PORTAGE SOCCER CLUB P. O. Box 1593 Portage, MI 49081-1593 www.portagesoccer.com

Dear Soccer Friends: Welcome to our 28th Annual Portage Soccer Classic Tournament. Our tournament is sanctioned by the United States Youth Soccer Association (USYSA) and features full length games in all age divisions (U8 to U19 for both boys and girls), a 3 referee system on all games (even for most U8, U9 and U10 games) and individual trophies for 1st and 2nd place teams. Our Tournament Headquarters is located at the Portage Soccer Complex, the premier nine field facility in Southwest Michigan. Together with the adjoining fields at SoccerZone and the Portage Soccer Club practice facility (Zylman Cox Fields), less than one mile away, all of your games will be at convenient locations. Our Tournament is made possible by the hardworking, dedicated, allvolunteer Tournament Committee with over 100 years of experience and counting. Additionally, the Portage Soccer Club provides over 250 volunteers who complete a wide variety of functions to improve your tournament experience. We greatly appreciate all the time and effort these volunteers give to make the Tournament a continued success. This welcome package includes helpful information such as a general overview of rules, a registration check list, our Pre-Order Apparel link, maps, lodging information and things to do in the area during the weekend. All the pre-order apparel shown in this package is available via our website at a discounted rate. Be sure to have your team members check it out, since it includes items which are only being made available via our online pre-order. We wish you the best of luck in your games and hope during this Father’s Day weekend, your tournament experience and time in our community create fond memories! Please pass this welcome package along to the rest of your team. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us or while at the tournament just look for any of our volunteers for assistance. Finally, please remember the games are for the players and we should all let good sportsmanship prevail. Sincerely; David Rice Tournament Director Portage Soccer Club President

Ken Pope Co-Tournament Director Portage Soccer Club VP Communications
