ATLANTA (Oct. 15, 2013) The Atlanta BeltLine Partnership is partnering with Soccer in the Streets to hold the first Atlanta BeltLine Street Cup on Sunday, October 27 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at D.H. Stanton Park. Registrations will be held on a walk-up basis, and winning teams will receive medals.
Youth of all ages are invited to participate in this free, one-day tournament designed to use competition to test participants’ mastery of character traits such as teamwork, respect, sportsmanship, perseverance, and tolerance. Games are played with small teams in order to increase interaction, teams are created on the day of the event in order to promote diversity, and games are played without referees to reinforce positive conflict resolution techniques.
“The Atlanta BeltLine Street Cup is a component of the free health programming the Atlanta BeltLine Partnership is offering to engage the community in healthy, active lifestyles through partnerships with other health-centric organizations such as Soccer in the Streets,” said Atlanta BeltLine Program Director Rob Brawner. “We are excited to offer fun, exciting ways to get Atlantans moving.”
