26th Annual Glastonbury Spring Warm-Up Tournament Invitation
This year the tournament will be held Friday April 26, 2019, Saturday April 27, 2019 and Sunday April 28, 2019 in Glastonbury, Connecticut. The tournament is sanctioned by the Connecticut Junior Soccer Association, which is affiliated with USYSA.
The tournament is open to boys and girls teams from U-9 to U-14/15. Teams will be divided into 4 divisions per age group, and winners are selected by a point system for each division. All teams will play 4 games in a round robin format. The U-11 through U-14/15 age groups are competitive divisions and trophies will be awarded to all division winners and medals for second place. The U-9 and U-10 age groups are non-competitive divisions, and all participants will receive a participation award for playing in the tournament. The U-9 and U-10 games will be played in 7v7 format for two 25 minute halves. The U-11 and U-12 games will be played in 9v9 format for two 25 minute halves. The U-13 and U-14/15 games will be played in 11v11 format for two 30 minute halves. Each game will be staffed with a referee and two linesmen. It is customary that all players exchange team/club patches after each game.
The tournament will have Classic, League, and Premier level teams from all over New England, New York and New Jersey. The tournament selection committee makes every effort to create balanced divisions with an opportunity to play teams from different areas. The selection criteria for acceptance into the tournament are based on team record, level of competition, and the adequate distribution of teams applying. An effort is made to accommodate game schedules with travel plans for out of state teams, but we recommend that out of state teams plan on lodging for both Friday and Saturday nights. We have negotiated very favorable rates with many of the local hotels. Please see our web-site (www.glastonburysoccer.org) for more details.
The web-based application process will begin UPDATE DATE HERE. Please use this
link https://www.gotsport.com/forms/app/?eventid=63840. Please note that each team will need to establish a registration, with a Logon ID and Password. You will receive a confirmation email from GotSoccer once you have registered. If you do not receive an email make sure your email address is correct.
NOTE -- Your application will not be considered complete without the following information:
- Each team must provide separate and unique contact information in order to avoid scheduling conflicts once the tournament seeding and scheduling are underway.
- Each team must submit a roster along with its application. We are attempting to streamline the registration process and this will aid greatly in that effort.
- Each team must indicate its desired placement (Premier, Most Competitive, Competitive or Least Competitive). This information is used when we are placing teams in divisions. Due to number of teams we cannot review every team’s individual record. We do not guarantee you will get the placement you request but we will make every effort to place according to your assessment of your team.
Entry fees for teams playing 7v7 (U9-U10) and 9v9 (U11-U12) will be $575, and $625 for those teams playing 11v11 (U13-U14/15). This fee is non-refundable unless the team is not admitted. Applications must be submitted and pre-paid using our online registration system by UPDATE DATE HERE. Acceptance and rejection e-mails will then follow by March 15, 2018. If you know of other teams who would be interested in applying to the tournament, please be sure to have them register or e-mail us at
