SMV and Practice Cancellations
NVC/SMV is not linked to the school system as far as cancelling practices. Rochester Park and Rec is used as the determining factor whether practice will take place. If they cancel we will not have practice. Obviously we want you to use your best judgment in bad weather situations. Let your coaches know you are not able to make it in. Below is the link to Park and Rec. Click on "Rainout Line" on that page.

2017 SMV Scholarship Winners!!!
Due to the fact that so many smaller clubs are not fielding teams this JO Season, we are in need of additional coaches!!
Our tryout numbers have almost doubled from last year and we want to provide an opportunity for as many players as we can during this difficult time...they just want to PLAY!!
