For 14 years, Geneseo’s Seth Ernst Soccer Slam has been an annual tradition of fun and competition for area kids loving the game of soccer.

Geneseo's Seth Ernst Soccer Slam Canceled, Will Return In 2022

Teams like these boys from the EMSSC Spartans U13 unfortunately won’t get to enjoy the thrill of competition and fun during the annual Seth Ernst Soccer Slam this year.

This year, for the first time since its inception, it won’t be held.

Seth Ernst officials announced they’re canceling the event for 2021 due to covid, looking to start it up again in 2022.

The following email was sent out to area soccer coaches and team officials:
