Award Ceremonies

Present winning teams with trophies/medals after completion of championship games on Sunday, July 13, 2014 and Saturday, July 19, 2014.

Airport Greeters

As Minnesota's largest tourism event we want to welcome our guests properly. Volunteers meet the teams and referees at the airport and assist them with tournament information and connect them to the Schwan's USA CUP transportation. Lots of walking so great opportunity to get exercise!

Field Managers

Field managers are the lifeblood of the tournament! As a field manager, you're stationed at a field manager tent in the middle of the action and you get to watch the games. You help games get started on time, answer questions from curious parents and players, make tournament headquarters aware of any problems on the field, summon medical personnel if needed, and assist the referees stationed at your tent. If you like meeting new people and watching soccer, this is the place for you.
