South Bronx United will host its annual college showcase soccer tournament and educational symposium for student-athletes on March 24-26. The three-day event provides strong competition, exposure to college soccer recruitment, and information on college access for youth soccer teams and players from the New York metropolitan area and beyond. Particular emphasis is given towards providing inner city and minority youth, who are underrepresented in higher education and college soccer, a platform to reach college. 100 girls and boys teams, U15-U19, are expected to come to Randalls Island for the event, along with more than 80 college coaches. The City Showcase is a partnership between South Bronx United and Downtown United Soccer Club. Teams and college coaches can register now at cityshowcasetournament.org.
