In the first round of the 2017 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup, the Menace welcomes AFC Cleveland, the defending National Premier Soccer League champions.
Boys and girls are invited to register for the chance to be part of the Menace in the 2017-18 season (and hopefully beyond!).
The Menace's WPSL home schedule includes matches played in West Des Moines, Grimes, Indianola and Johnston.
The Menace's pursuit of a fourth straight division title begins with a May 20 home match against WSA Winnipeg.
Due to an unfortunate, season-ending injury, Rafinha will not be coming to Des Moines in 2017. Thank you for your understanding and your support!
The Menace family mourns the loss of Derek Cisneros, a member of the Menace Academy 13U boys team. His coaches and teammates remember Derek as a fun kid who loved soccer.
Congratulations to underdog Juventus (11U-12U) and top-seeded Athletico Madrid (13U-14U) on hoisting the Menace Champions League cup on March 4.
