Jaycee Park Parking/Speed Reminders

on .

It is very important that all drivers are aware of the speed limit and the parking restrictions in the neighborhood and in the park itself. Again, I was notified last night that there were multiple cars parked on the grass.

For all home games at Jaycee Park, please ask all of your families to park on the school side parking lot. This will allow our visitors to park in the main parking lot on the west side of the field and hopefully avoid the grass parking.

Jaycee Park is in a residential neighborhood. The speed limit is 25 mph in the neighborhood. Police presence is very high during the soccer seasons. The speed limit in the park is 15 mph. In the community and within the park there is high pedestrian traffic, please adhere to the posted speeds and stop signs.

Jaycee Park has parking on both sides of the park. As you enter the park, you may want to turn to the left where there are ample parking spots available near the play structure. There is absolutely NO PARKING on the grass or along the drive. Cars not parked in designated parking spaces will be ticketed. The circle drive MUST be kept open for emergency vehicles.

As a club we take pride in our relationship with the city of Livonia and its residents. Please help us maintain that relationship by following all of the above rules, by disposing of all garbage in the trash receptacles, and by treating the entire park with respect and care.

ECNL National Recaps

The Michigan Hawks U14, U15 and U18's all made the National ECNL Finals in 2015.  The U18 Hawks won the U18 ECNL National Championship and the U15's are in the Finals regardless of Friday's results.

Hawks win ECNL Title

on .

REDMOND, Washington — The Michigan Hawks U18 side had plenty of motivation burning in its furnace headed into the ECNL Playoffs here this week. Much of it stemmed from last season.

While the Hawks’ U14 side was busy winning a national title in Seattle in 2014, the Hawks U17 side was handed a difficult draw and couldn’t advance out of its group to make the next month’s final grouping. For a team this talented, it was a bitter pill and a tough way to end the season.

But there was another season left in the core of that U17 team. And as U18s, they made good on their desire to go out on the highest note possible.

The Hawks put in a masterclass defensive display, and a pair of headed goals on either side of the half sent them off to a 2-0 victory over West Coast FC on the last of six straight days of soccer at Sixty Acres Park. For the U14s and U18s, Tuesday represented the end of the road for the 2014-15 season. While the winners of U15, U16 and U17 groups here will move on to the ECNL Finals in Richmond, Virginia later this month, Tuesday was do-day for four sides caught in finals.

As for the Hawks, their performance was vindication for a week spent playing at a breakneck pace. The Hawks were a rolling pin in the group stage with seven points from nine matches, and a 2-1 win in the semis over a Crossfire team that had knocked out the No. 1 Dallas Sting was impressive. But this was the crowning achievement. West Coast FC actively attempted to play out of the back and through the talented Christina Settles, but it was no use. The Hawks were swarming.

They opened the scoring about 15 minutes into the match on a headed goal from Maya Piper, and they got the clincher about 10 minutes into the second half on another header from Brenna Lovera, this time off a corner. Those two, Lovera up top and Piper off her back as a second striker in attack, caused so many problems that the WCFC back line couldn’t deal with aerially. Two moments of magic ultimately proved that in spades.
