In addition, there is a $25 clinic fee, which covers lunch and materials. All fees are due on the day of the clinic. Rulebooks and materials will be provided. This clinic will be held January 14, 2012 from 9 am to 5 pm in the upstairs meeting room at the Manchester Meadows Soccer Complex in Rock Hill, SC. The address is 337 E. Mt.

    According to Facebook:

    Jan 28:
    The grand opening for the velodrome is scheduled for March 17th! Stay tuned for more details.

    Jan 31:
    the Velodrome is mostly complete and crews are working on completing the finish line building, parking lot, and landscaping.
    It's my understanding that racing will begin on Monday March 19:
    reception and fun laps. On track racing on the 19th.
