KidsPeace is excited to announce that the organization’s 14th Annual KidsPeace Soccer Invitational will be held on August 20 and 21, 2011. All proceeds from the tournament will be used to support TeenCentral.Net and ParentCentral.Net, KidsPeace websites that offer free, anonymous, safe advice to teens and parents, respectively, from around the world.
The tournament will feature play by league teams and recreation plus teams playing in the upcoming fall season. This two-day soccer competition is for ages U9-U15 boy and girl teams and U16-U19 girls teams. There will be 8v8 play for U9-U12, and 11v11 play for U11-U19.
This year, KidsPeace is also offering Futsal Exhibitions games for the first time. Futsal is indoor play between teams of four featuring a heavier ball and more aggressive play.
Typically, the tournament draws up to 4,000 participants and visitors to the Orefield, PA, campus, including many neighbors and community members who enjoy watching high-level, competitive soccer. Food and beverages will be served, souvenirs will be sold and KidsPeace volunteers will be staffing the event and ensuring that it runs smoothly.
Participants are invited to camp on the grounds for the weekend, but no alcohol or pets are permitted.
Our premier sponsor is Verizon Wireless, but several additional sponsorship opportunities are available. Please contact Terry Callaghan at 610-799-7990 or KPSoccer@kidspeace.org if you would like to support this terrific event. Depending on your level of sponsorship, your organization’s name and logo will be prominently displayed during the tournament in program books, on signage and at different booths.
