What a great summer it has been so far for the U.S. Women's and Men's soccer teams. The Men are on a six-game winning streak, including wins over arch rivals Mexico, World Cup winners Germany, and third place team The Netherlands. I am sure I don't have to tell you how successful a summer that the Women's team have had. However, the first step for the superstars of today was to get into the sport in the first place. That isn't easy in many areas where pay to play is not possible. Two of those areas in the Philadelphia region are Camden and Kensington, and to raise funds they are hosting an adult, Co-ed 3v3 tournament.
The details of the event, and other ways you can help out are :-
Location - As with last year, the tournament will be hosted at the Camden High Playing fields, 1625 Vesper Boulevard, Camden, NJ 08103.
Date and Time - Sunday August 30th, starting at noon and going on until there is a winner (approximately 7 PM
Team Information - Teams can be all male, all female or a mix. There can be 3-5 players per team.

Sponsorship - We are looking to start getting sponsors for our tournament. This year, we are offering 2 different levels for sponsorship.
Level 1 - Mentions in all articles related to the tournament, as well as on Facebook and club websites. There will be a game day program that will list companies that are sponsors.
Level 2 - all of level 1 along with a banner to be displayed on the day, as well as in all trophy presentation photographs.
