Over 2,400 kids to take field in Kohl's US Youth Soccer American Cup
FAYETTEVILLE, Ga. (November 7, 2008) – Fayetteville, Ga. will host the Kohl's US Youth Soccer American Cup, the largest recreational youth soccer festival in the United States, at the McCurry Park North and South, Lovejoy Park and Tyus/Cowan Park during November 15 and 16.  The Georgia Youth Soccer Association Under-10, 12, 14, 16, and 19 Boys and Girls Kohl's US Youth Soccer American Cup will bring together 158 teams on numerous soccer fields for the annual soccer tournament held in Fayetteville.
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.
Admission to the American Cup is free.
