How To Have The Most Fun:
Pack Water & Sunscreen - Don't forget the chairs, umbrella & tent for shade breaks!
• Make A Plan - know your schedule and plan accordingly getting in and out of each venue. Many families will be coming to and from each game so plan to be patient. Be sure to plan where everyone's going for the team dinner!
• Break Your Plan - Catch up with teammates new & old, linger at the fields before or after the game to watch some soccer, and be sure to grab some free swag offered at the venues (look for the tents).
• Drink Water Constantly
• Eat Breakfast, Lunch, Snacks & Dinner!
• Cheer On Your Team - We all want the best experience for the player's, referees, coaches and spectators on and off the field, so please encourage abundantly and leave the negativity behind.
• Live in the moment and enjoy the games! 

Best of luck to all teams competing! We thank you and your family for spending your holiday weekend playing this great game of soccer in our beautiful city.
