North American Sports Group and AAU Team Up
Kick It 3v3 Soccer to Run Event
North American Sports Group, the owner and operator of Kick
It 3v3 Soccer, has partnered with the AAU Junior Olympic Games to feature some
of the nation’s best youth soccer players this summer.
The 3v3 soccer competition at the AAU Junior Olympic Games will
be operated by Kick It 3v3 Soccer, the country’s premier 3v3 soccer tour.
The AAU Junior Olympic Games will be held in Des Moines, Iowa and the 3v3
soccer games will be played on August 1 and 2. The event features boys
and girls in age groups ranging from 5-19 years old.
“The AAU is excited to partner with Kick It and the North
American Sports Group. We look forward
to a long term relationship,” stated Henry Forrest, AAU President and CEO. “The 3v3 soccer event will be a great
addition to the AAU Junior Olympic Games.”
3v3 soccer is a growing sport that features fast-paced play
with no goalies. Players improve their skills rapidly through increased
touches and by working with teammates in a small field environment.
The AAU Junior Olympic Games began in 1967 and now include 20
different sports. The Games include participants from all 50 states and
several United States territories. The AAU is one of the nation’s largest
non-profit, volunteer sports organizations.
“The AAU Junior Olympic Games has a nationwide reach. The North American Sports Group’s experience
in operating first-class tournaments will be an asset to our event and
athletes,” said Paul Campbell, AAU Junior Olympic Games Chair.
“Kick It 3v3 Soccer is a national presence in 3v3 soccer and
we’re pleased to work together with the AAU Junior Olympic Games to showcase
many of the best young soccer players in the country,” said Rob Thompson,
managing partner of the North American Sports Group. He added, “the AAU
is synonymous with excellence in youth athletics and we’re excited to be a part
of the festivities in Des Moines.”
