In Pictures: Darien, New Canaan met in annual Coaches Classic Soccer match

NEW CANAAN — Demonstrating they practice what they preach, kids’ soccer coaches from Darien and New Canaan met on the field at New Canaan High School Friday night for the fourth annual Coaches Classic Soccer game.

“It’s about bringing the soccer community together from New Canaan and Darien,” said New Canaan Soccer Board member Matt Miller.

He noted that roughly 1,000 kids in grades kindergarten through eighth participate in the youth programs from each town.

Part of the proceeds of the event went to Americares for hurricane relief work—a nonprofit that originally began in New Canaan in 1979.

While Darien’s Blue Wave took the game 3 to 2, fans and participants alike just seemed happy to be there.
