Memorial Cup

The Indiana Memorial Cup was inspired by the loss of Rachael Fiege, who began her soccer career at the early age of 5.  When permission to name the cup after Rachael was requested, her parents, Rick and Angela Fiege, stated that they would be honored but asked that the event be expanded to honor all of Indiana’s youth soccer players and referees who are no longer with us.   


Soccer Across America

Soccer Across America is designed to introduce the sport of soccer to youngsters living in communities not yet served by existing clubs and leagues. Focused on making soccer available to lower-income children in under-served communities, Soccer Across America provides soccer training and administrative guidance to players and organizations who might otherwise not be exposed to the sport.
