.

Once all the players have registered and the team has been formed, they will choose a time when everyone will be available to practice.

Yeboah said he is looking to practice at least twice a week.

The team will practice at the field on the southeast corner of campus, south of the John Massey Center.

The number of games played as of right now depends on the number of teams that sign up, Yeboah said.

The coach said they will choose a captain for the OCCC team once practices begin.
