On Thursday the 1st of December, 2016, the fifth annual Copa De Carlsbad was held at Sage Creek High School. The event is a one day tournament with group play, semis and finals, and features all of the Carlsbad Elementary schools. Since its inception, LAGSD has assisted the community event by setting up the fields, providing the equipment/balls, providing the refs and having club coaches attend and help at the event.
“The Copa de Carlsbad soccer event allows the nine Carlsbad Elementary schools to compete in an action packed one day tournament,” said LAGSD Board Member & AOE Eagles volunteer coach Ryan Gold. “The competitive nature and school spirit of both the boys and girls teams within the district has flourished due to this fun, one day event. Students, teachers, administrators, and parents come out to support and cheer on their respective schools. The quality of play is absolutely incredible. The number of LAGSD players participating, from both our competitive and recreational programs, is amazing and it is a nice touch that LAGSD can step in and help in such a big way with this fantastic event!”
