Jesuit Soccer in 1982

It’s time to celebrate Blue Jay Soccer. A big part of that celebration is connecting with the Jesuit team of 2015-2016 while remembering and honoring those Blue Jay soccer players who are the foundation of today’s program.

You and your family are invited to the Jesuit Soccer Homecoming on December 12, 2015. This year’s homecoming celebration features a late lunch reception, a “soccer” gift for each soccer alumnus, lots of Blue Jay Spirit, and a chance to cheer on this year’s soccer Jays as they take on perennial Mississippi powerhouse, the Ocean Springs Greyhounds.

The soccer celebration will unfold as follows

  • 3 p.m. – Soccer alumni, their families (including those who cheered them on when they played – their parents), and the 2015-2016 Jesuit team and their families meet in Pontiff Pavilion at John Ryan Stadium for a late lunch, compliments of the Advancement Office and the parents of today’s players.
  • Each former Blue Jay soccer player will receive a gift from this year’s soccer program.
  • 3:50 p.m. – Coach Hubie Collins invites all soccer alumni (former player only, please) to the locker room to greet this year’s team.
  • 4 p.m. – Kickoff begins the game between the Blue Jays and the Greyhounds.
  • Halftime – The children of soccer alumni are invited onto Alumni Field to kick the old soccer ball around just as Dad did during his time wearing the Blue and White.

Tickets will be available when you enter at 3 p.m.: $5 for adults, $3 for children (6-12 years of age), free for children under 6.

So plan on celebrating Blue Jay soccer at the Jesuit Soccer Homecoming on December 12, 2015, at 3 p.m. at John Ryan Stadium. Please pass the word to other alumni (and their parents) of the Jesuit soccer program.
