The Cutters Soccer Club presents The 2013 Hurryin’ Hackers Soccer Tournament to be held in Bloomington, Indiana at Karst Farm Park on Saturday, July 20, 2013. Be a part of an exciting weekend of fast paced, high scoring soccer. Join in, and be a HURRYIN’ HACKER. The King of the Hill event is back with fun skills challenges.
Hackers will be a 4v4 event for the second straight year. With 4v4, each team puts one more player on the field, increasing the playing time for each player. In addition, each player is entered into the King of the Hill event at no additional cost.
Why 4v4? As either a player or a fan, you will experience the beautiful game the right way! It represents the smallest configuration of a match by having the necessary elements of penetration, width, and depth and position mobility without duplication.

The Cutters Juggling Club has been established to inspire players to practice on their own, set goals, and improve their technical soccer skills.
A player’s touch and feel for the ball is vital in soccer and juggling is one of the best exercises to learn how the ball reacts to different parts of the foot and body. Juggling also helps to develop body control, core strength, and balance while providing a good work out. All that’s required is a ball, a small space, and some determination. Players that progress through the Cutters Juggling Club Levels will undoubtedly experience improved success in their soccer matches. Have fun and good luck!
1. Players may only use their feet. Touches with the feet count toward the total number of juggles. The count must return to zero if the ball hits the ground. All other body parts can be used (except hands) but they do not count toward the total number of juggles. (Ex. If a player uses their thigh to keep the ball in the air it will not be counted, but the players can continue their count with the next touch with their feet. One foot, two foot, thigh, three foot would count as three.) Continue reading about Cutters Juggling Club – New!
