Dedicated to Coach Curtis
The HBCU CUP is dedicated to Coach Curtis “The Daddy” Landy, the former long -term assistant coach at Howard University who passed away earlier this year. Coach Curtis you may be gone but your soft reassuring voice both on and off the field will continue to touch a new generation of soccer players through countless Howard Alumni soccer players who you nurtured from boys to men, during your twenty plus years of coaching, who are now coaching themselves. I am one of them.
The HBCU CUP seeks to build a community of students who love to play soccer and provides resources for these students to be better prepared to take advantage of the unique opportunities provided by Historically Black Colleges and Universities.
Tournament and Experiences
The HBCU CUP Soccer Tournament is an exciting multiday tournament that allows school age children to compete against each other while representing their favorite Historically Black College and University.
In addition to providing soccer coaching and opportunities to compete athletically, the HBCU CUP is also committed to supporting our team members’ academic progress with resources like self-paced online programs and live online and in-person tutoring resources that are designed to help students practice and master skills required to be successful in school.
The HBCU Cup team members will also learn about the history and culture of Historically Black Colleges and Universities through online courses, alumni mentorship, current student interviews, and college tours.
The HBCU CUP BLOG tells inspirational stories about soccer and educational achievement. Readers will also find articles about rich history and culture of Historically Black Colleges and Universities.
