This showcase will connect high school players with college coaches enabling the players to get a skill rating to use in recruiting, learn about the athletic scholarship recruiting process from a college coach, and get information on academic scholarships. The event is a fundraiser for the West High Indoor Team and Soccer For Siouxland which is building soccer fields in Sioux City Parks to promote the sport among young people in our community.
Soccer for Siouxland is committed to creating free places to play soccer in Sioux City, IA. The project is lead by a group of high school students. Working in partnership with the city of Sioux City this group is raising money and volunteering to provide soccer fields in neighborhood parks with the goal of promoting physical activity and reducing gang involvement by providing a better alternative for young people in this community.
