Jack Kurty Challenge

50 years ago this year, Coach John Kurty's Westfield State Soccer Team were State, New England and NCAA East District I Champions and placed third in the nation at the 1974 NCAA Division III Soccer Championship in Chicago, IL - the best-ever performance by a Westfield State team.

Coach Kurty had a profound impact on the thousands of young people he mentored throughout his life. His legacy lives on through the Coach John Kurty Scholarship for Movement Science, awarded annually to students pursuing a degree in the Department of Movement Science at Westfield State.

Please consider making a gift to the Coach John Kurty Scholarship for Movement Science.

Here’s how to do it: Click on the “Give Now!” button. Under designations, choose “Student Scholarships” and then go to the “Coach John Kurty Scholarship for Movement Science” from there.
