Corporate Responsibility

Kohl's US Youth Soccer Partnership

Kohl’s will serve as the Official Department Store sponsor of US Youth Soccer in 2016. At the center of our partnerships is Kohl’s American Cup, the largest traveling youth recreational soccer tournament in the country. This grassroots recreational soccer program provides youth players the opportunity to experience the challenge and excitement of a tournament in a friendly, supportive family-oriented atmosphere.

Kohl's American Cup philosophy is that all players receive equal opportunities and benefits within their level of play. All players have the right to participate in competitions where they can develop and exhibit their skills in an atmosphere that places emphasis on participation, as opposed to competition. 

Additionally, Kohl's will continue to support the US Youth Soccer National Championship Series, the crown jewel of competitive youth soccer, at the regional and national levels, as well as supporting future US Youth Soccer opportunities to further the membership benefits of the association. 

Kohl's feels that involving kids in sports is a great way for them to get the most out of life and the activity. The boundless memories, lessons and values gained by participating in the Kohl's American Cup will develop a foundation for our nation's youth to excel.

"With two boys and one girl participating in youth soccer, we’re constantly busy traveling to practice, watching games and attending camps. It seems that everywhere we go, Kohl’s is there as well—it's refreshing to see a big company taking the time, effort and monetary resources to do something positive for kids.”

“My son played soccer from the time he was 5 years old through 8 years old. Every uniform he wore during that time had a big Kohl’s logo on the back. He’s 10 years old now and he still refers to Kohl’s as ‘the great soccer company.’ It’s nice to see that your efforts are not going unnoticed by your youngest customers. Keep up the good work.”
