Annual Convention Showcases Soccer Industry
St. Louis, Mo. - The 62nd Annual NSCAA Soccer Coaches Convention took place earlier this month in St. Louis, and GK1 Soccer was on hand to display their latest product line. Known as "The World's Largest Annual Gathering of Soccer Coaches", the convention provided the perfect platform for GK1 Soccer to showcase the latest developments regarding the company.
"The NSCAA Soccer Coaches Convention was a very well organized event, and we were pleased to be able to expose the GK1 Soccer brand to so many members of the soccer community," co-founder Vance Kempin stated. "You could truly feel the energy for the game of soccer around you."
In the Exhibit Hall of the St. Louis Convention Center, approximately 300 companies congregated for the annual showcase. GK1 Soccer was in attendance for the full four-day slate of activities, which also included a coaching clinic and an exclusive luncheon for NSCAA All-America winners. Some of the future stars of the game were on hand as well as the 2009 Major League Soccer SuperDraft and the Women's Pro Soccer General Draft were held in conjunction with the convention.
"There was a major buzz around the convention, and it was exciting to be right in the middle of everything," GK1 Soccer executive Sal Rosamilia commented. "Not only did the convention offer the opportunity to reach such an extended number of people, but having the MLS SuperDraft and WPS General Draft there as well only increased the amount of excitement in the air."

Among the initial line of products available to the public are goalkeeper gloves, jerseys, pants, t-shirts and coaching bundle packs.
