Details: The Knights of Columbus Soccer Challenge is a competition designed for players to demonstrate the most basic of soccer skills – the penalty kick. Each player will be allowed 15 shots at the goal from the penalty line. The goal is divided into five scoring zones. The upper corners are 20 points, the lower corners 10, and the center is 5 points.
Eligibility: Boys and girls who are between the ages of 10 and 14 on September 1, 2013. The Soccer Challenge is offered in multiple locations, but each participant may only compete once. A parent or legal guardian’s signature is required.
Preparation: Participants may wear cleats or street shoes, and may take three practice kicks. A competition soccer ball is provided.
Judging: By members of the Bloomington Knights of Columbus. Judges’ decisions are final.
Winners: Each participant receives a personalized certificate. The top-scoring boy and girl of each age (10, 11, 12, 13, 14) receive a limited-edition soccer ball and advance to district playoffs 9 am – noon September 14 at Gene Kelly Playfield (104th & Nicollet). State finals are September 28 in Coon Rapids; champions receive a trophy and are published in Columbia magazine.
