One of the largest and most competitive tournaments in the nation, The Grind is a USL National Qualifier for U13s-U11s. All teams were grouped by similar levels of play to help ensure all games were competitive. The Grind offers more playing time than most tournaments, offering athletes more opportunity to be seen by college coaches, giving teams the best value for their fee.
