Join us for soccer and fun this fall in Gatlinburg, Tennessee! Arrive on Friday for check-in (mid-morning) and receive your player’s All-American Kit, followed by our player evaluation session, team practices and start of pool play games. On Saturday, all teams play two pool play games. That night under the lights the top players play in the All-Star Game. Sunday is bracket play. Let’s see what teams gel the best together and advance all the way to the Championship Game. Gatlinburg is one of the last All-American Series events before our All-American Golden Cup later in December! If you can’t make any of our summer locations, you don’t want to miss this one!
