Pacific Rim Cup 2024 features Hawaii Soccer Legend Kenji Treschuk as a special coach again!

May 23, 2024


We are thrilled to announce that Mr. Kenji Treschuk, a former professional soccer player from Hawaii, will be participating as a special coach again this year at Pacific Rim Cup 2024. Kenji Treschuk is considered one of Hawaii's soccer legends, and his involvement promises to make this event truly unforgettable for all participants.


Moanalua High School graduate Treschuk played club soccer for the amateur Honolulu Bulls of the Men's Island Soccer Organization before attending Pennsylvania State University (Penn State) on scholarship where he was a three-time Big Ten All Academic Team honoree.


Upon graduating from Penn State, he played for Dutch teams HCSC and AFC34 in the Netherlands before returning to the U.S. to sign with the Seattle Sounders of USL First Division in 2007.


Following a rookie season where he started 15 games out of 26 regular season games, Treschuk became the Sounders’ enforcer on the way to a United Soccer Leagues First Division title and was recognized as Rookie of the Year in the 2007 USL-1 Award Finalist before moving on to Charleston Battery in 2009.

Aloha! Are you guys ready? I am Kenji Treschuk. I will be participating in the Pacific Rim Cup again this year as a special coach. It is very exciting for the Hawaii community that the Pacific Rim Cup is coming back this year.


The coaches with international experience will be a valuable role model for many children. Our buddy Yama (Takuya Yamada) will be there, as well as David "Bingy" Lara, Head of Academy Recruitment of Seattle Sounders FC (MLS). I hear we will have even more great additions and I look forward to seeing many of the kids! Mahalo!
