Bring new excitement to the fall season by holding a council Soccer Challenge. The program is open for Boys and Girls ages 10 - 14.
Soccer is becoming a popular sport in the country and there are more and more kids playing it every year.
All you need to hold an event is a regular soccer goal (8 feet tall and 24 feet long) and enough room for a kick from 12 yards away. Manpower should be at least 4 Knights to set the soccer balls on the kicking line, run the balls after the kick, and keep score. And of course, as many soccer balls as you can get and a thick rope.
The goal needs to be setup for scoring based on where the ball enters the goal. Use the rope to set the different targets as shown in the following picture.
1) Order your materials from the Supreme Council by filling out the Supreme Soccer Order Form.
2) Check the Regional Competition Schedules by checking this site's Calendar of Events (and search for soccer) or the 2014 Regional Soccer Challenge Schedule. This way you can plan your Council and District Competitions.
3) When you have completed your local competition, make sure to submit the Supreme Soccer Participation Form. As with all forms, send a copy to your District Deputy and another to firstname.lastname@example.org.
4) Other forms to be sent depending on the Competition level. Send all these to the Youth Director for the Iowa Knights of Columbus:
