Event Description: The TSA PK Shootout is a competition designed for 2016/17 registered TSA players and coaches to demonstrate the most basic of soccer skills – the penalty kick (PK). Each participant will be allowed 10 shots at the goal from a designated penalty spot (ranging from 12 to 36 feet based upon the age group). The first 8 shots will be recorded as the base score with the remaining 2 shots only used in the event of a tied score. The score of each participant will be tallied and winners will be decided at the end of the night based upon the specific age and gender. Winners need not be present.

Scoring: Participants aged 4 and 5 will shoot into an open U6 goal. Goals made will be 1 point. Goals missed will be 0 points. For ages 6 and up the goal will be divided into a series of five scoring zones. The upper corners of the goal will be designated as 20 point zones. The lower corners will be designated as 10-point zones and the central region is a 5-point zone. To score the competition, each participant will be given 10 penalty kicks. Points will be awarded depending upon the area of the scoring zones through which the ball passes. Normal rules of soccer regarding penalty kicks apply for all levels of competition. Penalty kick violations to include any contact made with the ball counts as a kick. Designated scorers will record shots made and missed on each participants PK scoring sheet.

Designated Winners: All participants aged 4 – 14 will be provided a participation prize. First and Second place winners per age group and per gender will be determined and trophy/Medal will be awarded to these winners. Adult winners will be awarded Medals and or Gift Cards.

Bubba’s II Seafood and Restaurant & Sports Lounge will be providing a menu of Seafood Gumbo, French Fries, Chicken Fries, and Cheese Nachos at great prices as a fundraiser for TSA.

TSA will offer a concession stand with snacks and drinks for sale.
