Kings Hammer Wraps Up April Event Series

What a great month for tournaments here at Kings Hammer! This past month, we held one of our biggest events of the year, Men’s and Women’s Blue Chip Showcase. We want to give a huge thank you to all of the college programs who came out to participate this year. We also had several teams travel to Murfreesboro, TN early this month to take part in Bash in the Boro at the Richard Siegel Soccer Complex.

We want to say “Thank You” to all of the teams, coaches, volunteers and staff that participated in this month’s events. It was a month to remember!

With April behind us, Kings Hammer is looking forward to these upcoming spring events:

Crown Challenge– May 10th-12th, 2024 (Cincinnati, OH) Troy Strawberry Soccer Classic– May 18th-19th, 2024 (Troy, OH) Memorial Day Festival– May 25th-26th, 2024 (Westfield, IN)

Kings Hammer Players take on ECNL Phoenix

There were lots of eyes on our ECNL Girls teams earlier this month as they traveled out to the Grand Canyon State to take part in the ECNL Phoenix Showcase. We are always delighted to see the way these girls show up and support each other. Cheers to an awesome weekend in Arizona, ladies!

April Education: Managing Tryout Season

With tryouts and team formation upon us, there is a great deal of anxiety, stress, and emotions brewing for players, parents, and coaches. Our friends at Soccer Parenting have put together several resources to help all of us address, and hopefully handle this part of the youth soccer landscape with a little more success. You can watch them below.

Be sure to share throughout the spring season and YOU could be selected for our Kings Hammer Save of the Month!
