What is the Mayors Cyber Cup?
The California Mayors Cyber Cup are regional competitions across California where cyber teams compete for their city to bring home the coveted perpetual trophy.
Why is This Important?
Cyber competitions are activities that bring cybersecurity awareness to communities and build strong and ethical character in the students who participate. This, in turn, helps build a future cyber workforce for all cities in California.
Who Should Attend?
The Mayors Cyber Cup is open to any team, not just those registered with the AFA for CyberPatriot. Click or touch each item below to see why you should attend.

California Cyberhub advisors and staff will be on hand to help get you plugged into our wide network of support and community. That makes starting and hosting teams much easier than doing it on your own.
After seeing the impact these programs have on the kids and coaches, you will be sponsoring a team before you know it and encouraging your tech employees to act as mentors for your sponsored team. Nothing beats the prestige of your team bringing home the Mayors Cup to your city.
