The KCEA soccer tournaments serve as an extracurricular support to reinforce on the athletic field what is being instilled in the classroom in the lives of student-athletes at affiliating schools: character, sportsmanship, and Christ-like attitude and behavior. Through this tournament, teams compete against other Christian schools in KCEA who have also registered to participate. If more than four teams register for a tournament (7-v-7 or 11-man), a playoff game is held at a neutral site during tournament week, with the winner advancing to the “final four” that weekend. Teams making it to the “final four” play both Friday and Saturday.
The KCEA soccer tournaments are typically held at a single host site, on the same dates in late October and at the same location as the volleyball tournaments. Participating schools and parents find this format to be mutually beneficial, as it allows students and spectators to support their team — or both teams — throughout the event. In recent years, games have been played under the lights Friday night, allowing for an extended schedule and also some great memories for the players.
