Park City Extreme Cup Soccer Tournment
The Park City Extreme Cup Soccer Tournament is one of the largest sanctioned U.S. Youth Soccer tournament for boys and girls U9 through U18 in the State of Utah; U.S. Club Soccer teams are also eligible to participate. Entry to the Extreme Cup is highly competitive and the Selection Committee reserves the right to choose teams that will give the best balance and level of play within each division. Priority is generally given to out-of-state and out-of-region teams that require lodging in Park City, as well as early applicants.
As in prior years, we anticipate approximately 50% of the entrants ages U12 and older will be Premier or Division I teams, although the Extreme Cup takes pride in providing competitive play for lower level teams as well. In addition to hosting top competitive teams in Platinum and Gold Divisions, last year's tournament also offered play in Silver, Bronze and even Copper Divisions in some age groups. Each team is guaranteed at least three games in pool play.
For the third consecutive year, nearly 200 teams were turned away in 2014. To accommodate the growing demand of teams wishing to participate in The Extreme Cup, the 2015 tournament will again be played on 38 fields at thirteen outstanding venues in Park City and the surrounding area. Park City's fields are widely acknowledged as the best in the State; the U.S. Men’s National Team and ReAL Salt Lake have even trained on some of these same fields. Games outside of Park City will be held in the Heber Valley and Oakley; these venues are no more than 20 minutes from Park City. A limited number of night games are played under the lights.
The skies are perpetually blue and the temperatures mild during the summer in Park City. The hillsides are covered with wildflowers, aspen groves and hundreds of miles of trails for hiking and biking ~ the only things missing are the bugs. Four world-class resorts: Deer Valley, Park City, Canyons and Utah Olympic Park offer adventures ranging from scenic lift rides, horseback riding and family activity zones to thrilling zip lines and summer bobsled rides. Live music is everywhere with free concerts offered frequently throughout the town and Deer Valley’s outdoor amphitheater attracting big names ranging from Grace Potter & The Nocturnals and Esperanza Spalding to the Utah Symphony performing the 1812 Overture. The Kimball Arts Festival lines Main Street during the weekend of the tournament, with plenty of shopping, grazing and dining available for everyone. At the other end of town, the Flying Ace All-Stars are sure to entertain with their aerial acrobatic show at the Olympic Park Splash Pool. And over in Heber Valley is the Wasatch County Fair, complete with rides and a rodeo!
