The Beecher High School girls soccer team will host the second annual "Wounded Warrior — Shoot for the Troops" game at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday when it plays Herscher.
The game was originally scheduled for April 18, but was postponed due to the weather and field conditions.
The project helps soldiers and their families as well as veterans. It can be anything from providing support for those with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder to helping purchase a prosthetic.
Beecher coach Dawn Compton said military members and their families will attend. Admission will cost $3 admission. All money collected will be donated to the Wound Warrior Project.
Last year, Compton asked the team to come up with a cause and the players chose this. In the fall, the boys team does a "Pink" game to raise awareness and money for breast cancer research and prevention.'
The Beecher players will dress in camouflage jerseys.
"This was a success last year," Compton said. "This is really more than a soccer match. It is about honoring our veterans. I think everyone has a parent, grandparent, relative or friend that has served or is serving our country.
"I think it brings awareness for our young people to realize those people are protecting our freedom."
She added anyone who is in the military, family, or friends will be honored at a halftime ceremony.
"Four our kids, we want them to walk away from soccer learning more than just soccer," Compton said. "We want them contribute to their community, give back."
