Roanoke Star Current Membership and Past Participants,
It is an exciting time for Roanoke Star with the opening of our new complex in 2017 at Countryside and the new indoor facility with Northwest Recreation. We have taken our club to the next level by hosting games and tournaments on the best fields in our region and feel our Club is ready for growth in this region.
As we move forward to our upcoming 2018/2019 season, we are planning to recognize our regional presence in Virginia by affiliating our Club with Virginia’s Blue Ridge (www.visitroanokeva.com/ ). VBR is an organization promoting and providing information on accommodations, attractions, recreation, dining, and more in Virginia’s Blue Ridge for convention, meeting, and leisure travelers. VBR has the commitment from the five governing agencies in the area including, Roanoke City, Roanoke County, Salem, Botetourt County and Franklin County to help promote the region and what it offers .
Roanoke Star will be officially changing our club name to VBR Star (www.visitroanokeva.com/sports/ ) to affiliate with VBR Sports to help promote our Club and help us with our upcoming tournaments. With the demographics of our club being just over 50% from Roanoke, we understand that we have a great opportunity to offer an Elite experience to players from this region by affiliating our Club with VBR and VBR Sports. This partnership will help brand our club in a way that we can align our club to compete with the larger communities throughout the state. We live in a beautiful part of the country, and the different communities inside our region provide us with healthy diversity.
VBR Star exists to provide all players with the opportunity to play at the next level. The next level for each player is different, and we are confident that our programs provide the quality to develop each player for their goals.
The club will be participating in a press conference with VBR Sports at Countryside Sportsplex Wednesday January 31st at 10:00 announcing the partnership.
