Participants will receive points based on their performance of the six different soccer skills: Toe Taps; Foundations; Juggling (right and left foot); and Dribbling (right and left foot).The top-scorers, a boy and girl from each age group, will be awarded a trophy at the end of the event. All participants will receive a souvenir scorecard for their efforts as well as a two month iSoccer Plus membership. Local winners will be invited to participate in the Detroit Regional Finals (the FC Force Invitational) to be held September 21-23 in Bloomfield Hills, MI to compete again for a trophy and other prizes.
In addition to the soccer challenges, Brown Motors will be displaying the all-new 2013 Ford Escape in a dedicated vehicle display space during the entire soccer skills program and Dealer representatives will be on hand to answer consumer questions. Parents/legal guardians of participants may enter for a chance to win a two-year lease of the 2013 Escape, Ford’s newest smart and green compact crossover vehicle. (no purchase necessary – complete rules at: www.fordescapesoccerskillschallenge.com/findevent). A winner will be randomly selected Fall 2012.
