GSI Sports proudly celebrates its 18th year hosting the Sporting Club 3v3 Classic at Stump Park Soccer Complex in Shawnee, Kansas. We are very excited that teams who will play at the 3v3 tournament will get to watch the
Swope Park Rangers play against the Rio Grande Valley FC team at Swope Park Village at 7:30pm!
Swope Park Village is only 30 minutes from the fields, spend the day playing in this action packed 3v3 tournament and head to the game with your friends and team mates! Each 3v3 team will receive 7 complimentary tickets to the game, 6 for the players and 1 for the coach, additional tickets can be found at SeatGeek!
With fewer players on the field, each player has more opportunities to touch the ball, using and improving their soccer skills. Small-sided games can develop your player's decision-making, technical attributes, tactical knowledge and physical conditioning through functional movements. Small-sided soccer is FUN and allows more opportunities to score. Scoring can increase self-esteem, character development and team chemistry!
Here are some of the benefits of playing 3v3:
More touches on the ball
Increased number of game related decision-making opportunities
Constant transition from attacking to defensive situations
Increased 1 vs. 1 encounters in both attacking and defending situations
Increased opportunities to utilize specific ball skills
Increased opportunity to be in a goal scoring position
Increased opportunities to be in a 2 vs. 1 attacking and defending situation
Hotel Reservations Procedure
GSI has established the following procedure regarding tournament hotel reservations
A condition of acceptance requires every “out of town” team to utilize one of the sanctioned hotels and book the rooms through Global Connections Inc. (GCI) using their online request system at www.GCITeamTravel.com. Global Connections has worked closely with the local hotels and has secured the best rates possible for this event. Outstanding properties will be available at affordable prices. Various options will also be available to satisfy team needs and all budgetary considerations.
A team failing to utilize Global Connections will not be permitted to participate in the tournament.
ALL teams traveling to participate in the tournament can designate a team representative to make the entire team’s request, or team members may do their own individually online at www.GCITeamTravel.com. GCI has secured tournament room blocks at reduced rates from a wide range of hotels to suit the needs of all participating teams.
