Cost per player: 
The cost per player is $27 made payable to me.  United has secured a sponsorship from Dorry’s Downtown in Downtown Cary that will pay a substantial portion of the fees for the tournament and US Club registration.

Location:  BB&T Soccer Park, 5765 US Hwy 158 Advance NC 27006
Directions:  From Holly Springs via US 64/421:  64 west to 421 north.  Stay on 421 north through Winston-Salem.  Go to exit 188/238 – Interstate 40.  Take 40 west to exit 182/Harper Road.  Go south to US 158.    Go west/right.  The complex is on the opposite side of the Yadkin River.  Via I-40, go 40 west through Winston-Salem to exit 182/Harper Road and follow the instructions above.

Hotel Information:

A block of rooms has been reserved at the Hampton Inn Hanes Mall at the discounted rate of $95/night.

We’re staying at the Hampton inn Hanes Mall. To get to the fields, either take I 40 West or US 421 to US 158/Stratford Road.

The deadline to make the reservation is June 1.  There are two ways to reserve your room.
1.  Call the hotel at 336 760 1660 and make sure that you reference the Holly Springs United or HSU rate.
2.  Go to the direct Hampton Inn/United link below.  This has the dates and the code already in place.

Team Dinner:

Reservations for Saturday night have been made for 7PM at Cities Bar and Grill, halfway between the hotel and the fields.

Stratford Road in Winston-Salem. From US 421/I 40, take Stratford Road south (US 158) toward Bermuda Run. Cross Hanes Mall Blvd. Cities is approximately a mile up on the right.

Practice/Important Dates:

We’ll have one practice, two friendlies and a BBQ leading up to tournament weekend.  These dates are tentative!

June 4     Practice          5:45-7PM     Lee Field, NC State University
June 7     Friendly          6PM              vs. Satellites @ Davis Drive Park
June 8     BBQ/Movie   6PM               @ Attarian house
June 12    Friendly         6PM               vs. Satellites @ Davis Drive Park
June 16    State Games  TBD
June 17     State Games TBD
June 23    Lunch at Dorry’s TBD

For the friendlies, try to be there 15 minutes prior to game time.  For the BBQ, in the past, we had entire families over for the event, but that was when we only had eight on the roster.  I’m not sure that our house is big enough with 16, so if we could limit it to players that would be really helpful!


All Games on Field 1 at Bermuda Run.  Please be at the field no later than 1/2 hour prior to kickoff!

8AM  United vs. EDSC Pythons
12PM United vs. SS United
