Knights of Columbus plans youth soccer challenge

The Knights of Columbus group is organizing a soccer challenge Aug. 17, rain or shine, at the North Branch Middle School soccer fields.

Registration for the event is 9:30-10 a.m., followed by the competition at 10 a.m.

Girls and boys ages 10-14 will be the participants; they are required to furnish proof of age and written parental consent.

This is a free event.

Participants will be given 15 consecutive penalty kicks at a soccer goal, with no goalie, which has been divided into five zones with different point values. Winners will be determined by the total number of points scored.

Champions will advance to Districts in September, and winners of Districts then advance to the State Soccer Challenge Competition in October.
