    The Les Schwab Classic Youth Soccer Tournament at the Les Schwab Sports Park in Springfield, Oregon had its second year of action over Memorial Day weekend. Everyone at the tournament enjoyed great weather and even greater teamwork.

    The tournament, organized by Willamalane Park and Recreation District and sponsored by Les Schwab, brings children of all skill levels together to play soccer. Over a period of two days, 26 teams participated in the tournament.

    “We wanted to provide the participants with the ability to build their skills, sportsmanship and their overall fitness,” said Jason Gale, Les Schwab store manager after handing out awards to participants.

    Les Schwab is proud to support events like this and help provide an opportunity for young athletes.

    Les Schwab is proud to have helped deliver books to this worthwhile cause by donating a book for every free pre-trip safety check completed earlier in the year. In all, over 650 books were purchased for the program.

    Laurie McNichols, SMART South Valley Program Manager said, “Having enough books for children to read is very important to us.”
