May 5-6, 2018 Player REGISTRATION IS Here

Back in 1996, Adrian Eyre started Soccer In Sun Tournaments. Alex Trettin stepped in to “Keep The Dream Alive” after Adrian’s unfortunate and sudden passing in 1999. We honor Adrian’s memory by making fair play our first priority and constantly curating the quality of our participating teams, the competition between them, securing the best available fields, and taking pride in our dedicated staff. We look forward to seeing you on the pitch with the best soccer tournaments in the US, 22 years running!
