Tournament Hosted by MaryHelp of Christians Academy

Bloomfield, N.J. (Wednesday, December 23, 2009) – Planet90 Soccer announced today that it will be holding a U17 girls soccer tournament on Saturday, January 9th. The hosts of the tournament will be MaryHelp of Christians Academy, which is located at 659 Belmont Avenue in North Haledon, New Jersey.

“The Planet90 Soccer Girls U17 Tournament will be a competitive and fun event,” President Oral Bullen commented. “While it is being run as a U17 tournament, we will still accept U16 and U15 teams who can compete at a high level.”

With the weather causing most teams to head inside for training sessions, the demand for a quality indoor tournament has risen, something that led to Bullen establishing this tournament in conjunction with MaryHelp of Christians Academy.

“Due to a high level of demand, we will only accept six teams to the tournament,” he continued. “I have gotten a lot of calls lately about teams not having a place to play due to the cold weather, so Planet90 Soccer will help solve that problem with indoor tournaments, training sessions, and camps throughout the winter months. Speaking on behalf of Planet90 Soccer, we hope you can join us on January 9th and would like to wish everyone a Happy Holiday!”

The time for this tournament will be from 9:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. Roster sizes are limited to 12 players, and the games will be played 6v6 (including goalkeeper). Each team that registers will be guaranteed three full games of 26 minutes each, with the top four teams advancing to a playoff round. The winning team of the tournament will also be rewarded for its achievement.

Registration for this tournament is $125 per team and can be done online at or by mailing the registration form (also available online) to Planet90 Soccer, P.O. Box 223, Glen Ridge, NJ 07028. For additional questions, email Bullen directly at
