By Kara Hallissey | Aug 03, 2017

(Aug. 4, 2017) Approximately 500 athletes will participate in the second annual Beach 5 Sand Soccer tournament taking place on Saturday with about 10 fields lining the beach from Dorchester to First Streets.

The soccer players range in age from under 8 years old to adults, with 10 players on each team. They will begin competing at 8 a.m. Saturday morning with both boys’ and girls’ in addition to adult co-ed teams playing until about 6 p.m. on Aug. 5.

“We focus on the fun factor of these events (all of our tournaments) and we emphasize this to coaches, parents and participants,” said Angela Lewis, the administrator for Beach 5 Sand Soccer. “Our staff lives that every day. If you can’t have fun doing what you love, then why do it?”

The 45 teams will be visiting from all over the East Coast including North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, New York, Delaware and New Jersey.

In June, Beach 5 Sand Soccer held a larger, two-day tournament with 200 teams competing, which has taken place in Ocean City for a decade.

Catch this weekend’s events for free on the Boardwalk between Dorchester and First Streets from 8 a.m. to about 6 p.m. Saturday.
