The tournament was started as an opportunity for my daughter’s team, SRFC Lady Strikers ’91 Premier. We wanted to be able to compete against other national level soccer teams on our home turf. We only had one age division for the first few years. As the years went on, the tournament grew. We added divisions and invited teams from around the country to come and compete in our tournament. Teams from Hawaii, Texas, New York, California, Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Oklahoma, Kentucky, Illinois, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Utah, Florida, Georgia, and many other states have come to compete in the small town of Smyrna, Tennessee. This year, 2016, 63 teams from seven states and ages ranging from U11, U-14 to U-19 are participating in our showcase. Region 3 Invitational Showcase is the perfect way to kick off your outdoor season!
