Every year Decatur plays host to high-caliber tournaments and events such as the AYSA State Cup Spring and Fall, and the Olympic Development Program tryouts. We are known not only nationally, but also internationally for our state-of-the art soccer complex. The Jack Allen Recreation Complex has 11 fields with laser-graded certified sports turf and a computerized irrigation system. To add to that, we have seven other soccer venues within close proximity, including Wilson Morgan Park and Point Mallard Park, that provide an additional nine fields, making Decatur ideal for tournaments large and small.
