How do I determine my age group for this tournament?

After August 1 all age groups change to a new age group, and since this tournament is after August 1, your team will play in the age group they'll be during the upcoming fall season.


What birthday cut off are you using for teams in the tournament?

We follow the USSF guidelines by using January 1 - December 31 age groups, aka birth year.


Where are the games played?

All 4 games will be played at one of the following locations: Sachem, Smithtown, or West Islip. The location will be determined during the time of scheduling to accommodate as many requests, such as coaches with multiple teams, as possible. We will make every effort to try to schedule coaches with multiple teams at the same location.


What time will the games be played?

Because scheduling is a complex task with many coaches entering multiple teams, and certain time restrictions, we do our best to accommodate as many requests. However, keep in mind they're requests. If you do have a time restraint, please make sure you enter it in the comments or email us, and we'll do our utmost best to work with you. If we can't work it out for you, we'll issue a refund. Due to the multiple requests, we usually complete our scheduling, which will tell you what time the games will be, about a week prior to the tournament.


When is the registration deadline?

Our registration deadline is July 31. Should we have a few brackets that need a team to complete it, we reserve the right to consider those teams past the deadline. To ensure consideration, make sure you register your team ASAP. The tournament committee reserves the right to decline a team.


Can I bring guest players?

You are permitted to bring a maximum of 4 guest players for U13 and older and a maximum of 3 guest players for U12 and younger, as long as you can provide proof of date of birth, by either supplying a player pass (US Club or USYSA or another local league) or a birth certificate.


Can my team still play if we haven't received our player passes yet?

Yes, we accept digital player passes as well, or you can bring a birth certificate for every player whose player pass you don't have (yet). Make sure you upload/bring your official roster, so we can verify that those players belong on your team rather than are guest players (which are limited in number).


What day is registration night for the coaches?

To make it easier on coaches, we've eliminated registration night. Instead show up at least 30 minutes prior to (we recommend 1 hour before) your first game to check in your team at the registration table at each venue. This year you'll be able to check-in online, allowing you to upload your players' passes and/or birth certificates along with your team's roster and medical release forms (which do not need to be notarized), saving you time on game day.


What documentation is required?

You'll be able to check-in online, allowing you to upload your players' passes and/or birth certificates along with your team's roster and medical release forms (which do not need to be notarized), saving you time on game day.


Do you have no header rules for certain age groups?

We adhere to the initiative the USSF issued, and therefore all age groups U11 and under are not permitted to intentionally head the ball. For more information on rules, please check the Rules link at the top of this page.


Is this a patch exchange tournament?

Teams have the option to exchange patches if they'd like, but it is not required. We suggest that you check with your opposing coach.


Do we have to pay referee fees on the field?

No, your entry fee includes referee fees. Referees are provided by LISRA.
