Event Day Schedule

11:00am -12:00pm Playmakers arrive

Have the kids have some free time to loosen up and get ready. This will help socialize with other Playmakers. Coaches will get to walk around and greet other schools. This will help make the kids more comfortable not only with their coach, but also other coaches. Reinforce our FAMILY values.

12:15pm: Playmakers Stretch

Stretch lines. Every coach is responsible to have his or her own school ready to compete. Make sure your kids know this is a competition, but we must display good Character and Sportsmanship at all times. Coaches remember we will be asking students to shout out our Character Curriculum.

12:30pm: Coaches introduction

We will group up all the Playmakers and have a guest speaker talk to the student (ex: Pastor, Coach Roz & etc).

Coach Anthony goes over all the rules and the standards we will be holding

12:45pm: Event #1 — Soccer Tournament

There will be 3 games going on at once with small goals. Each team will consist of 5 players, three boys and two girls. There can be more girls than that, but teams cannot have more than 3 boys. The game will consist of two 10-minute halves with running clocks. There will also be a five-minute break in between the halves.

Soccer Rules and Scoring

Only the 3 winners of the games will earn points for their team. The team that had the most goals scored will earn 3 points for their team. The second team with the most points will earn 2 points for their team. The 3rd team that won will earn 1 point for their school. The school that decides to not participate in this event will automatically get 1 point. Ties will be decided by penalty kicks.

3 Playmakers from each campus will participate in this event (2 Boys max).  The routes ran would be the corner, post, slant, and seam. We can have 4 coaches throwing at the kids in each different pass. If the kid catches the ball, they get one point for this event. Every kid gets 3 tries at each route. The school with the most catches combined will get 3 points for their school, second place gets 2 points, and third place gets 1 point.

2:00pm: Event #4 — Free throw competition

One boy and one girl will represent each school. Each kid will get 30 seconds to try to make as many free throws as possible. Both scores will be added to come with a school grand total.
