Another incredibly well run NSC tournament and USA Cup is the big one.  Thanks for a great week and providing a forum for our youth to experience soccer as the global game that it is.  There is nowhere else except USA Cup for our kids to meet refs and players from a variety of countries.  Our boys loved having a Chinese ref who didn't speak English.  Both refs called a clean game and held our boys to a high standard.  The team is still talking about how cool it was.  Thank you.

The USA Cup was an amazing experience for our team. From the initial communication, the staff was incredible, always helpful throughout the planning process and very accommodating to any request and very diligent in their work to make our teams experience the right one. Once we arrived we were met by smiling greeters who accompanied us to the University of Minnesota and made sure we taken care of. The University and dorm life was awesome, our HS Boys were thrilled to live the College life for a week. The opening ceremonies was an Olympic like experience from the gathering of teams and meeting players from all over the world and throughout the entire ceremony, our players can’t stop talking about it. The entire week on the fields was special, we were blessed to play very well and play vs. some top level competition and make the Championship Final. Back home our Family and friends had the opportunity to watch livestream as if they were right there cheering us on. The entire experience is something every team should strongly consider attending, the USA Cup is and will be a memory of a lifetime for our Cedar Stars Academy U17 Boys team and don’t miss out, begin the planning for your team today!

Again I have to say thank you for giving us the worlds best service and a big experience at USA CUP. It was amazing and I hope we will come back. I will recommend USA CUP to all Norwegian teams to make a trip to your CUP and I will tell all that I speak to that it is awesome. All our players and parents will spread the words.

Yours sincerely,

On behalf of the South Simcoe United 2001 Girls Team, we would like to Thank You for an extremely well run Tournament! 

The Staff and Volunteers were all helpful, professional and efficient. Without their tireless dedication this spectacle would have been impossible to stage. Please pass along our gratitude to all involved.

Registration night was a non-issue as we did not experience any line up (which is customary at other tournaments)  and were sent merrily on our way in record time with all of the information needed for a successful tournament.

Next stop was the Hospitality "Tent" just outside of registration on the Tuesday night. The food and beverage was much appreciated. And we had a visit from you Tom...little did we know our paths would cross again at the Team Experience as well as out and about the Complex during the week.  It was that first interaction with you Tom that set the tone for the entire was warm, inviting and provided a personal connection to the tournament (in fact the face of the tournament from our perspective).

Not only was the off-field experience second-to-none, but so was the on-field. The girls were engaged during their Team Experience sessions and still talk about doing headers with Tony and trying to keep their team "shape" with Tom

The total positive experience agreed with our girls as they rose to the occasion with a strong performance from the first kickoff. This will be something that all of our girls, parents, grandparents and siblings will long remember and I can't express our gratitude enough. We will be passing along our wonderful experience to all who will listen and in fact we have highly recommended the USA Cup as a Premiere Destination to teams already!  I am sure the USA Cup will be high on everyones Tournament list for years to come.  Well Done!

Thanks and best regards,

Just wanted to take a moment to express my gratitude to the USA Cup Team for once again going above and beyond the call of duty to make all the athletes feel special and most welcomed. This is my son’s second time at USA Cup, and our experience just keeps getting better as you raise the bar year after year!

I know there are so many individuals involved to making this such a success and I wanted to ensure that each of them are aware how much they impacted our experience positively. Every attention to detail was given and no matter what pitch we were on, we felt very much catered to and well taken care of.

We miss the USA Cup 2012 experience already and hopefully we’ll see you next year.

Thank you thank you thank you!

We were the only team from Hawai`i during the 2011 week tournament and we were impressed by how organized the whole tournament ran from the minute we flew in to MN at the airport, excellent transportation service, great tournament staff, all accommodations were above expectations, the best meal plan for a team, competitive international games, great social events for the players, very accommodating staff, great customer service, loved the international teams and refs., great ceremony...but most of all, awesome soccer memories!  USA CUP lives up to all of the hype and more... the total package tournament!!! - Doug

Thank you to all of you who plan, work, and volunteer annually for the tournament.  Our team had such a wonderful experience at this year’s USA Cup.  You all do a fabulous job!!!   The competition was superb, the activities were exciting, and the dorm was perfect.   I am sure that no other tournament will come close to the USA Cup. - Margie

We had a FANTASTIC time once again at the tournaments and enjoyed every minute of our time there. We definitely enjoyed the training session with the coaches from Iceland and I know they made a lasting impression on the girls!

The staff at the USA Cup do a amazing job and we will definitely be bringing other teams to your tournament in the near future and for years to come.

Thanks again for an incredible experience and we look forward to more every year!
