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 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.
It's so nice, we thought we'd do it twice
2016-17 will mark the fifth year in which Iowa Soccer Level 3 (recreational) teams will have two Kohl's American Cup options. For several years, team entry at the June event in Ames was topping 100 teams, and with everyone having such a good time, we thought "why not do this again in the fall?"
Since each event is unique, we have two webpages, with each host location having a dedicated "home" where you can go to for all the information you'll need.
