US Youth Soccer Excited to tie-up with leading Showcase for Goalkeeper talent
FRISCO, TX (October 13, 2020) – US Youth Soccer (USYS) is pleased to announce their partnership with Keeper Wars Ink, a soccer competition initiative designed and built for the specialty position of goalkeepers.
Created to give goalkeepers an exciting 1 vs. 1 platform to compete and showcase their talents, Keeper Wars Ink highlights the tremendous skills of goalkeepers and their impact to the game.
“We are thrilled to partner with Keeper Wars Ink. As a former keeper, it is an awesome opportunity for young goalkeepers to push themselves in competition and unite as a unique community amongst their peers. This is a fun and exciting experience for players and their families and we’re thrilled for our keepers to have another platform to showcase their talents,” said Skip Gilbert, CEO US Youth Soccer.
"Keeper Wars Ink was designed and built on the vision of giving back to the specialty position of goalkeepers, a position that is in a way left without much support,” explained Casey Clark, Keeper Wars Ink Founder & CEO. “Our mission is to support and give a sense of community to this position and to give goalkeepers a set stage made specifically for them. This partnership with US Youth Soccer aligns perfectly in the concept of we were both built on the idea of developing players and giving them a path to succeed at their own craft. We look forward to working with US Youth Soccer and their State Associations to continue to build on this vision for goalkeepers for years to come.”
The Keeper Wars Ink platform gives goalkeepers of all ages an opportunity to be seen as well as grow and develop their game while competing against their peers. In addition to the development of young keepers, these events also serve as a college showcase platform for those keepers who wish to pursue playing in college and beyond.
Keeper Wars Ink also gives back a percentage of their proceeds from every event to the International Myeloma foundation, which fights for those with blood cancer. They also give back to each state association they partner with, to help provide additional funds they can use to assist those in need who wish to play the beautiful game of soccer.
