North American Sports Group and AAU Team Up

North American Sports Group, the owner and operator of Kick It 3v3 Soccer, has partnered with the AAU Junior Olympic Games to feature some of the nation’s best youth soccer players this summer.  

The 3v3 soccer competition at the AAU Junior Olympic Games will be operated by Kick It 3v3 Soccer, the country’s premier 3v3 soccer tour.  The AAU Junior Olympic Games will be held in Des Moines, Iowa and the 3v3 soccer games will be played on August 1 and 2.  The event features boys and girls in age groups ranging from 5-19 years old.  

“The AAU is excited to partner with Kick It and the North American Sports Group.  We look forward to a long term relationship,” stated Henry Forrest, AAU President and CEO.  “The 3v3 soccer event will be a great addition to the AAU Junior Olympic Games.”

3v3 soccer is a growing sport that features fast-paced play with no goalies.  Players improve their skills rapidly through increased touches and by working with teammates in a small field environment.

The AAU Junior Olympic Games began in 1967 and now include 20 different sports.  The Games include participants from all 50 states and several United States territories.  The AAU is one of the nation’s largest non-profit, volunteer sports organizations.

“The AAU Junior Olympic Games has a nationwide reach.  The North American Sports Group’s experience in operating first-class tournaments will be an asset to our event and athletes,” said Paul Campbell, AAU Junior Olympic Games Chair.

“Kick It 3v3 Soccer is a national presence in 3v3 soccer and we’re pleased to work together with the AAU Junior Olympic Games to showcase many of the best young soccer players in the country,” said Rob Thompson, managing partner of the North American Sports Group.  He added, “the AAU is synonymous with excellence in youth athletics and we’re excited to be a part of the festivities in Des Moines.”
