Giving Cancer the Boot Day

As most of you know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Many families have been directly impacted by this disease in our soccer community and the world at large. As a League, we have a unique opportunity to foster conversations with our youth about its impact and to educate them. In an effort to help support the American Cancer Society’s efforts, we are again hosting the "Give Cancer the Boot" Day at the Callaway Soccer Fields.

Everyone is encouraged to wear pink. We want to respect the integrity of the scheduled soccer games but players can wear any pink they would like, as long as it meets the rule requirements for games (ie, no jewelry, hard headbands, etc.). Team Jerseys or Shirts must be the same color but player socks, shorts, shoes, etc. can all be different and any shade of pink they'd like to wear. Coaches are being asked to wear all pink and look as crazy as they'd like!! In turn, the League is going to turn our fields bright with pink!!

Additionally, our newest partner, AutoNation Ford will be at the fields supporting our efforts. Ford has been “Putting the Brakes” on Cancer for 25 years. They continue to kick off breast cancer awareness month with “DRIVE PINK” and are dedicated to helping those touched by breast cancer. Make sure to stop by their Tent by Field #8 after your game. Players in uniform will receive a free gift from Callaway Soccer and AutoNation Ford, while supplies last.

This should be a very exciting Game Day and we hope everyone enjoys the special surprises Callaway Soccer has in store for our 3RD OFFICIAL "Give Cancer the Boot" Day. Let's lend our hearts to those who have lost so much to this horrible disease and show our support for those still fighting!!

See you on the Pitch in your BEST PINK!!

Thank you,
Coach Amber & Coach Brent
