always available to help the League when called upon. Her specialty was a
hosted barbeque for the PCSL members at the end of each season, and these dinners
were always five star and appreciated by all. Likewise, the luncheons she

Pacific Coast Soccer League is pleased to announce Penticton Soccer Club
will be Hosting a Men's Premier International tournament named the John F
Kennedy Cup Tournament to be held at Kings Park Penticton, BC., 2020, June 6th/7th
Originating in 1960 the John F Kennedy trophy ( Kennedy Cup) was born out of an idea to have the annual international Championship which would be played for by top caliber representative men amateur soccer teams from Canada USA and Mexico. The Trophy remains unique even today in that it
is the sole sporting award to which the late US President ever lent his name.
When the tournament was inaugurated in 1961, the late President Kennedy, recognizing the physical requirements in the sport of soccer, gave his name to the trophy in connection with his physical fitness campaign. Mexico participated from 1961 to 1966, but in 1989 the PCSL revised the tournament format with Washington State. Oregon State and the Pacific Coast League as the participants. Three leagues alternate the running of the event each year, and this year, Washington State will be represented by Washington league Champions Washington Premier FC. Oregon State will be represented by the current holders of the JFK cup, IPS Marathon Taverna.
The PCSL will be represented by the 2019 Shelia Anderson Memorial Cup Champions, Vancouver Tigers FC., and Okanagan United Selects, which will include players from Kamloops, Kelowna and Penticton.
The Pacific Coast Soccer League encourage everyone to take the opportunity to attend this International event on the June 6th/7th weekend of 2020 at Kings Park, Penticton, BC. The Penticton SC is sponsoring the event and they have been members of the Pacific Coast Soccer League for many years participating and promoting Adult Soccer in their community. We wish to thank them for making this event possible, and for bringing this International event to the Interior of British Columbia for the first time.
