Rockford, Illinois will host the Kohl's US Youth Soccer American Cup, the largest recreational youth soccer festival in the United States, at the Sportscore during May 31 – June 1.  The Illinois Youth Soccer Association Boys and Girls Under-8 through Under-19 Kohl's US Youth Soccer American Cup will bring together 500 teams on 12 soccer fields for the annual soccer tournament held in Rockford, Illinois.
The Kohl's American Cup offers youth soccer players an opportunity to play in a high-quality tournament in a fun, family-like atmosphere.  The program was started in 2000 as an avenue to highlight recreational soccer players and promote fair play.  Players receive equal opportunities and benefits within their level of play, with an emphasis on participation, rather than competition.
