Noah Izquierdo  •  Minnesota  • Player  -  U10 Park Valley United, Minn.


Noah Izquierdo may be one of our youngest players at the tournament, but he’s playing in Schwan’s USA CUP for the second year in a row. Noah is an all-around player on his team and is able to play any position. “My favorite thing about this tournament is the bag,” he says. “I really like the bag.” Although the bag may be his favorite extra at USA CUP, he’s excited to play more out-of-state teams.

Richard Stokes  •  Winnipeg Manitoba, Canada  • Coach — U15 Girls Bonivital Flames


This is the Bonivital Flames third year at Schwan’s USA CUP. They have played a total of eight games at the tournament. Every game they have played has been a different team, including teams from five different states. Other than soccer, the girls on his team love to go shopping.

Bryce Bockin  •  Eden Prairie, MN  •  Referee


Bryce Bockin is 22 years old and a grade six referee who has been coming to Schwan’s USA CUP for the past seven years. He keeps coming back to USA CUP each year to work with people from around the world.

“I love all the diversity,” Bockin said. “It’s cool to see all the different countries represented.”
