The Cherry Capital Cup – May 16-17, 2020
We are all set for another Spring Tournament up in Traverse City at the Cherry Capital Cup. Schedules are now available here.
Closer to the date, we’ll be announcing where the Rapids HQ will be – a central place for our players, coaches and families to congregate. This year we’ll have competitions, raffles and games throughout the tournament, and Rapids staff on hand to help out and answer questions.
The Cherry Capital Cup is a youth soccer tournament hosted in the beautiful Northern Michigan town of Traverse City. The Tournament was started in the early 90’s as the Summer Solstice Tournament, which took place in June. As the popularity of Traverse City grew, the Tournament was moved to May and renamed the Cherry Capital Cup in 2005. The Tournament has 200+ teams compete each fall at the 23 field Keystone Soccer Complex and the fantastic Coastguard fields.
The rain couldn’t stop us and neither could the other teams!
8 Champions and 4 Runners up makes Rapids FC the most successful club in Traverse City this year, beating Revolution in second (5 Champions and 5 finalists). As you can see below, the trophies were spread right across the age groups and for both boys and girls teams.

Thanks must go to everyone involved, the parents for their support and smiles in the rain, the coaches and managers for their teaching and organization, but most of all the players. The players are what this is all about and so many of ours played their hearts out to bring a great tournament to a successful conclusion. We hope you all had a great experience.
