Over 1,500 kids to take field in Kohl's US Youth Soccer American Cup
MANCHESTER, N.H. (October 10, 2008) – Manchester, N.H. will host the Kohl's US Youth Soccer American Cup, the largest recreational youth soccer festival in the United States, at the Manchester East, South, North and West Suncook October 25 - 26.  The New Hampshire Soccer Association Under-12, 14, 16 and 19 Boys and Girls Kohl's US Youth Soccer American Cup will bring together numerous teams on 15 soccer fields for the annual soccer tournament held in Manchester.
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.
Another proud partner of US Youth Soccer will bring added excitement to the Orchard Soccer Club Kohl's American Cup as Liberty Mutual presents Responsible Sports, a program dedicated to championing and celebrating responsibility in youth sports. Players, coaches and fans are invited to stop by the Responsible Sports tent to pick up a free water bottle and ""Responsible Sports Central"" white board, enter to win a Responsible Sports Duffle bag and learn about the valuable resources and expert advice available to youth sport parents and coaches.

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.
