SCSA is Seeking Sponsors for Mid America Cup, May 31 - June 1

Our end-of-season tournament will celebrate its third year out at Southlakes and we are excited to be offering partnership opportunities to friends of our soccer community! If you know of a business who has been wanting to get in front of thousands of soccer fans, please let them know of this opportunity. 

The sponsorships have been designed to cater to specific groups on the weekend of our tournament, specifically COACHES, TEAMS, REFEREES & FAMILIES/FANS.  We think this is a great chance for any local or national business to market their products or services while helping SCSA raise money for future complex improvements. Our tournament hosts 80-100 teams this weekend, bringing around 4,000 people to our complex over two days.

SCSA will see a changing of the guard in our Director of Officials position this Spring.

While Wichita is home and a place I love dearly, especially the Wichita soccer community, the opportunity to coach at an NCAA university in Southern California was an opportunity I needed to pursue." It has been a pleasure having Lebaron as part of our team at SCSA and we wish him all the best. 

Chris Hall, who has has been involved with soccer for many years, has been appointed as SCSA's new Director of Officials.  Chris has been playing soccer since he was 5 and still plays as an adult whenever possible.  He has officiated indoor soccer for over 10 years, USSF and high school soccer for 8 years, and collegiate soccer for 7 years. He is also the facility manager at Sports Zone indoor soccer complex.

Chris will be at the fields on the weekends and looks forward to meeting the referees and coaches. Please don't hesitate to introduce yourself and ask questions.  Chris can also be contacted at doo.scsa@gmail.com.
