Meltdown "Friendly" Tournament

February 10-11, 2018

A Fun Tournament for Everyone

After a hard winter, the AYSO Meltdown is just the thing to defrost your players and allow them to shake off the ice and get ready for the spring season. The AYSO Meltdown "Friendly" Tournament is held each year in the heart of the Southwest at the foot of the Sandia Mountains just north of Albuquerque. Just an hour from historic Santa Fe, Albuquerque is the perfect setting for a February tournament. Numerous tourist attractions and ski areas make Albuquerque the perfect place for fun, on and off the soccer field!

Come and play! Ride the Sandia Peak Tram and SKI! visit Old Town! Visit Santa Fe! A good time is waiting to be had by all!

 

Albuquerque is one of the few locations where you can play soccer in the morning and ski in the afternoon!
