The Knights of Columbus Soccer Challenge is a competition designed for players to demonstrate the most basic soccer skill – the penalty kick. The Soccer Challenge is open to all boys and girls in your community, ages 9-14. Age eligibility is determined by the age of the contestant as of September 1. Proof of age is required. Athletes in high school should be advised to check with their school athletic directors or their state high school athletic associations regarding possible eligibility conflicts.
Participants compete in their own age group by gender and will be given 3 practice shots then 15 penalty kicks at a goal with 5 scoring zones. Points will be awarded based on the scoring zone through which the ball passes. This event qualifies as a district event, so winners progress to the regional, state and international levels.
Ages 9, 10,11 (Boys & Girls Competitions):
Use a regulation-size soccer ball (size #4) and shoot 12 yards from the goal.
KofC ENTRY FORM is attached.
