1ST ANNUAL 5 v. 5 TOURNAMENT
The Louisville Pick-up Soccer Association will host it’s first annual 5 a side soccer tournament on Sunday, August 20th
at Highland Middle School.
The tournament will be played over the course of 1 day with 2 matches running simultaneously. Matches will be played with 5 field players per team on a reduced sized pitch with small goals. There will be no goalkeepers. Match length will be officially determined once we know how many teams have entered, but most likely we will be playing 10 or 15 minute halves. The tournament will take place of the LPSA’s regularly scheduled Sunday pick-up games.
Further details concerning the format for matches will be released prior to the start of the tournament.
The tournament will be open to anyone who would like to play. However, we will allow a maximum of only 16 teams to enter on a first come first serve basis. The deadline to enter a team is Sunday, August 13th at NOON. Each team will be required to pay a $5.00 registration fee that will be used to pay for equipment for LPSA pick-up games. To enter a team send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org stating your team’s name, captain and contact information, or by speaking directly to Daniel Sanders, Ty Kreft or George Parker.
Though we do expect a competitive tournament, the purpose of the tournament is to have a good time and raise money for the LPSA. Games will be played with no referees and in the spirit of fun.
We will be distributing this info at Sundays and Thursday pick-up games. Spread the word to anyone who might be interested and who doesn’t check the board or receive email list messages. Organize your team and register now… We already have 4 teams who have entered! It’s on!
