The Cleveland Kickers Soccer Club (CKSC) is making its fourth appearance at Target USA CUP this July at the National Sports Center. The club is made up of 12 teams total; six boys teams and six girls teams. This year, a total of 42 players will be traveling from the U13, U15, and U17 girls teams. The Kickers’ U14 boys team won the tournament in 2014, so the club is hoping to repeat that success this year.
In addition to playing soccer, club’s favorite part of USA CUP is the various social activities, especially Opening Ceremonies.
Owner and Director of Coaching Thomas Clark is a former player in USA CUP from years 1987 and 1988. He explained how much he and his team love playing in the tournament. “We have been to many tournaments and showcases, but the atmosphere at USA CUP is something that cannot be duplicated,” Clark said. “We’re very excited to be back.”
We’re excited to have you back, CKSC!
