Richmond Strikers to host TeamFirst camp for girls
Citizen Staff Reports 06/07/12
The Richmond Strikers have been selected, out of a nationwide search, by the TeamFirst Soccer Academy to host a prestigious soccer camp June 19-21 for girls ages 8-19. Mia Hamm, Kristine Lilly and Tisha Hoch, who combined have five Olympic gold medals, five World Cup Championships and 12 NCAA Titles, will be conducting the camp.
The camp will take place at Striker Park in Glen Allen and is open to all players regardless of club affiliation.
Jay Howell, incoming director of ECNL and girls director for the Strikers said, “The Strikers and TeamFirst's developmental philosophies 'sync' very well. Mia, Kristine, and Tisha all demonstrate what unselfish, positive, hard work can develop - confidence, character, and strength. Our players may not all become world champions, but they can become outstanding individuals by emulating these champions and their ideals.”

Pelon’s serves up a good mix of variety, value
I first stumbled into Pelon's on a Wednesday night, lured by the promise of $2 tacos and beers. At those prices, I had assumed the place was a hole in the wall, and was pleasantly surprised by the spacious, pleasant interior.
Having spent my teen summers in Virginia Beach surfing, I also felt instantly at home amid the ocean-themed decor. From the ride-the-waves posters lining the walls and the TV displaying non-stop surfing footage, to the foosball table and enormous spools serving as tables, Pelon's is a delight for beach lovers and surfing fans. Reading the menu is part of the entertainment here, as patrons browse burrito choices that include Rip Tide, The Curl, Hawaiian Pipeline and Big Kahuna. > Read more.
