Elks Soccer Shoot


The Piscataway Elks Soccer Shoot Out was held on September 23rd. It was a well-attended event. The event was open to all children up to U16 (ages 15 & under), whether the child is currently in the Soccer Club or not. The Grand Lodge Youth Activities Committee of the Elks intends to bring every Elk State Association on board & increase participation in soccer on every level.  The Elks program includes a Local, District, State & Regional Shoot Out.  The Elks work with local Soccer Associations & recreation Departments to increase Elk participation.  The Soccer Shoot Out program consists of two different contests that test different level of skills at different ages.  Winners at our local Shoot Out & some of our 2nd & 3rdplace winners advanced on to the Elks District level.
