COVID-19: We will be following all CJSA COVID Guidelines throughout Tournament play:
The tournament is open to boys and girls teams from town travel teams and premier/elite club teams, U-9 to U-14/15. Teams will be placed into divisions and winners are selected by a point system for each division. All teams will play 4 gamesin 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. 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. It is customary that U9 & U10 players exchange team/club patches after each game.
The tournament will consist of Classic, League level, 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.
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, please make sure your email address is correct.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions and frequently changing guidelines regarding youth sports play, fees will not be charged until the tournament committee confirms that the tournament can proceed. Teams must still register and provide all required information and documentation to reserve their spot.
