Shodair Soccer Classic kicks off in Helena

HELENA - The Shodair Soccer Classic kicks off its thirteenth season this week in Helena. The event begins mid-week with activities for players, and culminates with the women's and men's games on Saturday, July 28, at 5:00 and 7:00 p.m. respectively, at Nelson Stadium on the Carroll College campus.
Montana's 2012 Children's Miracle Network Hospitals Champion, Samantha Faulkner from Ulm, will assist in the presentation of the Montana State Fund MVP awards, along with television sports personality Evan Weborg from Montana's News Station. Admission is free; programs featuring player photos and information will be available for purchase.
The Classic features top student athletes from high schools all across the state. Through a rigorous screening process, over 70 outstanding young men and women are selected to play in the annual event. In addition to having been selected as All-State and All-Conference high school players in Class AA or A, they have demonstrated academic achievement, leadership, and citizenship. The Classic also brings together a talented coaching staff from around the state to guide the teams and assure top-level competition.
The Soccer Classic is a benefit for Shodair Children's Hospital and the important work it does for Montana's youth. Shodair provides psychiatric services for children and adolescents from communities throughout the state, as well as comprehensive genetic services for people of all ages. Last year, the hospital provided more than $3.5 million dollars in uncompensated care for at-risk children and youth from around the state. Support generated from events like the Soccer Classic and the Children's Miracle Network Telethon help assure that these services remain available for Montana families in need of help.
