BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – Play begins this week in the Florida High School Athletic Association (FHSAA) girls and boys state championship semifinals and finals, hosted at the Titans Soccer Complex on the Melbourne Campus.
The girls tournament will involve 20 teams from throughout the state in five classes – 5A through 1A – from Wednesday through Saturday.
The boys tournament also will involve 20 teams in the same five classes from Wednesday through Saturday Feb. 11-14.
The Melbourne Campus facility also hosted the FHSAA tournaments in 2014 along with Space Coast Sports Promotions and will host the collegiate-level NJCAA Women’s Division I Soccer National Championship Tournament through 2016.
High school tournament admission is $9 per session. Parking is $5.
“Hosting the FHSAA tournaments gives Eastern Florida the opportunity to showcase what the college is all about both academically and athletically,” said Eastern Florida Associate Vice President for Athletics and head women’s soccer coach Jeff Carr.
“Having the high school teams and their parents, friends and supporters on our growing Melbourne Campus benefits the college and the community at large.”
“It would not be possible without the support of our President Dr. Jim Richey and the Board of Trustees,” said Jeff Carr.
