Thank You

All of us on the Strawberry Soccer Invitational Committee thank you for participating in our event. Saturday was brisk, but Sunday was a perfect day for soccer. While some of our players experienced injuries, we were blessed with a lower number of injuries than normal.

Congratulations to all 49 division champions and finalists. We hope to post a few photos from the different awards presentations from this year. We experiment with different awards each year – but we may need to keep this year’s design based on the almost unanimously positive feedback we received at the awards stand. If you have a photo of your child wearing this year’s award, we’d love to see it posted here.

Later today we will meet to draw the winner of the Ashley Plumb Sportsmanship Gift Certificate from Soccer Plus and will recognize the winner here.

Thanks also to all of you who brought in gently used soccer gear and equipment for our USYSA Passback program. We’ll spend the next few days organizing everything that was dropped off at our sites before distribution.

We enjoyed seeing all of the teams play this weekend and hope to see you again next year. Enjoy the re

2016 Passback Program Announcement

Are your closets filled with old cleats, shin guards and uniforms?


Your gently used equipment may help someone else play for the first time!

Donation bins will be set up at all sites of the tournament from Friday to Sunday to collect your new and gently used equipment.  All equipment will then be donated to local youth organizations that are in need of equipment so they can play the game we all love!

For more information on this collection, please contact Holland Lively at or for more information on the Passback Program please visit

Share the Equipment.  Share the Game!
