Soccer players will be making a splash in Paradise


A big weekend of soccer is planned in Paradise starting Friday with the SunSplash minor tournament, featuring 51 teams involving some 635 players.

The event opens at the Dianne Whelan Memorial Soccer Complex in Paradise 2 p.m. Friday, but three different fields will be put to use.

Here’s a look at the tournament numbers:

There will be 118 games in total in eight divisions in two different age groups, involving 51 teams from nine minor associations.

To put this tournament off, 12 summer staff members are involved, along with some 40 volunteers and 20 officials, not to mention the 125 coaches and managers.
