More Info

Part of the appeal is the high level of competition, since the tournament draws an average of 150 State Cup Champions, 50 Regional Champions and 5 National Champions a year throughout the nine age groups.

The Tournament is held at 8 different complexes around the Greater Richmond Area with several main facilities including a 12-field all-synthetic turf facility at River City, a 10-field natural grass facility West Creek and an 11-field natural grass facility Striker Park. Each of these facilities are considered some of the best in the country. The combination of all three main facilities and additional multi-field facilities make the tournament one of the country's best.

Over 250 college coaches per weekend scout and recruit the participants.
