The DSC March tournament is in tribute to Ray Thompsett, soccer pioneer. Ray began soccer in Rock Hill in the late 70’s filling the need of many to start organized soccer leagues. His u12 team ‘the Coca Cola Kickers’ was the first Rock Hill team to be registered with SC Youth Soccer. Ray moved out of SC and on to FL, TN and into all 3 state’s Hall of Fame. He became increasingly involved in Youth Soccer by accepting a position as Region 3 Director, then US Youth Soccer Executive Director. We are proud to honor Ray with a tournament in his name.
