The Grand Rapids Crew Juniors proudly announces the 6th annual Grand Rapids Crew Cup, August 22-24th 2014. Teams will compete from all across the Midwest and Canada for the prestigious Crew Cup. Our main facility is the state-of-the-art MVP Fieldhouse and additional sites will be all within 20 mins of our central location, with Hotels all located next to MVP. The other main sites are Brewer Park and Riverfront Park which boasts 8 grass fields each in great condition. Only local GVSA teams will play Friday night games, unless otherwise requested.
This tournament provides an excellent pre-State Cup and pre-season event with quality competition and venues and stress free check-in at MVP. All coaches will be accommodated to avoid game conflicts. The tournament is sanctioned by MSYSA and US Soccer. Experience the great atmosphere of downtown Grand Rapids and we are close to the West Michigan Beaches if you have time between games. The Hotels are all right on 28th St close to the Mall so there is plenty to do between games!
In our first year we hosted 125 teams from all of the state and beyond, this figure rose to 175 in 2010. In 2011 we had 220 teams and in 2012 we had 300. Last year we had over 320 teams making this the fastest growing tournament in the Midwest!! Due to the success of these tournaments and also our Crew Spring Classic's in March, we have had a lot of early club interest in this years event. We expect to attract over 340 teams and make this tournament even better than before!
The Showcase segment we ran for the past two years for the U16-U18G was a huge success. We had very good competition and lots of representation from many Midwest college coaches. All top level showcase games are played at the same location which give the coaches an excellent opportunity to scout multiple players.
Look forward to seeing you in Grand Rapids this Summer!
Team acceptance to the Crew Cup will be completed by the "Selection Committee". Notifications are sent to all teams. The selection process is assisted by the information provided to the tournament on your application- example - team records, level of play, out of town/state vs local teams (to achieve a balance), performance in post-season tournaments including the "Crew Cup", etc. It is important to provide as much information as possible to assist the committee in properly evaluating your team. Cashing of the entry fee does not indicate acceptance to the tournament.
The 2014 Crew Cup has teamed up with its official housing service, Traveling Teams, to bring your team the utmost service for its housing needs. This will help make the process of reserving rooms easier and more reliable. If you wish to participate in the 2014 Crew Cup, you must use one of the hotels provided by Traveling Teams (unless you are a commuting team).
