The adidas Cup Series is a typical tournament-style event played the same weekend as the adidas National Soccer Showcase. Teams selecting this format will be placed in two groups of six and will play two games on Friday and three games on Saturday versus each team in your group. The winner and runner-up in each group will then play for the adidas National Showcase Red Cup Series Championship in a semi-final and final match on Sunday. Teams placing 3rd and 4th will play for the White Cup and teams placing 5th and 6th will play for the Blue Cup. Prizes will be awarded to the winning adidas National Showcase Cup Series Champion players and head coach.
U13-14 Travel Team and Middle School
One of the factors that makes for a quality community based program is the development of a seamless transition between the Travel and Middle School programs in to the high school. We are now offering the U13-14 Travel and 7th and 8th grade Middle School teams the opportunity to participate in the adidas National Soccer Showcase to get a taste for what it will be like when your younger players ultimately get to the high school. Teams will receive five games (2 Friday-3 Saturday or 3 Saturday-2 Sunday). The cost is just $395. Rosters are unlimited. Two referees per game. 40 minute games.
Junior/Senior Spotlight Games
One of the important features that makes the adidas National High School Soccer Showcase unique is the Junior/Senior Spotlight games(classes of 2015 and 2014). Over 100 college coaches regularly attend this portion of the Showcase and a thousand or more fans have jammed the Ehrnfelt Soccer Complex to cheer on their favorite players. Each participating team may send their top Juniors and Seniors to participate in these Spotlight games, scheduled to be played on Saturday evening. Over 900 top Juniors and Seniors competed in this event in 2011. Our popular 7-v-7 and 8-v-8 formats will continue to be used in 2013.
Freshmen Top Flight Game
A select number of the top incoming Freshmen are afforded the opportunity to compete in this one-of-a-kind game highlighting the best of the best in the class of 2017. Start your high school career off by playing in this unique event that will start you off on the right foot as you begin your high school career. The players will play in an 11-v-11 format with small roster sizes and a chance to play in three 36 minute halves on Friday evening.
Sophomore Coaches Clinic
The adidas National High School Soccer Showcase has created a unique opportunity for the class of 2016 to showcase their talents by participating in the Sophomore Coaches Clinic. Nationally renowned college coaches are sought out to implement a team development model of training with a final “test” of what the players have learned in an 11-v-11 game played on Saturday evening. The number of players accepted in this clinic is limited.
