2014 Elks Soccer Shoot Competition
Statesboro-Bulloch Parks & Recreation will host an Elks Soccer Shoot Competition beginning at at Mill Creek Regional Park. Participants can sign up and compete anytime between 10am-noon.
The competition is free and open to boys and girls ages 6 to 13. Boys and girls will compete separately. Age classification is as of August 1, 2014. There will be no scheduled time for different age groups—as participants sign up, they will compete immediately after a warm up session, if needed. No pre-registration is necessary.
The Elks Soccer Shoot program consists of two different contests that test different level skills at different ages. A "Five Goal Contest" consists of a series of five goals, decreasing in size from 48 inches to 17 inches. The age groups that use these goals are divided into two categories, U-8 contains all ages seven years old and younger, and U-10 group contains ages eight and nine. The contest is open to boys and girls who shoot separately. The U-8 contestants kick from 15 feet from the face of the goal, while the U-10 contestants kick from 18 feet from the goal.
The Grid Goal Contest consists of a full-size goal sectioned off so points can be scored when the ball is kicked into certain sections. The age groups that use this goal are U-12, which contain the ages ten and eleven, and U-14, which contain ages twelve and thirteen.
First place winners will advance to the district competition to be held in November in Conyers.
