5th Annual JRP 3v3 Soccer Tournament

On Monday, October 10th, 2022, the Ellington Recreation Department presented the fifth annual JRP 3v3 Soccer Tourney to benefit the Jacob Roger Poulin Foundation! It was another perfect day for our wonderful community to celebrate Jacob.

Jacob was an amazing athlete who, even at a young age, embodied the desire to compete along with the good sportsmanship that we yearn to see from the highest-level athletes. This mindset is what we strive to see at this event, and our players did not disappoint. Each player displayed that same level of athleticism, passion and sportsmanship that we know Jacob would have demonstrated as well.

With 32 teams and 149 players and their families gathered at Robert Tedford Memorial Field, the 2022 JRP 3v3 Soccer Tourney raised close to $10,000 that will go in its entirety towards building J4cob's Park! Thank you so much to our sponsors, to our wonderful volunteers, and to Dustin Huguenin and to the Town of Ellington's Recreation Department, without whom this event would not have been possible.

The most special of thank you's belongs to the Desrocher Family. In August of 2017, Nick, Cindy, and Jim Desrocher offered that they wanted to organize a 3v3 soccer tournament that would benefit the JRPF. What an incredible, annual event they put together that we hope will continue for many years to come! We owe many thanks to the Desrocher Family as they help keep Jacob's name from being forgotten. ​
