Blind and Sons adidas Cup Series

The Blind and Sons / adidas Cup Series is a tournament-style event that teams can compete in as an alternative to the High School Showcase. Teams who choose the Cup Series will be placed in two groups of six and play two games on Friday and three games on Saturday against the other teams in the 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
