Spring Kohl's American Cup
The Kohl's US Youth Soccer American Cup offers recreational soccer players an opportunity to play in a high-quality tournament in a fun atmosphere, where the emphasis is placed on participation, rather than competition.
Iowa Soccer's US Youth Soccer Kohl's American Cup for U07-U14 teams, held in Ames is a guaranteed three-game, round-robin format. Scores and standings are not kept in the U10-below divisions, and all participants receive a participation award. In U11-above divisions, semifinal and final matches are held, with members of the first- and second-place teams each receiving awards.
This US Youth Soccer event is the largest recreational youth soccer festival in the United States, boasting more than 65,000 participants. The Iowa Soccer Association has run a US Youth Soccer American Cup every year since 1992. Kohl's Department stores is the most recent national sponsor.
Team & Player Eligibility
This event is for Iowa Soccer member teams and players classified as Level 3. You are not
allowed to assemble a "tournament team roster" for this event or use non-Iowa Soccer member players; Kohl's American Cup is for the regular-season roster/team. Each player must have a current US Youth Soccer player pass for that team. We do have a "Guest Player Allowance" designed to help coaches secure enough players to enter if not all your families can commit to a tournament weekend. Review allowance details on the Guest Player Allowance page.
