Cony High School hosted a soccer Play Day for both boys and girls teams at the Capital Area Recreation Area, with nearly 20 teams in total participating in games throughout the day.

Richmond High School hosted eight girls teams from around central and coastal Maine for a similar round-robin of preseason soccer.
