Keeper Wars Ink is Partnering with South Dakota Youth Soccer & Dakota Alliance Soccer Club!

Keeper Wars Ink is excited to partner with South Dakota Youth Soccer and Dakota Alliance Soccer Club to give back to the goalkeeper community. As we continue to grow, we are excited to see the benefits this partnership garners for the keeper community. We cannot wait to see the great goalkeepers of South Dakota battle it out in our national qualifying event. 

“For many of our current events around the US, we have been noticing players coming from South Dakota. My staff and I realized how cool it was to see dedicated keepers from this area diving into our competitions! By touching base with local leaders in South Dakota, we realized the need to bring our national platform to them! I am excited to grow our community to another part of the US with amazing people who see the bigger picture and want to impact our goalkeeper community with us!” 

Casey Clark, Keeper Wars Ink, CEO & USYS Goalkeeper Club Director

“SDYSA has been watching the success of the Keeper Wars events throughout the United States and we were more than ready to jump on board when we were asked to look into hosting our own event. As a state association, we want to continue bringing exciting and quality events for all of our members to enjoy, while simultaneously continuing to reach more youth in our area to get them involved in this game we all love. This event is going to be a fantastic way to bring together players from all over our state. We are honored to be a new part of the Keeper Wars community!”  

Polly Dean, South Dakota Youth Soccer Association, Executive Director

“After hearing all of the happenings at a Keeper Wars event from our players that would travel to TN, KC, and Omaha, I thought why would we not want to partner with Keeper Wars to bring an event to Sioux Falls?!!  We have 2 high-quality facilities that are tailor-made for this event in Yankton Trails Park, home to the USYS Region 2 NCS Tournament in 1998, 2005, and 2017 a grass facility, and the brand-new state of the art Sanford Crossing Complex a turf complex. We look forward to a partnership that will elevate the programming opportunities for players in South Dakota and the upper Midwest soccer landscape.”

Frank Gurnick, Dakota Alliance Soccer Club, Director of Soccer Operations

We look forward to seeing the great keepers of South Dakota on the battlefield in the 2023-2024 City Tour Season. The event weekend will start with a Pre-Event Clinic on Friday night, followed by tournament play on Saturday & Sunday, with all goalkeepers guaranteed 5 games over the 2 days. Winners of each age group will be invited to our 2024 National Championship in partnership with US Youth Soccer!
