FRISCO, Texas (July 18, 2011) – Fredericksburg, Va. will host the Kohl's US Youth Soccer American Cup, the largest recreational youth soccer tournament in the United States, at Patriot Park July 23-24, 2011. The Under-6 through Under-16 boys and girls participating in the Kohl's US Youth Soccer American Cup will bring together 80 teams on 10 soccer fields for the annual Kohl's American Cup held in Fredericksburg.
 
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.

The Kohl's American Cup Soccer Experience will add even more excitement to the Fredericksburg 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.

Virginia Youth Soccer will feature a TOPSoccer Jamboree alongside the Fredericksburg 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.

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.
