About four dozen Colombian youth soccer players are in Duluth this weekend to practice their skills as well as explore the city before the 30th Annual Schwan's USA Cup tournament in Blaine, Minnesota next Tuesday.

This is the second year this Colombian Youth Soccer Program has stayed in Duluth on the UMD campus. The head coach of the program, Diego Bolivar, said last year was so great that they had to come back.

"The people who came last year were so happy," said Bolivar. "When they told their parents about the place, all of them spoke very good things about the beautiful lake, the beautiful nature and especially the people because they got the opportunity to share with the community. It was so great."
