How the PCRPD/Optimist Tri-Star Soccer Skills Competition Scored
The Tri-Star Competition emphasizes the 3 most important fundamental skills of soccer: dribbling, passing and shooting. Participants go through a series of 3 drills in an attempt to achieve a perfect score. The points scored from all 3 drills are added together for a cumulative total.
Race against the clock as you blaze through the slalom course of flags. Each participant gets one attempt at dribbling through the course as the stopwatch ticks. The total score is recorded in tenths of a second and converted to points. Faster is better, but you have to keep control!
Nail a pass through the tightest zone for accuracy! Each participant attempts three passes from 10 yards away through a line of flags. Each space between the flags - or zone - is worth a different amount of points. The narrower the zone, the more points it is worth. Do you play it safe, or do you go for the points?
Launch a shot at the target to score big points! Each participant attempts three shots from either 8 or 12 yards from goal (depending on age). Each shot is taken on a regulation-sized goal with a target net that designates point totals for each zone. Pick the easy shot for the sure points, or try and hit the upper 90 for a big payoff!
