Update on @SDYouthSoccer with SDSSA President Rich Jensen

May 9, 2015 in Sioux Falls, SD – Soccer605 caught up with South Dakota Soccer Association President for an update on SDSSA activities and events – including the 2015 SoccerFest that is happening in Mitchell this weekend. Check out our interview with Rich below!

73 Soccer Teams Converge on Mitchell for 2015 Soccerfest.

The first big outdoor tournament of the year is about to take place and there will be fun and competition at three different levels.

Soccerfest 2015 kicks off with four games in the competitive division in Mitchell today, with the start of the State Cup tournament.  We will see action in the U-13 Girls division, the U-15 Boys division and the U-16 Boys division.

The Midcontinent Cup and Kohl’s American cup will take place on Saturday and Sunday, with teams competing in Classic, Recreational and Festival formats.

With a total of seventy-three teams (54 in Classic and Rec and 19 in State Cup), the Pepsi Complex fields will be busy.

Several programs are making a mark on the tournament this year.  For instance in the U-8 Boys Festival, there are six teams registered, with three of them from the Mitchell program.

Wessington Springs is making a splash in the U-10 Boys Rec division, supplying three of the six teams registered.

On the competitive side, it is much the same as most years, with five of the divisions (13B, 17B, 18G, 18B and 19G) going unchallenged.  Most brackets include teams from Dakota Alliance and Black Hills Rapids.  The Brookings FC/WYSA combined teams have provided a bright spot that keeps getting brighter with teams challenging in half of the age/gender groupings.

Our pick for the most exciting bracket at this year’s State Cup?  The U-13 Girls Division!  The Black Hills Rapids 13s were competitive in this age group last year as 12s, the Hub City girls are a very organized, hard-playing lot and of course the DASC 13s will be well-coached and playing nice soccer.  Hub City and Dakota Alliance play today at 5:00 pm on Field 1.

 

Karlie Mueller talks about Texas A&M, NCAA championship tournaments and what it takes to be competitive at the top levels.

One of our favorite things to do around Soccer605 is visit with players who grew up here and went on to do something impressive.  There are plenty of players who we need to catch up with this spring and summer.  But today we have Karlie Mueller, the South Dakota phenomenon who has played for Texas A&M, has appeared with the US Women’s National U-20 team and who has the final four national NCAA women’s tournament still fresh in her memory.  We hope girls all over Soccer605 land will pay close attention to what Karlie has to say.  In our opinion, there are few players who are better to learn from.  Here is our interview with Karlie.
