In the most competitive event, 228 soccer teams will compete in the Disney Soccer Showcase Qualifier. This event is the precursor to the heralded Disney Soccer Showcase, one of the premier high school soccer recruiting events in the nation. Champions from this weekend will earn automatic selection into the Disney Girls Soccer Showcase in November and the Disney Boys Soccer Showcase in December.
Also, the complex will host 38 baseball teams in the Disney Labor Day Baseball Classic. The event gives athletes one last chance to play with their 2017 summer team. This year, the event welcomes 23 teams from Florida and 15 teams from Massachusetts, Puerto Rico, New York, Illinois, Connecticut, Virginia and the US Virgin Islands combined.
As the transition to fall sports gets underway, football, field hockey and volleyball teams are kicking off their seasons in various KSA events at the complex including KSA Events Labor Day Volleyball and KSA Events Football Game of the Week.
