Catch the Code Four Soccer Car in Oregon City, OR this Sat., August 24th.

Soccer Ball Car by Code Four AthleticsWe’re hitting the road again to share the Soccer Car love, this time with the fine folks of the Oregon City Soccer Club (not surprisingly located in Oregon City, OR).  

Stop by the Fischer’s Mill Sports Complex for their season kick-off Jamboree featuring food and games for the whole family. And, of course, our cool company car.  

Can’t be there? Check us out online, and if you still can’t get enough, get your own mini die-cast model for just $5 (plus shipping – I mean, it can’t drive itself). Play on!

Nearly three years ago, Code Four supporter Mike K. came across an all-white VW Volkswagen Beetle. Much like us, he saw the possibilities of turning this all-white ‘canvas’ into a glorious soccer ball masterpiece.

While we farmed out the work to create our Code Four Soccer Ball Bug, Mike did it all himself: ordering decals on the Internet, using the hood of an old Ford as a test run, utilizing black wrapping paper to hone his skills, and then finally applying the finished graphic pattern to his baby.

Says Mike: “The Laws of the Game require defenders to be at least 10 yards away from the ball during a free kick. Same goes here. The decals look good from more than 10 yards away, but no so good up-close.” He’s just being humble! We think it looks great.

Cool at school: Code Four Athletics and Blossoming Hill Montessori.

Soccer has played a big part in children’s lives at Blossoming Hill Montessori School (Maple Valley, WA), so as a special year-end gift, school administrators decided to surprise the kids with soccer jerseys emblazoned with the school’s cool logo.

Code Four Athletics worked with the school’s co-founder, April Shiosaki, to supply the jerseys. April found us through Googling ‘soccer uniforms’ and we’re so glad she did! Blossoming Hill Montessori School kids wearing Code Four Athletics soccer jerseys

The Code Four Athletics Soccer Ball Car showed up during the jersey presentation, adding “icing on the cake” to the day’s events, according to April, who took TONS of pictures of the kids with the Car. Thanks, Blossoming Hill!
