On September 29 America SCORES St. Louis is joining forces with ten U.S. cities to beat the Guinness World Record for the most soccer balls ever dribbled by a group at one time.
This event benefits America SCORES youth and engages the local and national community in their mission to inspire youth to lead healthy lives. More than 300 St. Louisans are already signed up for the event.
St. Louis made history last year at the first annual Great St. Louis Soccer Dribble when 428 soccer dribblers came together to set the Guinness World Record. But the United Nations defeated the record with 2,068 dribblers in the Gaza Strip.
America SCORES St. Louis has called upon America SCORES sites across the country to synchronize their soccer dribble time and take back the world record together. Participating cities include Atlanta, San Francisco, Chicago, Cleveland, Denver, Portland, Milwaukee, New York, Los Angeles, Seattle and St. Louis. Participants will receive:
Ability to participate in the world-record attempt
Official event T-shirt
Official event soccer ball
Free musical entertainment including a national theme song featuring ASCAP songwriter and Grammy winner Alonzo Lee and America SCORES kids
Free skills demonstrations and 4v4 youth soccer
Ticket to the SLU Homecoming men's soccer game that evening
The Great America SCORES Soccer Dribble will be held at the Robert R. Hermann Stadium, 221 N. Grand at Saint Louis University. Check in begins at 4 p.m. and the dribble begins at 5 p.m.
Registration is $20 for individuals or $12.50 for families with code FAMILY online.
