"Americaneagle.com is proud to have teamed up with the Kentucky Youth Soccer Association to develop the new KYSoccer.org Web site," says Jared Elliott, vice president of operations for Americaneagle.com. "As a former soccer player, I am amazed at the growth of the game and look forward to increasing the access to secure, high-end technology for US Youth Soccer and its members. Americaneagle.com looks forward to enhancing the site even further as new resources for Kentucky and other states and clubs that join the new platform emerge. This is an exciting time for the soccer community."
