THE BATTLE AT THE JACK HAS BEEN CANCELED!
To All Teams,
This is a difficult email to write.
River City United Soccer Club regrets to inform you that the Battle of the Jack, Fall 2021 has been canceled. This is due to the fact that many of the age brackets, in both girls and boys, did not fill up as well as we anticipated.
All teams that have paid will receive a full refund of their tournament fee. If you paid using the PayPal system you will receive your refund from that system. If you mailed a check, we will return your uncashed check to you by mail. Ss compensation for your interest and efforts to participate in the Battle of the Jack, you will be emailed a $50 discount voucher that can be used for any future Battle at the Jack.
Please note: If you have reserved hotel rooms for your team, please cancel them as soon as possible so as to not incur any cancellation fees.
River City will be reviewing the how’s and why’s as to why things turned out the way they did for our Fall tournament and we will implement changes to bolster our ability to hold successful Battles in 2022. As I mentioned earlier it is very difficult on our club’s part to have cancel the Battle. It was not an easy decision. We offer you our sincerest apologies for any inconvenience it has caused you and your teams.
Mike Remus, Tournament Director
