Picture Day 2013
Picture Day for Upper Dublin Soccer Club was a huge success! For the 2nd year in a row, the Club had pictures taken of players and teams inside at the Upper Dublin Soccer Club High School Cafeteria. Pictured here are two teams: The High School Girls from Costa Rica. Costa Rica plays in our prestigious Girls High School Recreational League. Many of these girls have been playing recreational soccer since they were 5 years old! Joining them is our youngest up and coming U-8 girl’s travel team, the Black Magic, dressed in their away, all black with the red sash kits. Both teams loved this impromptu picture!
