Checking In


Team check-in will take place on the Friday night, from 6 to 9

(4800 Merle Hay Road in Des Moines, right off Interstate 80).
Local teams, please check in on Friday night. If necessary, teams from outside the area may check in
at Cownie Soccer Park, at least an hour before their first match.
To check in your team at the soccer park, please report to the table in front of the concession stand
