Kentucky Women’s Soccer Seeking Ball Kids, Escorts for 2015

LEXINGTON, Ky. – The University of Kentucky women’s soccer team kicked off its 2015 preseason on Wednesday morning at the Wendell & Vickie Bell Soccer Complex and now just sits 16 days away from its season opener on Aug 21 against No. 20 Washington at 7:30 p.m. ET.

Kentucky is looking for ball kids to help on select home games this season by retrieving the balls that go out of play while standing on the touch line the entire game and earning other perks along the way. All ball kids must be at least 10 years old, and with that you will get free admission into the Wendell & Vickie Bell Soccer Complex for all your players and coaches. All games will need at least 10 ball kids for every team that signs up.

Team escorts walk out onto the field with the players during introductions and the National Anthem, and those players must be younger than the 8th grade to participate. Like the ball kids, admission for all player escorts and coaches will be free of charge.

Please e-mail the Kentucky Marketing Dept. at with your team’s information to be eligible to participate.
