About the Book

The book A Great Soccer Tournament is about a soccer team that plays at a tournament.

The tournament is held in upstate Michigan and the kids have all the excitement one can have. Between lots of fun, hard work, determination, and adventures, they will also experience the fun of playing on a typical chilly early morning, having car lights as the only source of showing them the dimensions of the field.

A Great Soccer Tournament is for all of those, children and adults, who love the game of soccer and who make a simple tournament a great one—filled with the best you can have in life: family, friends, the sharing of happiness, fun, and lessons you can keep forever.
