The tournaments namesake, Charlotte Moran, had been involved in soccer for more than 20 years, beginning at the grassroots level as a team manager through roles at regional and national levels. In addition to her leadership roles as the state level, she also served as the US Youth Soccer Olympic Development Program Girls Region I Administrator for a number of years, US Youth Soccer Olympic Development Program National ODP Girls Chair, and NSCAA Girls Youth Representative.
A staunch supporter of girls and women soccer players, she hosted women’s national team games in Pennsylvania, promoted the professional women’s league and encouraged clubs and schools to offer girls’ soccer.
Moran worked with the girls in her region to teach a love of the game, not only as a player but a spectator. On many occasions she addressed girls’ teams and organizations, sharing with them the unique qualities of the game and how the team concept fostered in the game helped develop personal growth.
Funds raised will be used to provide financial support to anyone who has been involved as a player, coach, or administrator of girls or women’s soccer for their positive contribution to the sport or in support of their continued work in the development or promotion of the women’s game.
