The Quad City Strikers Soccer Club’s U14 and U13 boys teams, and their U16 girls team, all won their respective divisions in the state’s Presidents Cup tournaments and as such will represent the state of Iowa playing against other top-ranked teams from around the country at the Midwest Regional Presidents Cup competition, June 16-20 in St. Louis, Mo.

Quad City Strikers U14 boys, U13 boys and U16 girls are each the #1 ranked soccer teams in their respective divisions in Iowa.

In addition to the Presidents Cup tournament, the U14 boys team will be competing in the prestigious USA Cup in Minneapolis in July against international competition. The annual competition draws more than 1,200 clubs from around the world and is only open to eligible top-ranked clubs.
