FRISCO, Texas (April 25, 2011) – Clinton, Miss. will host the Kohl's US Youth Soccer American Cup, the largest recreational youth soccer tournament in the United States, at Clinton Traceway Park May 7-8, 2011. The Under-10 through Under-19 boys and girls participating in the Kohl's US Youth Soccer American Cup will bring together 140 teams on 22 soccer fields for the sixth annual Kohl's American Cup held in Clinton.
 
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.

Clinton Youth Soccer will feature a TOPSoccer Jamboree alongside the Kohl's American Cup.  US Youth Soccer TOPSoccer (The Outreach Program for Soccer) is a community-based training and team placement program for young athletes with disabilities, organized by youth soccer association volunteers. The program is designed to bring the opportunity of learning and playing soccer to any boy or girl, who has a mental or physical disability.

The Kohl's American Cup Soccer Experience will add even more excitement to the Clinton Kohl's American Cup. The Soccer Experience comes complete with three larger-than-life inflatable soccer games and numerous prizes and souvenirs for participants and their families. 

This event is one of over 60 Kohl's American Cup tournaments being held from March to December.  All tournaments are open to players registered with a US Youth Soccer State Association recreational league.
