The 2015 Yavapai College home athletic season begins at 6 p.m. Friday, Aug. 21, as the NJCAA preseason No. 5-ranked Roughriders' soccer team hosts the Golden Eagles from Laramie County Community College (Wyoming) at Mountain Valley Park in Prescott Valley.
On Saturday, Aug. 22, Yavapai will host its Prescott home/Arizona Conference opener at Ken Lindley Field, also at 6 p.m., against Gateway Community College.
For the first two matches, the first 25 fans will receive an exclusive YC water bottle, YC fuzzies and national championship mini-pennants (while supplies last).
Some of Yavapai College athletics' other promotions this fall include:
Zig-Zag Buzzer Beater Game. One ticket will be drawn at halftime for the opportunity to dribble, kick and score a soccer ball in 7 seconds or less. Beat the buzzer and win the prize. Sign up and pay at the new promo table to participate. Cost is $1 per entry ticket. You may pay for as many entries as you wish to increase your chances of winning.
A 50/50 raffle with a ticket being drawn at halftime. Tickets are $1 apiece or $5 for six.
Along with the 50/50 raffle, a ticket will be drawn at halftime on Aug. 21 and 22 to win one season pass to the Roughriders' soccer team's matches.
Also at Yavapai's new promo table, the college is introducing a new Volleyball Rewards Program in which paying fans can receive YC gear by attending anywhere from two to eight Roughriders' volleyball matches throughout the season.
Fans must check in at the promo table to sign up and get a Volleyball Rewards Card. Fans receive credit for each match attended with an exclusive Roughrider Stamp on their card. The more stamps you have, the more rewards you'll receive.
Stop by the promo table on game days to register for promotional activities and/or to receive the Roughrider E-blast and stay current on athletic promotions and events.
Ticket fees per person are as follows:
$3 - adults.
$2 - students/veterans/senior citizens.
