Kohl's US Youth Soccer American Cups Comes to North Little Rock

April 22, 2008 10:00 PM
Over 2,400 kids to take field in Kohl's US Youth Soccer American Cup
North Little Rock, Arkansas will host the Kohl's US Youth Soccer American Cup, the largest recreational youth soccer festival in the United States, at the Burns Park Soccer Complex, May 3-4.  The Cabot Soccer Association Boys and Girls Under-6 through Under-18 Kohl's US Youth Soccer American Cup will bring together 140 teams on 15 soccer fields for the 8th annual soccer tournament held in North Little Rock, Arkansas.
Launching at the North Little Rock Kohl's American Cup, Airheads, the official non-chocolate candy of US Youth Soccer, will pump up the action with the Airheads "Summer Fun Zone," May 3-4. Airheads "Summer Fun Zone" is a destination for players, siblings and friends to hang out, play interactive games and activities, and grab some Airheads samples between games. The "Fun Gurus" who pilot the Hummer H3 are ready with giant games of tag, super squirt guns, and other "out-of-control" games including soccer.  
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.
