Coca-Cola offers teen soccer fans the chance to score big in three-day training camp
Soccer superstar Marcelo Balboa and Olympic gold medal winner Shannon MacMillan will join a team of 20 international soccer coaches at the inaugural Coca-Cola Soccer Camp. Held November 16-18 at Tony Marron Park in Houston, the three-day camp will include soccer training and skills demonstrations as well as several workshops and scrimmages in the spirit of friendly competition.
The Coca-Cola Soccer Camp is open to boys and girls 13 to 15 years of age who are residents of the state of Texas. Teens are encouraged to submit an essay from now until October 4 describing their passion for soccer. Contestants may also be nominated by a friend, teacher or family member. For official rules and to submit entries, please visit mcr.com/soccercamp. Entries will be judged based on relevance, authenticity, inspirational value, and creativity of their submission. Winners will be announced the week of October 22.
“The Coca-Cola Company has long been a supporter of sports at every level- from grassroots youth teams to National and Olympic teams. We believe that active healthy living should be an integrated part of every teen’s life, and the best way to get kids moving is through fun, engaging programs like our Soccer Camp,” said Hector Amaya, Houston Market Unit Vice President, Field Operations, Coca-Cola Refreshments. “By bringing the Coca-Cola Soccer Camp to our communities we enable younger generations to uncap their potential and get active on the field, no matter what their skill level.”
Partnering with the beverage leader and primary contributors to the Soccer Camp are: McDonald’s, adidas, retailer Food Town, US Youth Soccer (USYSO), and Boys & Girls Clubs of America.
Shannon MacMillan and Marcelo Balboa invite all soccer fans to participate and support the Coca-Cola Soccer Camp winners by sharing their stories and images of soccer happiness on Twitter using the hashtag #CokeCamp.
