p.s. Concessions are Back!

Ground Control consists of students and family members from Ballston Spa Middle School’s “Launching Pad Productions” theater group. They are responsible for bringing concessions back to BARC soccer, so please say “hello” and let them know that you appreciate their efforts to keep the concessions available during soccer season. Proceeds to go benefit BARC and Launching Pad. We started back up on Saturdays in the Fall of 2018 and will continue on Saturdays for the Spring of 2019, let us know if you’d like us to try to do limited concessions on weeknights in future seasons! See you on the field!
