The US Youth Soccer Target United Cup provides recreational youth soccer players with an opportunity to experience a consistent, high quality tournament, in a fun family-like atmosphere. This program fosters stimulation and excitement about soccer in an effort to increase the recreational players’ interest in and love for the game.
The opportunity exists for the game of soccer to help mold a positive self-image by encouraging individual and team self-esteem. The Target United Cup program was initiated and organized to enhance the accomplishments of recreational players. The development of all players within US Youth Soccer is advanced when the player meets personal challenges. The Target United Cup is designed to encourage and honor the recreational player by allowing the player to compete for both team and personal goals. This tournament is structured so that, regardless of ability, all players can realistically strive for the goal of being a champion.
The Target United Cup philosophy rests in granting all players equal opportunities and benefits within their level of play in the sport of soccer. All players have the right to participate in the game in order to develop and exhibit their skills while enjoying themselves. The Target United Cup format provides recreational players with a developmental opportunity by emphasizing participation, as opposed to competition in a family-centered environment.
