It’s time to gather your team of six players for the fourth annual Emily Johnson Play it Forward 3v3 Soccer Tournament. This year’s event takes place the weekend of June 8-10 at Gates Soccer Park, which is located on Colorado Mountain College’s Spring Valley campus in Glenwood Springs.

The annual tournament honors the passion of Emily Johnson, a Coal Ridge High School soccer player and captain who was tragically killed in an ATV accident in November 2008.

All proceeds support three scholarships given to local high school seniors in Johnson’s name.

Kicking off the weekend on Friday, June 8, will be the Emily Johnson Play it Forward All-Star Exhibition Game featuring 4A and 3A All-Western Slope League high school players. The boys will play at 5 p.m., with the girls following at 7 p.m.

The 3v3 tournament begins Saturday morning at 8 a.m. and continues through Sunday for U8 to U18 boys and girls teams as well as co-ed adult teams in both recreational and competitive divisions.

Register your teams today at http://www.EmilyJohnsonPlayitForward.org. The cost is $150 per team ($25 per player), which guarantees at least three games as well as a goodie bag and tournament T-shirt.

Refreshments will be available. There will be a silent auction Saturday morning.
