3v3 tournaments are a great way to test your skills and enjoy a friendly day of competition. The 3v3 soccer format is fast and high scoring with players using their dribbling, shooting, and combination passing skills in a small field environment that calls for precision and creativity. The 3v3 tournament encourages good technique and quick decisions while allowing for creativity to be rewarded directly with goals.
Timbers Cup is a full-day event starting early morning with team check-in and lasts all day with teams playing 3 or more games throughout the day. A minimum of 3 games guaranteed. Families are free to watch and hang out or enjoy the fun activities set-up around the field. There is always something to do or watch and often families never the leave the park. However, players are free to leave with their parent or guardian (if under 18) and come back at any time.
