The event is being hosted by the Bayonne High School Girls Soccer Parents Booster Club, which is called SPORT-BHS. Club President Jim Mock said, “I would like to encourage the entire Bayonne community to join us for a great day of soccer and fun on Saturday, August 20.  We look forward to bringing together current and former players from Bayonne High School and the BYSA, along with soccer fans from the community.  Come join us to support our great high school soccer players.”

This event was originally planned prior to the COVID pandemic and was shelved after the virus outbreak. Mr. Mock said, “The time now seems perfect with the entire BHS Soccer Program evolving with the addition of new coaches at all levels.  The Boys Head Coach is Jim McCaffery.  The Girls Head Coach is Victor Pesantez. We are hopeful that this event will become an annual celebration.”  He continued, “Our mission for this event is evident in our slogan, Bringing Bayonne Together.  Having a day of soccer showcasing the many teams that represent Bayonne will hopefully increase the support for our high school program.”
