Hello there, and thanks for your interest in the Just for Girls tournaments!
My name is Charlie Bales, and I am the tournament director for these events, hosted by the Des Moines Menace.
I'm here to help. So, please feel free to call (515-457-6285) or email me any time.
If you haven't done so already, I'd also encourage you to take a moment to read over
this page, which attempts to answer some basic questions you might have.
If you're part of a team planning on coming to your first Just for Girls event:
Thank you for giving us a chance. We know there are a lot of tournaments you can choose from, and we acknowledge
that a tournament weekend means a huge investment of the time and resources for your team members and families.
We strive to make your JFG weekend a memorable experience that everyone in your group will feel good about.
If you're part of a team that's returning to JFG:
Thanks so much for your continued support! We're excited to have you along for the ride. The best compliment for us as
the tournament host: teams and clubs like yours that keep coming back, and - better yet - players, coaches and parents who
spread the word-of-mouth to other members of the soccer community, growing the excitement for the game.
Thank you for your time, and I hope to see you at JFG!
ABOUT JFG TOURNAMENTS: With a history that dates back to 1993, the Just for Girls Tournament is a spring-soccer tradition that's celebrated its 25th anniversary. In recent years, JFG ("The Midwest's Premier Cup") has hosted teams from 10 states across the region, as far away as North Dakota, Oklahoma and Indiana. The Just for Girls Fall Invitational debuted in 2006 and has grown to host more than 100 teams every year since 2009.
OUR GOAL is to provide a memorable tournament experience for all participants. We strive to be one of the most hospitable, user-friendly youth-soccer tournaments around.
