UA Kicks Cancer Soccer Tournament
The mens’s club soccer team and Akron Against Cancer held a charity tournament where all the proceeds went to the American Cancer Society. This was the second event like this as the women’s varsity soccer team held this same event last semester.
I got a chance to speak with assistant coach Josh Kay, who spoke about the event and how much money was raised. To this Josh said, “The event went great, the weather was a big factor in that. We raised nearly $500 after 10 teams had joined.”
In regards to whether this will be an occurring thing for semesters to come Josh said, “We are already planning for next semester. We had a chance to learn and look forward to improve based on the experience we gained from this event.”
To understand the club more, I asked Josh what the club team is about and how to join as a player or as part of the administration. Some of the benefits he listed included high competition levels, continuing to play soccer at a high level, and getting a chance to gain real world experience as an officer or coach.
The team labeled this event a success, and as mentioned look forward to hosting it once again next semester.
For the overall club, it is currently their offseason, but information on tryouts for anybody interested in a player or administrative role will be posted in the coming months.
If you want to contact the team about future events or for information on joining, you can email them at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, you can give them a follow or contact them on their twitter, @UAMensClubSoccer.
