Eric Weekley  •  Brooklyn Park, Minnesota  •  Operations Intern

This is Eric’s second year as Operations Intern at USA CUP. There is plenty for the operations team to do, and Eric enjoys the responsibility of helping the tournament run smoothly and on time. 


Gerardo Pinto  •  Costa Rica  •  Parent of U13 Boys Lincoln School

This is the first time Gerardo has been to the tournament, and the boys’ team has done well - they won their flight against some very good competition. He is impressed by the size of the tournament and how well organized it is.


Ashley Marston  •  Carver, Minnesota  •  Super Volunteer

The best part for Ashley is seeing the excitement that the referees have when they get to see the other referees and reunite here at the tournament. She enjoys chatting with people from all over the world and getting to know what its like in other countries. 


Finn Hutchinson, Jack Hockert, Lance Hockert  •  Maple Grove & Wayzata, Minnesota  •  Fusion

These boys really enjoyed the free Gatorade this year, and their favorite flavor is either purple or blue - they can’t decide. Jack’s best memory so far has been watching his brother’s team play against a team from Uganda, and  "They were really good."
