The Silverlakes Equestrian and Sports Park in Norco will host some of the best soccer players in North America this weekend.
The inaugural Silverlakes College Showcase will take place Nov. 25-27, at the 130-acre facility located at 5555 Hamner Ave. The all-girls event will feature top players from birth years of 1998-2004, as well as collegiate scouts from across the country, according to the facility’s website.
To celebrate the event and the opening of an on-site restaurant, The Backyard, a live concert has been scheduled from 6-9:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 25. Jurgen Klinsmann, head coach of the most recent U.S. men’s soccer team, will deliver an opening address prior to the concert, which is a private event restricted to city officials, team members, college scouts and sponsors, explained spokeswoman Lelani Kroeker.
The games will be free open to the public, though there will be an $8 parking fee per car. Matches will start from roughly 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, Nov. 25, and 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. An all-star game featuring some of the best U.S. players and a Canadian team starts at 4:30 p.m. Saturday.
