Before your Memorial Day get-togethers & BBQs start, come to the free, annual Memorial Day Soccer Game in remembrance of PFC Nick Madaras, who was Killed In Action in Iraq 2006.
With a passion for soccer and coaching, Nick believed a used soccer ball could make the world a better place for kids across the globe. Now, in addition to the 50,000-plus soccer balls sent to more than 50 different countries, we decided to bring Kick For Nick to our own backyard. In the fall of 2018, the Kick For Nick CT Soccer Academy was created with the goal of breaking the “Pay-to-Play” barrier.
KFN Academy provides professional training, coaches, fields, lights, and equipment to ALL kids K-12 for FREE! This year all proceeds go directly to KFN CT Soccer Academy with our proud sponsors, Curran VW & Weeks Pre-owned Automotive generously donating a $20,000 prize–$10,000 donated to KFN Academy in name of the winner, and $10,000 going directly to the winner. Bring one brand new soccer ball (size 4 or 5) for one raffle ticket (limit five per family–must be 18 years or older to enter).
Other fun prizes, concessions, and good company will be available as well! Please ask us to learn more about our KFN & KFN Academy programs, we are happy to share our mission. See you there!
