Dubuque Soccerfest 2014

The AYSO region in Dubuque organizes an annual soccer tournament for all AYSO soccer regions in the area. The Dubuque tournament is for balanced teams, and it's close, so it is a great opportunity for players that have never been to a soccer tournament!
Last year, fifteen teams of our AYSO region went up to Dubuque to participate in the tournament, and they had a blast!
