Midway thru the season Circle City has continued to show why it's one of the top clubs in the Country. Circle City 18 Nike Elite, 15 Nike Elite and 14 Nike Elite have all qualified for the Open Division of Nationals held in Dallas the end of June and beginning of July. These three teams will compete in a Division with the top 32 teams in the country.
