Naples, Florida

ONLY THE BEST JOIN US IN PARADISE!

Playing in the All-American Series at all locations gives each player 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 Golden Cup locations for the All-American Super Cup and earn the recognition as one of the “NATION’S BEST PLAYERS” for the year.

The Golden Cup is LOADED with talent featuring hundreds of players from all around the United States. Over 40 states represented! Our biggest event yet!

If you’re invited to play in the Golden Cup, you will not want to miss this opportunity.
