Soccer Olympics Details

Soccer Olympics will be located on Fields 1-4 at Scottsdale Sports Complex. Team must checkin prior to the start time listed below. 

Each individual team is responsible for bringing:

  • 5 soccer balls 
  • 1-2 parent volunteers who will check in the team, collect scorecards, and stay with the team throughout the duration of that team's Soccer Olympics schedule. Soccer Olympics checkin is located at the HQ tent between fields 1-4. 

Parents at check in will receive an event scorecard that will instruct them on which events they need to attend, what heats they are in, where to report, and at what times. These parents will stay with their team for the duration of Soccer Olympics. Each event is 20 minutes with a 20 minute break between. Each event is worth 25 points and teams will score those points based on their results.

Teams will be competing against their own age groups and are HIGHLY encouraged to wear anything they like to show team spirit - must be appropriate. Winning teams for each age group will score a prize from Jimmy John's or Lou Malnati's Pizza. Each event is worth 25 points.  Teams can participate in soccer olympics regardless of the number of players participating for their team. 

Field #1 - Dribbling Contest
Teams will be divided up evenly between heats and each team will have 6 players dribbling. The RSL AZ Representative on the field will announce the heats. Be sure to pay attention to these announcements. Teams will participate in one heat with 6 players. Each player will dribble through the length of the lane with a ball. At the end of the lane they will pass the ball to the next player who will then repeat the same until all 6 players have gone. The RSL AZ Representative on the field will judge how teams finish. 


  • 1st place will be awarded 25 points
  • 2nd place will be awarded 20 points
  • 3rd place will be awarded 15 points
  • 4th place and on will be awarded 10 points


Field #2 - Penalty Shootout
 Teams will be divided up into pairs and 5 penalties per team will be taken. While teams will compete against each other, teams will be awarded points per penalty converted. Meaning a team can make 3 penalties, lose the shootout, and still be awarded 15 points (5 points per converted penalty).


  • Each goal is worth 5 points (max is 25 points)

Field #3 - Soccer Shuffleboard
Teams will be competing against themselves. Each team will have 5 players attempting one kick. The ball must stop within one of the four scoring areas that go as follows - 30, 20, 10, 5. After all five kicks have been attempted, the score will be added up and points will be based on the score.


  • 150-125 points - 25 points
  • 124-100 points - 20 points
  • 99-75 points - 15 points
  • 74-50 points - 10 points
  • 49-0 points - 5 points

Field #4 - Trivia Contest
The RSL AZ Representative will stay in the middle of the center circle. Teams will gather around the center circle and select one player representative to collect the questions which they will bring back to their teams. The entire team will have 20 minutes to answer the five questions. Upon completion, the team player representative will return their answers for review. 


  • Each correct answer is worth 5 points
