Pre-Tournament

Coach/Manager:

Congratulations on your team’s acceptance into the 2017 Surf City Cup!

Please take a moment to read through this page carefully, it will assist you with any questions you may have. A checklist is also available on the website to assist you.

The Tournament Committee advises you to immediately do the following:

  • Submit travel documents for USYSA teams outside of Region IV through your appropriate sanctioning organization. For US Club a copy of your US Club roster printed from the US Club website. Participation in the Tournament is conditioned upon proper receipt of the appropriate travel documentation.
  • Ensure your player roster in your on-line application is complete and up-to-date at all times.
  • MANDATORY REGISTRATION – Teams must check in at the MANDATORY REGISTRATION. Check in minimum 90 minutes before your first game at the fields. However, if you have an 8am Game, check in at 7am will suffice. Check in tents will be located at tournament headquarters and/or the venue where your first game is being played. Failure to check in will result in automatic disqualification (without reimbursement) from the tournament.

All of the players on the team must play with the proper affiliation documentation (USYSA, US Club, and Super Y League). Each player must be playing under the same affiliation documentation. There cannot be a mixture of player cards from different affiliations.
