New Jersey Youth Soccer and Freehold Soccer League host more than 700 soccer players at Kohl’s American Cup
FREEHOLD, NJ (Via NJ Youth Soccer) ― New Jersey Youth Soccer in partnership with the Freehold Soccer League, hosted a Kohl’s US Youth Soccer American Cup recreation soccer event for more than 700 children at the Jackson Mills soccer fields.
The Kohl’s American Cup started in 2000 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. It fosters stimulation and excitement about soccer in an effort to increase the recreational player’s interest in and love for the game.
In addition to the action on the field, participants enjoyed performances by the New York Red Bulls Street Team; a meet-and-greet with Sky Blue FC players (Maruschka Waldus and Wall Township’s Gibby Wagner), opportunity to play soccer tennis, and to have some interactive fun on oversized soccer inflatables in the Kohl’s American Cup Kid Zone.
“The Kohl’s American Cup was a great day for the Freehold Soccer Recreation Program. The Red Bulls street team, Sky Blue athletes and generous event donors created a memorable atmosphere for the children and parents alike,” said Anthony Gallo, Freehold Soccer’s Treasurer. “We thank Kohl’s, US Youth Soccer and New Jersey Youth Soccer Association for their partnership and support.”
Every player received a NJ Youth Soccer sling bag in which to carry their Kohl’s American Cup participation certificate, lanyard, wristband, US Youth Soccer FUEL magazine, MLS playing cards provided by Topps, and healthy snacks donated by Happy Family and the Healthy Kids Out of School program.
