Santa Barbara Soccer Club Hosts Annual Summer Cup Tournament

More than 3,000 players and their families are expected to be in the area for this weekend's event.

Boys and girls ages 9 to 19 will converge on Santa Barbara on Saturday and Sunday to play in the area’s largest soccer event, the Santa Barbara Soccer Club’s Summer Cup 2008.

More than 200 teams from all over California, including some of the state’s top teams, will compete at venues across Goleta and Santa Barbara, including UCSB, SBCC, San Marcos High, Santa Barbara Junior High, La Colina Junior High, Mountain View Elementary, Isla Vista Elementary, Elings Park and Girsch Park.

“This will be the most successful tournament in the history of the club,” said Lloyd Biggs, coaching director for the club. “We’re excited to be hosting 3,000 kids and their families for a great weekend of soccer in Santa Barbara.”

Founded in 1991, the Santa Barbara Soccer Club is a nonprofit organization promoting youth soccer in the Santa Barbara area. The club has 27 teams serving more than 400 local boys and girls. Click here for more information.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
