If you're part of a team planning on coming to your first MMI:

Thank you for giving us a chance. We know there are a lot of tournaments you can choose from,
and we appreciate that a tournament weekend means a huge investment of the time and resources
for your team members and families. We strive to make your time with us a memorable experience.
 If you're part of a team that's returning to MMI:  


Thanks so much for your continued support! We're excited to have you along for the ride.
The best compliment for us as tournament host: teams and clubs like yours that keep coming back,
and - better yet - players, coaches and parents who spread the word-of-mouth to other members
of the soccer community, growing the excitement for the game.  


Thank you for your time, and I hope to see you at MMI!






ABOUT MMI: The Menace Midwest Invitational debuted in 2002. Hosted by the Des Moines Menace on Mother's Day weekend, this tournament for 11U-15U boys and girls' teams comes at a good time in the final month of teams' spring schedules. MMI is one of the Menace organization's five annual youth-soccer tournaments. The Menace, Iowa's Premier Soccer Team, also hosts the Just for Girls Tournament (the first full weekend in May), the JFG Fall Invitational  (the second-to-last full weekend in September), Kick around the Clock (an indoor, 3v3 event on Super Bowl weekend) and Menace Soccer FestiFall (a fun, 5v5 party held the second Saturday of November).

OUR GOAL is to provide a memorable tournament experience for all participants. We strive to be one of the most hospitable, most user-friendly youth-soccer tournaments around.

FEEDBACK: How was your MMI tournament experience? We are here to listen to your feedback (good, bad and in between), so that we can improve the tournament for all involved.  I welcome your calls and emails, any time. Thank you for sharing your time and your perspectives.
