Ridgewood NJ, On Saturday, September 23, 2017, the Ridgewood High School boys and girls soccer programs will come together to host Super Soccer Saturday (SSS). On this special day for soccer players of all ages, more than 200 youth and high school players and their families will gather to celebrate the beautiful game of soccer.

All three levels of the boys and girls high school soccer teams will play home games on the stadium field at Ridgewood High School. The girls will face Wayne Hills and the boys will take on Northern Valley – Demarest. The game schedule is as follows:

Freshman Girls: 9:30 am Freshman Boys: 11:30 am
JV Girls: 1:30 pm JV Boys: 3:30 pm
Varsity Girls: 5:30 pm Varsity Boys: 7:30 pm

A highlight of SSS is the parade of youth players from the Ridgewood Soccer Association and Maroons Soccer Club who accompany the varsity teams onto the field during the
pregame ceremonies.

New this year… the NY Red Bulls freestyle “Street Team” will be performing during halftime at both varsity games, and will host an interactive station for youth soccer fans.
The NY Red Bulls Street Team has been combining street style with soccer for years, wowing audiences outside Red Bull Arena and pushing the boundaries of what is possible
with a soccer ball.

All members of the Ridgewood community are encouraged to come to SSS and support the high school players. Fans will enjoy a variety of food concessions and can purchase
Ridgewood Soccer apparel. Attendees should be sure to stop by one of the 50/50 raffle stations to buy a ticket for a chance to win 50% of all raffle ticket sales. The winner will be
drawn at 9:00 pm and need not be present.

Many local businesses have kindly agreed to sponsor SSS. All proceeds support the soccer programs and Michael Feeney’s BEST DAY EVER, Inc., a local non-profit created
in memory of Michael Feeney to enable families with ill children to enjoy a “Best Day Ever.”

SSS will offer fun for the entire family, including a bounce house, tattoo station and youth soccer activities. In between games, youth players can participate in the SSS “Take a
Kick” contest and try to score a goal with one of several beloved youth soccer coaches guarding the net.

The Ridgewood High School Soccer programs seek to develop soccer players to their fullest athletic and academic potential, and to encourage them to become good citizens in
the community. SSS will provide an opportunity for players to be their best, both on and off the field.
