Two weeks ago Anna and I embarked on the trip of a lifetime. Participating in International Cup 2018 was an incredible experience for both me as a parent and Anna as a player. Playing Fastpitch softball against international teams, meeting and making friends with wonderful families/players, making future connections and getting to experience Amsterdam and Paris was all part of a jam packed week that we will never forget. We encourage all young ladies who loves the game to consider participating in future Cup events. It is worth every penny!Rhonda Norby
This trip was such an amazing experience. I had so much fun meeting new people both on my team and the teams we played. I’m glad that my team and I got along together great, just like we all knew each other before the trip. All of the staff were helpful in getting us where we needed/wanted to go. I would definitely recommend The Cup experience to other people I know.Emily Madzelan
This was a most amazing experience for Katie and myself! Trip of a lifetime and great softball! Fun watching the girls learn how to slide indoors. Avengers were awesome and finished as the top American team! 🇺🇸🇺🇸 These girls came together as strangers and made life long friends in a very short time. Her coaches were awesome and went above and beyond for these girls! The Cup staff adequately prepared us for everything we encountered and were always available to us with answers to any questions. Loved touring Amsterdam and Paris!Heather Lookabill Horne
The Cup was a terrific experience for Ali as a person and a ball player -- and for John and me as parents and spectators. We loved exploring Paris, Amsterdam, and Rotterdam, getting to see players from across Europe, and meeting families from across America. Indoor softball was wild:)Shary Taylor Gentry
Kirt's warmth, humor, and sportsmanship were incredible. Monte was kind and fun as a coach. Avengers kicked butt. EVERYTHING was amazing. Thank you!
