Thank you to all of our attendees, volunteers, staff, sponsors, and of course Carli Lloyd for making this an amazing event for everyone. We have received a number of kudos and Thank You's and we greatly appreciate your participation and support in making this event so special.
When we see more kids in the South Shore outside playing, juggling, kicking the ball against a wall, and practicing whatever it is that they love to do, we will have a good guess at what inspired them!

Carli Lloyd, reigning FIFA World Player of the Year, 2015 World Cup Champion, and 2x Olympic Gold Medalist is coming to the South Shore of Massachusetts on September 1, 2016! You and your family can be part of it by purchasing tickets on this page!
The event will take place at Silver Lake High School in Kingston, MA. Carli will talk about growing up in a small blue-collar neighborhood in New Jersey and almost quitting the game of soccer. She was struggling in 2003 and her soccer career was at a crossroads. Then she found a trusted trainer, James Galanis, who saw in Carli a player with raw talent, skill, and great dedication to the game. What Carli lacked were fitness, mental toughness, and character. Together they set to work, training day and night, fighting, and grinding it out. Despite the naysayers, the times she was benched, moments when her self-confidence took a nosedive, she succeeded in becoming one of the best players in the world. It is a story that you and your kids won’t want to miss!
A portion of the proceeds from this event will be donated to a scholarship fund in Roman Ranocha’s name. Roman was an amazing husband, father, friend, and dedicated member of the South Shore Select Soccer community. He unexpectedly and tragically passed away on August 7, 2016. This scholarship fund is in his honor and will support soccer players and families in need.
