The Marco Island Soccer Club (aka Surge) is kicking off its spring season with a Live 3v3 Tournament on Saturday, May 3, at Mackle Park.
“The Marco Island tournament is going to be a great opportunity for our kids to get out and play, as well as an introduction to families who haven’t experienced the fun atmosphere of 3v3 soccer yet,” said tournament organizer Patrick Baldwin, vice president of the Marco Island Soccer Club. “We are expecting 40-plus teams from the area, including adult teams, to compete, which will be great for generating business for hotels and restaurants during the off-season month of May.”
Currently, registration is open for Surge players U6-U14. Parents and coaches also are invited to form teams to compete. During the 3v3 off-season, the club applied to join the Florida Youth Soccer Association and the Southwest Florida Soccer Association, which opens up the opportunity to create 6v6 and 8v8 teams as well.
Additionally, the club is grooming the next generation of soccer players with a new “Little Kickers” spring program geared towards three-, four- and five-year-old boys and girls interested in playing soccer.
“The sport of soccer continues to grow on the Marco Island. Its one of the few sports both boys and girls can play and have fun at an early age,” explained Chadd Chustz, president of the Marco Island Soccer Club. “We continue to get a lot of positive feedback from both kids and parents on Marco Island supporting our year around soccer programs.”
