Never mind the World Cup, here comes the West Seattle Cup

Almost five months after Alki Elementary teacher Terry Kegel announced the plan for the West Seattle Cup – a communitywide celebration of soccer at the same time as the global attention for the World Cup – it’s days away! His latest update (including the video above):

The West Seattle Cup is finally here this weekend! In addition to the 420 child and parent participants, we are hoping to get as many fans there as possible. Games are played 8:45 am to 6:15 pm and there will be a special midday ceremony 11:45 am-12:15 pm on both days. We also need a few more volunteers to sign up. The event is all about community-building, so let’s get everyone out there to celebrate soccer, culture, and community!

The games are at High Point’s Walt Hundley Playfield – 34th/Myrtle.

    This project is amazing and no doubt will have a positive impact in many lives. Teaching our kids cultural differences and a way to relate, interact and get along is what will shape the future of our world. Thank you me Kegel for being an inspiration to many, me included.

    I agree the video is wonderful! Definitely worth watching and definitely worth supporting this weekend. I love the idea of bringing our community together through our children and play. 420 kids and parents – WOW!

Sorry, comment time is over.
