19th North American Sand Soccer Championships
When: June 8, 2012 until June 10, 2012, All Day
You’ll find colorful international teams parading to the sound on conga drums enroute incredible COOP U.S. OPEN Pro/Am matches, with cash prizes at stake; hundreds of youth teams aged 9 thru 19 battling on the beaches, men’s and women’s single gender squads, college teams, and even "corporate-coed" competitors from businesses and military organizations promoting health and fitness. The game, played on 25-35 or 30-40 yard grids, is 5v5 and fast-paced, with limited dribblin’ and laser shots on goal. Never fear, however, as brackets are seeded to support all levels of play - from the beginner to the most professional. Much like beach volleyball, sand soccer‘s rules are easy to pick up. Uniforms for this beach bash are "anything-goes".
