– This indoor soccer tournament is open to affiliated competitive and REC teams from US Club Soccer, USYSA, and US Futsal, as well as competitive independent teams.
– The Rec Fest portion of the event (U5-U9) is open to recreational teams.
ROSTER SIZE & GUEST PLAYERS
The recommended maximum team roster size is 10 players for all teams. Officially, the maximum roster size is 10 players for U9 and below, and 14 players for U10 and above.
Team coaches are recommended to obtain some sort of written agreement (for their own records) from the clubs from which they are using guest players.
Double rostering is not allowed except for PLAY UP players, as long as these rules are followed:
(1). Player is included in two rosters only (no triple rostering, etc. is allowed). Managers must inform the organization about the double rostered players for proper inclusion in both rosters.
(2). The two teams have registered in two different age brackets and the player is a play-up in one of the teams (for example the double rostered player is a U11 girl and she will play in a U11 team and in a U12 team).
(3). Player can only play two games maximum in one given day
(4). At check-in, the team manager or designated person identifies the player as a double rostered player
Note 1: if two age brackets are combined, double rostering is still allowed as long as the requirements above are met.
Note 2: Failure to meet any of the requirements above will result in forfeits for all games, for the teams where the player has played.
Note 3: No play downs are allowed (low population areas teams may request an exception to this rule)
– For High School teams, U15, U16, U17 and U18 players can play in the same team.
– For college brackets, U19, U20, U21 and U22 players can play in the same team.
– Double play-ups are automatically allowed for all other ages.
Note: For 3 or more years play-ups, the team manager must explain the reasons to the tournament director at email@example.com or call 208-713-8924 before checking-in their teams. Reasons may include geography, skill level, or filling up the team. Please be ready to explain any other circumstances that will allow us to make a decision. Finally, a parent of the play up player in question who is finally approved to play will still have to fill up a consent form.
– A U14 player intending to play in the HS Varsity Bracket would be considered a 3 years play up and therefore he/she would have to obtain approval through the tournament director.
