The Oldsmar Youth Soccer Association activity was one of more than 2,000 events taking place nationwide during the month of June. Our event, designed to engage youth and promote the ideals of the Olympic movement, featured 1980 U.S. Mens Soccer team member, Perry Van der Beck.
Around the world, more than 160 countries take part in the annual celebration. Olympic Day, created in 1948 to commemorate the birth of the modern Olympic Games, focuses on the Olympic values and ideals such as fair play, perseverance, respect and sportsmanship. In the U.S., Olympic Day events range from small gatherings to large, city-wide events. We are very proud to have been choosen to represent our area this year.
