    Orlando has begun practices in preparation for the Summer 2007 season of FESL.

    Galleons are planning tryouts in the next few weeks.

    Any news on Deportiva or the Hurricanes?

    Okeechobee held tryouts last week and should be holding another set of tryouts in the next week or two. Okeechobee News is covering the team... paper is a bit old skool, so I don't think many links will be available.

    PSL Hurricanes held a tryout last week and will also be working with the Galleons during their tryouts on the 14th.


    .... New Team is also on the burner at the moment....could be based around the WPB area.

    Not this season no. The closest to you would be Palmerias SC based in the northern Palm Beach area.

    Boca area is now on the burner and may also come into the league soon.

    Probably Orlando, although Okeechobee isn't too far off. Treasure Coast is 2 1/2 hours away on the opposite coast.

    Just found out about this league. Looks interesting! As a Floridian Soccer Fan, I am STARVED for live action.

    I read online about registration for players and teams. Would anyone be interested in starting a team in the Tampa/St. Pete area? I live in Tarpon Springs and have always thought it would be a great area for a small semi-pro or PDL squad. There are a ton of soccer fans and fields to play on.

    I am a photographer/writer/web developer and I would love do anything I can promote the league and teams.

    "Sneaky" Pete MArino will play for Gold Coast.

    If there ever was a league in the USA that should play Fall to Spring it is this one.

    Okeechobee SC plays near my parents winter home in Fort Drum. I can't imagine many people showing up to there games. :confused:
    There' not much out there particularly in the Summer.

    This league would make a nice winter league like the PDL. MLS could send their developmental players there.

    "Sneaky" Pete Marino plays for the Treasure Coast Galleons.

    With the majority of Florida being engrossed with the local,college and NFL football seasons....soccer takes a major backseat to football during the fall to spring. Fields and fans are more readily available during the spring-summer.

    As to Okeechobee, it's full of Central & South American migrant workers who work for the citrus companies. It will be interesting to see how many people show up for their matches... however the team is set up for a long run within the league as their city/county is full of talented players.

    Yes.... paper was printed one week before yesterday and 24 hours before the league went with a 5/26 kick off date. HomeTown News prints bi-weekly and not daily.

    www.FESLSoccer.com .... you'll see the real schedule there.

    The Galleons are playing Miami Tango this weekend in their final warm up match before the season.

    Okeechobee kicked off the 2007 FESL season against the Treasure Coast Galleons. The Galleons walked out winners 4-2 with "Sneaky" Pete Marino getting two goals for Galleons. Antonio Rose struck the first goal and Scott Cunningham got the eventual match winner. Okeechobee native & standout High School player Omar Guerrero hit one of what should be many more to come.

    Galleons 4 - Okeechobee SC 2
