New-school versus old-school. Present against past. Youth confronts experience. Once a year, these contrasting styles meet on the battle field for a clash of epic and mythical proportions in the legendary Waverly Soccer Alumni Game (WSAG). All alumni of the Waverly high school soccer program are welcome, nay, obliged, to report for duty on August 25 at the sacred grounds where Waverly’s soccer field lies in order take on the new guard of Waverly soccer in the latest chapter of the WSAG chronicles.
This year, we will put a new spin on the WSAG by adding a fundraising component; an initiative we hope will become part of the the WSAG tradition. In this, the inaugural year of fundraising, we are proud to present all of our donations to the Sparrow Health System with half of all donations being earmarked for Sparrow Hospital’s Cancer Center and the other half for Sparrow’s Hospice Service.
In the past year, Rufus Gladney and Ann Schneidewind, two parents of Waverly soccer alums, passed away due to complications from cancer. Sparrow’s Cancer Center and hospice department were chosen as this year’s fundraising recipients because of the pivotal role they played in helping Rufus and Ann get the care they needed to live as well as the compassion and resources they needed to pass on in a dignified and peaceful manner.
Please help us honor the memories of Rufus, Ann, other parents of Waverly soccer alumni that have passed of cancer or have made use of hospice services, and anyone else that has benefited from the services offered by Sparrow Hospital by participating in this year’s WSAG and donating to our fundraising campaign.
Join us after the game for barbecue, conversation, nostalgia, and trash talking between players.
You can sign up to play in this year's WSAG, or volunteer to help with the post-game barbecue by barbecuing or donating barbecue food by emailing Josh Gladney at firstname.lastname@example.org.
