9th Annual Kirkwood Memorial Soccer Challenge

On Sunday, October 25th beginning at 1:30 p.m. the Knights of Columbus #872, along with Harrison County Parks and Recreation will host the 9th Annual Kirkwood Memorial Soccer Challenge local qualifier. This annual competition is open to boys and girls between the ages of 9-14 (as of September 1st). There is an event for both boys and girls for ages 6, 7 and 8. However, they are not eligible to compete in the statewide competition, which will be held later in early November. This event has been a staple in the community for almost a decade now, and with the growing popularity in soccer, we have seen really good competition from the young athletes in the area. We hope to max the field and find out who is the best. As in the past, scoring will be based on accuracy as the participants will score points based on areas where they place the ball. All players will kick from a designated area and given a certain amount of attempts to accumulate points. Scoring, which starts from the most basic of kicks - the penalty kick, is decided on accuracy. Points are earned as long as the ball goes into the net. The lower corners have a score of 10 points while the upper corners are 20. All other shots into the net are valued at five. All players must have a parent or guardian with them at registration and competition will begin right after completion. The event is free of charge.
