Each year, millions of kids strap on their shin guards and lace up
their cleats to play soccer. As the Official Retail Department Store sponsor of
US Youth Soccer, The Game for ALL Kids!, Kohl’s is a proud partner of the largest youth sports organization in the United States.
About US Youth Soccer
US Youth Soccer is a nonprofit and educational organization whose mission is to foster the physical, mental and emotional growth and development of America's youth through the sport of soccer at all levels of age and competition. Our job is also to make it fun, and instill in young players a lifelong passion for the sport.
US Youth Soccer is the largest member of the United States Soccer Federation, the governing body for soccer in the United States. US Youth Soccer has a nationwide body of over 600,000 volunteers and administrators, and over 300,000 dedicated coaches, most of whom also are volunteers! US Youth Soccer has over 3,000,000 registered youth players between the ages of five and nineteen and is made up of 55-member state associations; one in each state, and two in California, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Texas. US Youth Soccer programs provide a fun, safe and healthy environment for players at every level of the game.
US Youth Soccer Sponsorship Overview
For the past six years, Kohl’s has served as the Official Department Store sponsor of US Youth Soccer. Kohl’s is pleased to announce a two-year partnership extension with US Youth Soccer through 2010!
At the center of this partnership is the only national recreational property executed by US Youth Soccer, the Kohl's American Cup (KAC), a premier recreational youth soccer tournament hosted through US Youth Soccer State Soccer Associations throughout the country. The Kohl’s American Cup is a national, grassroots recreational soccer program that provides youth participants with the opportunity to experience a consistent and high- quality tournament in a fun, family-oriented atmosphere.
Additionally, Kohl's will continue to support the US Youth Soccer National Championship Series, the crown jewel of competitive youth soccer, at the regional and national levels, as well as supporting future US Youth Soccer opportunities to further the membership benefits of the association.
It is the Kohl's American Cup philosophy that all players should receive equal opportunities and benefits within their level of play. All players have the right to participate in competitions where they can develop and exhibit their skills while enjoying themselves. The Kohl's American Cup provides recreational players this opportunity and places emphasis on participation, as opposed to competition.
Kohl's feels that involving kids in sports is a great way for them to get the most out of life and the activity! The boundless memories, lessons, and values gained by participating in the Kohl's American Cup will develop a foundation for our nation's youth to excel both on and off the field!
