Kansas Soccer to Celebrate Youth Soccer Month at Jayhawk Invitational

Sept. 10, 2009


Kansas soccer will celebrate Youth Soccer Month during the Jayhawk Invitational on the weekend of Sept. 18-20. Kansas will host San Diego (Sept. 18, 5 p.m.) and South Dakota State (Sept. 20, 1 p.m.) at the tournament.

All youth soccer players wearing their team uniform or t-shirt will be admitted free of charge on both days, and be invited to participate in a free clinic following Sunday’s match. All youth wishing to participate in the clinic are asked to wear proper attire, especially athletic footwear.

Youth soccer players in attendance at that game will be invited to join the Jayhawks on the field for pre-game player introductions and the national anthem. Following Friday’s game KU student-athletes and coaches will be available to sign autographs.

Youth Soccer Month is an initiative of US Youth Soccer to educate the public about the rewards and benefits of playing youth soccer.

Regular general admission ticket pricing is $8 for adults and $5 for youth and senior citizens. Tickets may be purchased at the gate or in advance by calling 800-34-HAWKS or logging on to www.kuathletics.com.
