Each year for the past few years, the fantastic folks at the Hudson-Concord Elks Club and Elks Clubs throughout the state have put on a Soccer Shoot, where local soccer players compete for soccer shot accuracy. The players compete at the town level and the winners then compete at the district and the state level.
Randy Carter of Hudson Elks and a past HYSA past president shares, “We would like to thank the HYSA organization and all the volunteer parents, players and coaches that helped Hudson Youth Soccer and the Hudson Elks to make this another great Soccer Shoot event. This year’s competition was a great success and showed a lot of talent from the Hudson shooters. Congratulations again to all the players, parents and coaches.”
This year, we had over 50 HYSA players competing in the Hudson-Concord Elks Soccer Shootout on September 26, 2021. The top 3 finishers for boys and girls in each age group received medals (full results below) and the top competitor in each age group advanced to the District competition. A big congratulations to all our local soccer players in demonstrating their terrific shooting skills.
