GotSoccer Platinum Level-Rated Tournament


"The Discovery Cup provides a great level of competition at all age groups and an unbelievable playing environment at the Soccerplex. Our teams really look forward to this event and an opportunity to tour the DC area is just a bonus."
Hue Menzies, FL Krush Black, U17G 2014 Region III Champions

“The McLean Soccer club has supported the Discovery Cup tournament for the past three years and have been a part of this growth to what is now a unique and exciting tournament. All of our top team teams, including our ECNL teams find this tournament to be a very good college showcasing opportunity. It is easier for college coaches to scout, giving all the games are at the same location, and the quality of the fields, allows for the players to be technically efficient. Here we get a chance to play quality teams that we typically don't encounter. Often you can be in brackets where the teams are all from different states."
Clyde Watson, McLean Soccer ECNL and Girls Technical Director, United Soccer Coaches Youth National Coach of the Year

“The Discovery Cup is one of the best tournaments we have attended. Having all of the games in one location, on amazing fields was a key reason we choose to attend. The tournament is well organized, and the competition was very good.”
Kim Wyant, Head Coach, NYU Men's Soccer

“As a former collegiate coach with over 24 years of experience including the last 15 at the University of Notre Dame, I wanted to endorse one of the best youth tournaments out there, the Discovery Cup. I have watched this tournament grow from it’s infancy, and now it has become one of the premier tournaments on the youth circuit. It’s tournament director is the BEST in the country bar none, Louise Waxler, who has a wealth of experience in soccer at all levels in the US. I would highly recommend this tournament to any youth team looking for quality organization and competition, and to any college coach who needs a place to see some of the best talent available.”
Randy Waldrum, Head Coach, University of Pittsburgh; former Head Coach, NWSL Houston Dash
