College Coaches – Register to Attend This Event


We invite you to attend this year’s Bethesda Premier Cup Tournament - the Girls November 9, 10 and 11 and the Boys on November 16, 17 and 18 at the nationally renowned Maryland SoccerPlex.  You’ll be able to scout players in the U16, U17, U18 and U19 age groups all playing on premier fields in one location.  Teams from more than a dozen states will be attending this top-ranked tournament giving you an opportunity to move toward completion of your scouting of the 2018 graduates or get an early start of the class of 2019.  The U16, U17, U18 and U19 age groups will play a full and firm schedule of three 80-minute round-robin games, enabling you to know in advance who’ll be playing on which field when, without the uncertainty of game results affecting the schedule.

College coaches should sign up for the tournament by going to GotSoccer.com or Bethesdasoccer.org.  Coaches that sign in advance for the tournament will receive a complimentary player profile book produced by CaptainU that can be picked up at the College Coaches tent located near Field #20 at the Maryland SoccerPlex. 

This year, each game at the SoccerPlex will be filmed by our exclusive video provider, GameTimeFootage, which will provide post-event games to footage through its on-demand platform, Free of charge, to all registered college coaches.

We will send teams their acceptances for the tournament by October 3.  Many have already entered their player data, others will follow shortly after acceptance.  This permits you to do your homework at your convenience in advance of the tournament.  Game schedules will also be posted by early November at http://www.bethesdasoccer.org so you can plan your scouting in advance instead of on the event or day of the games.

Thank you for your interest in the Bethesda Premier Cup Tournament.  We look forward to seeing you in November.
