Countdown To Kickoff

The Quakes have officially finished their pre-season, which means there's just one week of practising left until the start of the 2011 MLS regular season. Their final tune-up came against the Portland Timbers during a closed-door scrimmage at Buck Shaw Stadium. The match ended in a 1-1 draw, with Chris Wondolowski getting on the scoresheet yet again, making it five matches in a row with a goal. Joe Nuxoll from Center Line Soccer was on hand to snap some pictures.
MLS' Salary Cap Challenge fantasy game was just released, and definitely worth checking out. You only pick seven players and add up your points on a weekly basis. There's already a group created for Quakes fans!
Also just annouced was the expansion of the Quakes pre-academy system. Tryouts for the U12 pre-academy development program are coming soon, and will also feature the opportunity for players interested in joining the U14 pre-academy pool. Tryouts will be held on March 16th, 23rd  & 30th from 5:30-7:30pm at Lincoln High School in San Jose.
In honor of the rapidly approaching First Kick 2011, why not end this update with a mantra for the team this coming weekend against Real Salt Lake: WINNING!
