Van Soccer Association


New Lights Illuminate Their Inaugural Game

Many friends and volunteers worked together with the Van Soccer Association Executive Officers, led by President Marcos Dos Santos and Vice President Luke Wineland during the last few weeks to accomplish a dream that was over 20 years in the making.
Two of Van’s very own U12 Teams, the Mean Green coached by Ignacio Tejeda and the Wolves coached by Aaron Vasquez, entered the field at twilight and played in what seemed like daylight.
Center Referee, Cory Harris, could easily call the sintillating game lit by ten 1500 Watt Metal Halide bulbs for an outstanding total of 1,305,000 lumens.
Electrician, Stefan Schmid, with the insight to conserve energy, wired each of the 5 new poles of two or four lights with switches, allowing light to be added only where needed, which includes two more lights each on two of the other previously lit fields.
The night time opportunities appear brighter for the Van Soccer Association.  Watch the website for your opportunity to enjoy a game of soccer in your own home town.

Code of Conduct

  • Be an encourager – not a critic, applauding good plays for both teams
  • Be kind to all children, volunteer coaches, and referees
  • Be an example of good sportsmanship in victory and defeat
Remember:  This is for the kids

Community Involvement Requested

We are very excited to be hosting the Texas Teenage 8U Girls state tournament in Van this season.  Please pass the word and help welcome these families to Van.

This opportunity has been awarded to us by Texas Teenage due to our volunteer’s commitment to the children in our community and far beyond.  We are expecting thousands of people in Van all next week.

We will be playing host to teams from all around the State of Texas and we are asking local businesses and individuals from the community to help us make it a wonderful experience for our guests.

We are very thankful to our Chamber of Commerce for stepping up and assisting us with this task.

The families that will be arriving in Van on July 13th 2015 and will be here for a week.

On behalf of the VBSA we are very thankful for any help in making this tournament something special for the girls and their families to remember.
