What: Capitol Hill Soccer Jam to Benefit Seattle Street Soccer
When: Saturday May 25, 2013, starting at 10am
Where: Seattle University Campus, on Capitol Hill in Seattle
I think that Seattle Street Soccer is a great idea. In their own words:
Street Soccer Seattle is a non-profit program dedicated to supporting and empowering young adults who have been affected by homelessness. At our core, we organize soccer teams for players from Seattle’s shelters, streets, and transitional housing programs….Street Soccer Seattle then uses this team platform to create a training curriculum of job preparation, life skills, and other specialized services, ultimately connecting participants directly to jobs, education, and housing.
Sounds like a good idea right? And what could make more sense in soccer-crazy Seattle? Actually, Seattle Street Soccer is part of Street Soccer USA , a nationwide program helping street kids in over 20 cities.
The Capitol Hill Soccer Jam is a fundraiser for Seattle Street Soccer organized by a group of graduate students at Seattle University. This round robin tournament is open to all teams of 4 players, for players over 15 years of age. Teams pay a registration fee to participate and the proceeds from the event will all go to support the great programs of Seattle Street Soccer.
OK Hotshot, get your team together!
