Beach Soccer Tournament
Circus Mexicus Beach Soccer @ Wrecked at the Reef Saturday June 9th, 2012 beginning at 8am!
Registration will begin MONDAY MARCH 26 at www.peacetimegoods.com . The tournament is sure to sell out again, so get your team organized and committed NOW to join us for another great day on the beach playing the Beautiful Game! Don’t have a team but want to play? Find teams who need players and players who need teams at http://www.facebook.com/circusmexicus .
Games will continue to be played Co-ed with 5 players per side including goal keepers with unlimited substitutions. Each side will field a 60/40 mix of genders at all times during play. (That is, at least 2 gals must be on the pitch during game play.) Cost is $25 per player and includes an Adidas team jersey and donation to the Larry D Large Foundation benefitting children in Puerto Penasco. www.larrydlargefoundation.org
As we did last year, ALL players and fans are encouraged to bring any equipment (balls, soccer shoes, guards, jerseys, nets, etc) to benefit the Youth Sports Foundation of Puerto Penasco. Last year, your donations helped send 4 Penasco teens from Rocky Point to a soccer camp in Guadalajara hosted by college coaches inside Estadio Omnilife, home to world famous Chivas de Guadalajara. http://www.facebook.com/pages/Youth-Sports-Foundation-of-Puerto-Penasco/112430188845882
We’d like to thank this year’s sponsor,
Young Builders Roofing, www.YoungBuilders.com
for their support of this year’s tournament!
We’ve made a couple of changes to Rock and Soccer:
We’ve made team size-limits much larger this year. So if you’d like to play, but can’t stay all day (or plan on having some cervezas and a siesta sometime during the tourney), or maybe you just dig the jerseys, sign up and stay to play just as long as you like.
This year, to ensure fun and safety for all players, we have included the following divisions, each offering awards to finalists.
¡División Golazo! – For those who play soccer, who have some years experience in the game, or who actively maintain an athletic lifestyle, we recommend this division. Each team may register up to 12 players, minimum 8. There will be 4 teams in ¡Div. Golazo!
¡División Divertida! -For those who haven’t played in awhile and just want step on the beach and get some kicks in, we recommend this division. Each Team may register as many players as they wish, minimum 8. There will be 8 teams in ¡Div. Divertida!
¡División Jovenes!– Just before the Championship games in front of a big crowd and live rock n roll by La Merca, we’ll have 3 youth games open to all kids who want to play. There is no charge. Make sure they have socks, the sand will be warm by then.
If there are enough registrants, young enthusiasts will play in the following flights:
• U10 (8 to 10 years of age)
• U13 (11 to 13 years of age)
• U15 (14 and 15 years of age)
All youth players must be registered by (on-site, 6/9) and accompanied by a parent or guardian. There will be no uniforms in ¡Div. Jovenes!; teams will be issued scrimmage vests (pinnies).
Teams may register at www.peacetimegoods.com beginning March 26 as a complete team (min. 8 players) with total team payment, roster names, team name and jersey sizes. Teams may add players to the roster for $25 each (up to 12 in Div. Golazo; unlimited # in Div. Divertida) after the team has registered and paid for 8 players.
Deadline for complete rosters and payment is Friday, April 27th or when the tournament sells out (whichever comes first). The tournament is limited to a total of 12 Adult teams. Make sure you sign up as soon as possible; registration begins Monday, MARCH 26TH!
All registrations are final because jerseys must be ordered and printed.
We 'd like to extend a huge "Gracias" to Adidas for their support again this year. All the squads will look great playing the Beautiful Game.
Each team assumes the responsibility for maintaining a full roster.
All players especially those looking to hook up with a team are encouraged to join the Circus Mexicus Facebook Page http://www.facebook.com/#!/circusmexicus as soon as possible.
¡Viva Fútbol! ¡Viva Rock! ¡Viva Circus Mexicus!
