Sure, the club teams get to travel, but did you ever wish there was a soccer tournament for recreational teams at a family-friendly location?

This is a recreational soccer tournament for CYSL U12 and U14 boys and girls teams.

The main purpose of this event is for all players and their entire families to have fun.

The 47th Annual University of Okoboji Classic Invitational Soccer Tournament will take place June 8-9, 2024.  This is a FAMILY-ORIENTED RECREATIONAL TOURNAMENT, designed to promote the Iowa Great Lakes area and your CYSL soccer club.  No select teams are allowed. 

This notice is for informational purposes only.  It does not constitute an invitation to the tournament.  If your team is interested in participating in this tournament, you must register by April 13th, 2024The total number of team will be limited in each division.  Registrations will be confirmed after registration closes.  No verbal responses will be accepted!  If interested, please respond by registering your team on the Tournament Registration page on Tourney Machine.  All registrations will be handled via this website, starting March 16th, 2024.

There are four age groups participating in the tournament, henceforth called divisions.  There may be more than one bracket of games in each age division.  The divisions are:

  • Under 14 Boys

U12 will play 9 v 9; U14 will play 11 v 11.  The maximum number of players on each team will be 18 for U12 teams and 22 for U14 teams.  Players on a team must be from the same club and must be registered for their own league and play on a team sponsored by such club.

We are in need of Certified Assistant Referees!!   If you know of anyone interested, please contact David Dertzo at  More info can be found here

Given the uncertainty of the potential quality of the fields at the Bedell Family YMCA (Spirit Lake is more prone to flooding than Milford), please be aware that we guarantee that each team will play a minimum of two games, but have every intention of having teams play three games if possible.​

We hope you all stay safe and look forward to seeing you for the Annual University of Okoboji Invitational Soccer Tournament.
