Get Ready to "Expect Amazing" ~ The World Cup is Coming to OCPS Recess Periods.

Get Moving, Stay Healthy, Learn & Love Soccer, Build Community, Encourage Teamwork

The FIFA World Cup is the most watched tournament in football (soccer). The Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) organizes the World Cup every four years. More people watch the World Cup finals than any other sporting event in the world. This year the OCPS will celebrate the World Cup by having a friendly tournament of our own. Each grade level (Grades K-3) will have the opportunity to play in bracket style games. This "tournament" will expose students to the basic rules of the game of soccer, create community, encourage teamwork, and motivate kids to get moving and be active! As the 2022 World Cup slogan suggests, get ready to "Expect Amazing". The OCPS Recess World Cup will begin November 16 and culminate on December 18th.
