Kohl's US Youth Soccer American Cup Comes to Ames

May 20, 2008 04:15 PM
 
Over 1,100 kids to take field in Kohl's US Youth Soccer American Cup
 
Ames, Iowa will host the Kohl's US Youth Soccer American Cup, the largest recreational youth soccer festival in the United States, at the Hunziker Youth Sports Complex during May 30 – June 1.  The Ames Soccer Club Boys and Girls Under-6 through Under-13 Kohl's US Youth Soccer American Cup will bring together 110 teams on 20 soccer fields for the 3rd annual soccer tournament held in Ames, Iowa.
 
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.
