Santa Barbara’s largest soccer event, the Santa Barbara Soccer Club‘s Summer Cup 2008, raised tens of thousands of dollars for SBSC’s Scholarship Fund.

As a result, more than 30 local youths will get the opportunity to play high-level competitive soccer and be trained by professional coaches.

In the event, 11 of SBSC’s teams made it to their age group finals, with five winning championships: Boys Under 10, Boys Under 13, Girls Under 13, Girls Under 15 and Girls Under 17. In addition to its own teams, the tournament brought more than 175 out-of-town teams and an estimated 5,000 players and parents to Santa Barbara for the weekend.

“I’d like to thank the players, parents, volunteers, sponsors and venues that made the Summer Cup a huge success,” coaching director Lloyd Biggs said. “The community support was incredible.”

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.

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!
