3v3 Live runs over 180 local events across the country each year, including events in both Belleville and St. Louis this past Summer. Winners advanced to Regional Championship events and that led to the 3v3 Live National Championships held in Memphis over Thanksgiving week. Three teams from the area captured titles in their age group – Band of Soccer Sisters (2005), Blue Crush (2009) and Madrina’s Goal Diggers (2010). I’ve collected teams and players from the event below.
Apologies to any team I missed, contact Ole to help me update this report. Include a link to social media that I can point to or grab a photo.
Congratulations to all, only the Top 25 based upon point totals achieved in the qualifying rounds were invited. A select group!
