ALL-AMERICAN GOLDEN CUP + ALL-AMERICAN SUPERCUP

Playing in the All-American Series gives all players the opportunity to be selected as one of the TOP PLAYERS from each event, allowing participation in the All-American Golden Cup held each winter in Naples, Florida (EAST version) and Mesa, Arizona (WEST version). From there, players are selected from both EAST and WEST Golden Cup locations for the All-American SuperCup in Round Rock, Texas in March and earn the recognition as one of the “NATION’S BEST PLAYERS” for the year. If you’re invited to play in the Golden Cup, you will not want to miss this opportunity. Selected players will receive an invitation by email / text no later than 15 days from the All-American Series event you participated in.
