Beat the Heat Festival
August 10-11, 2019

Atletico Flames is pleased to invite your club and teams to apply to our one-two day, pre-season event. We want this weekend to truly be a pre-season tune up that benefits all involved.

Our event is aimed at all ages from U9 through to U15 teams, both boys and girls. We will be very diligent in making sure that the games consist of leveled play, with both Premier and Classic levels. This event will give coaches the opportunity to evaluate their team as the season starts. Our goal is to make the event a fun and competitive environment for all teams.

Each team can apply to get 2 or 3 "friendlies" over the weekend at the most beautiful complex in the state of Kentucky! We have bermuda and turf fields for backup for 7v7, 9v9, and 11v11.   

We are also working on other activities to bring in for the weekend to make it more enjoyable for all. Look back for info on ways we may help with coach education, player challenges/competitions, give aways, fun vendors!! If you are interested in being a vendor, email

As tournament director, I take pride in trying to accommodate all scheduling needs/requests made by all coaches and teams. I will do my best to making everything work for all involved. 

The tournament committee is committed to making this event a positive one for you and your team.
