2016 Hounds Schedule is Out: First Thoughts

16opener

The 2016 Riverhounds (and full USL) schedule is out. Some quick thoughts on the schedule as well as some dates to circle on the calendar (for those who haven’t already circled all 15 home dates).

The first thing to notice is that all home games are at 7pm. No more scorching in the sun for afternoon kickoffs.  There are also no games placed less than three days apart. The team avoided all back-to-back dates last year, but did have an instance of two games in three days while up in Canada. While this year features more mid-week games, mostly towards the end of the season, it avoids some of the ultra-bunched up scheduling the league has used in the past. Of the 15 home dates, 10 fall on a Saturday, two on a Wednesday, and…



A Couple of Announcements, Board Nominations are Open

Today, the Steel Army Board of Directors formally accepts the resignations of Bobby Zebransky, Vice-President, and Bryan Seybert, Treasurer. Both men, who will still be active members of Steel Army community, have decided to step away from the board to focus more time on their careers.

We would like to put in writing our sincere gratitude to both Bobby and Dyson for what they have done to help grow and stabilize the organization into what it is today. They are the embodiment of what it means to live for the Club and the Army. We encourage everyone to take a few minutes when you see them at the next tailgate or other event, and thank them for their amazing efforts.

Both positions will be filled in accordance to the Army By-Laws.

Today, being a calendar month before the 2016 Annual General Meeting, will open the nominations for the two Member Representative positions on…



Off-season News and Notes: New Years Edition

We hope everyone had a great New Year’s Eve and aren’t nursing too bad of a hang over today. Now that we’re officially into 2016, and more or less half way through the off-season, it’s time for the hype train to slowly get on its way. Before we get too deep into 2016 here’s some news and notes from the last month or so.

This was talked about quite a bit already so I won’t dive into it further. You can read our initial reaction here.

Player News

The Hounds have been pretty mum regarding the roster since in recent months. The silence has been a little frustrating, especially seeing other teams announcing guys left and right on social media. From what we’ve heard the Hounds have signed guys, but for various reasons they couldn’t start announcing them until after the 1st. That should mean we…
