Coastal Empire All-Star soccer event Saturday. Local signing roundup.

Windsor Forest’s Cam Turner, who has always been an advocate for soccer in southeast Georgia, has scheduled his 13th annual Coastal Empire All-Star Soccer event for Saturday, May 14, at Memorial Stadium.

There will be 70 girls and 70 boys in the event – some traveling from as far as two hours away to play in a tournament that attracts college coaches from throughout the Southeast.

“We’ve had more than 100 kids who have been recruited from playing in the all-star games,” said Turner, the Windsor Forest athletic director who came back to coach the Knights’ boys soccer team this year. “Playing in these games gets players on the radar of college coaches. It’s getting pretty big now and everyone is jumping on the chance to play. We’ve got all the top high school players participating.”

There will be four boys teams and four girls teams playing in the event. Girls games begin at 9:30 am and run through 1:30 pm, with the boys starting at 1:45 pm and ending at 5:45 pm Admission is $ 5, with tickets $ 3 for children 12 and under.
