Every year we host family events with our players, parents, friends, and families...
For Easter day we have a breakfast pot luck. We bring soccer equipment and have a kids vs parents game. Kids love it! We have egg shells filled with confetti and crack them on the heads of participants. We play easter games and many soccer related games as well.
4th of July parade is our other event. Kids wear their Golden Goal Adidas jersey and dribble their soccer ball in front of thousands of spectators. Great moment of fame for them they've said. Coaches will have participants run drills for spectators to watch. Some chosen lucky kids will have the opportunity to boot a soccer ball into the crowd as a gift from Golden Goal SC. We end near the waterfront where we stay the rest of the day to enjoy the firworks at night.
Thanksgiving tradition Classic games! Early morning on Thanksgiving day we do everything we would do for Easter. Soccer equipment is brought out as well and we have our traditional Thanksgiving Turkey-Cup kids vs parents. Then we're off to cooking for Thanksgiving
Night out with the San Jose Earthquakes! Players have the awesome opportunity to walk out with professional Major League Soccer players held by the hand. Some have the opportunity to hold a huge flag at the middle of the filed, and others get the chance to be ball boys. Such a great experience for the kids. At the end of the game, kids get a chance to take pictures with pros and get autographs. Very memorable experience! This happens once a year with us.
