El Paso, Texas will host the Kohl's US Youth Soccer American Cup, the largest recreational youth soccer festival in the United States, at the J.P. Shawver Park May 3-4.  The El Paso Youth Soccer Under-6 through Under-19 Kohl's US Youth Soccer American Cup will bring together over 50 teams on 10 soccer fields for the 2nd annual soccer tournament held in El Paso, Texas.
The Kohl's American Cup offers youth soccer players an opportunity to play in a high-quality tournament in a fun, family-like atmosphere.  The program was started in 2000 as an avenue to highlight recreational soccer players and promote fair play.  Players receive equal opportunities and benefits within their level of play, with an emphasis on participation, rather than competition.
This event is one of over 60 Kohl's American Cup tournaments being held from February to December.  All tournaments are open to players registered with a US Youth Soccer State Association recreational league.
Admission to the American Cup is free and Saturday, May 3, from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m., a live mariachi concert will be held for all to enjoy. At 6 p.m., South Texas Youth Soccer Association Director of Player Development, Carlos Menjivar, will conduct a coaching clinic at J.P. Shawver Park for all coaches.
