Our current name is Motor City Classics, competing in the Women's Over-55 division, last year and again this year. Most of us have been participating in the Veteran's Cup for 10 years, starting with West Virginia. At that time, some of us played with an over-40 team, others started at the over-50 level. As we age, we move up in the age divisions. Currently, I'm the team captain, but this is a rotating position, and really doesn't mean much except you get to handle the paperwork and attend meetings. Our favorite things about the Vet Cup are traveling around the country and experiencing different places, meeting new people, and playing soccer at a high level. Best of all, though, is the enjoyment of being with and laughing with friends. It doesn't get any better than that.
My advice for new teams would be preparation: come as fit as possible since generally the games are very competitive, but win or lose, enjoy the experience.
