Countdown to Concord Cup XXIV

See you on May 20-21, 2017


 

Concord Cup XXIV Registration Now Open

Welcome to Concord Cup XXIV. This is our 24th year offering a youth soccer tournament play hosted by Concord AYSO, Diablo Futbol Club, Mt. Diablo Soccer and the city of Concord.

We look forward to you joining us on the weekend of May 20-21, 2017 in Concord.

 


    This tournament is unrestricted. Teams registered in good

    standing with any U.S. Soccer Federation affiliate

    are eligible to apply.


 

Entry fees for Concord Cup XXIII are: $495 for Under 10 teams and $595 for all other age groups through U19. (Entry fees will increase $25 after March 1, 2017.) The tournament is open to AYSO, US Club Soccer and USYSA/CYSA teams.

Age groups for teams in Concord Cup this year only are determined in 2 ways:

    For AYSO teams, age groups are determined by the oldest player on the roster as of Aug. 1, 2016 (Season 2016-2017).

    For club and AYSO Elite team brackets age groups will be used on a calendar year basis (For example, rosters of players born in 2005 are Under 12).

    We will be changing our entire age group setup to birth years for Concord Cup XXV in May 2018.


Remember that the main factors in determining team acceptance to Concord Cup are the date of application, receipt of entry fee payment and receipt of and acceptance of the names of two volunteer referees your team provides for game assignments.

Please read the following carefully:

To register online and participate in Concord Cup XXIV you must follow these guidelines:

1. Contact information including 2 (or more) different email addresses per team for Team Coach, Assistant Coach or Team Manager. It is required that when completing the team information page, you have a minimum of 2 separate email addresses. These names with DIFFERENT phone numbers and email addresses CAN NOT be from the same household!  If you are using a spam filter, it is your responsibility to add ConCupReg@gmail.com and jay@lbbadvertising.com to your safe list.  There were occasions in past seasons when information was sent to teams and they claimed to have not received it. 100% of Concord Cup communication to our teams will be via email.

2. Our referee requirements remain the same: Each team must provide the names AND email addresses of 2 (or more) referees who will complete a minimum of 6 assignments between them. Concord Cup referees are not paid; however, we provide all referees completing at least 3 assignments a commemorative polo shirt and those who do at least 6 games with a special gift. Team applications will not be accepted without the names and email addresses of the two (or more) referees are submitted online through GotSoccer on this website.

3. All payment of Concord Cup entry fees must be by check. AYSO Regions (not teams) must submit checks for their teams. US Club Soccer and USYSA teams may submit a team check. Please include team name, gender and age group on every check. All checks are payable to Concord Cup Soccer and must be mailed to:

   Concord Cup Soccer

   573 Mt. Olivet Pl.

   Clayton, CA 94517-1609

Do not mail your application in any postal format requiring a signature. Make sure the team, gender and age group are written on check! DO NOT INCLUDE team rosters, travel papers, etc. with your application and payment. All those documents are needed at May 19 check-in.

No application will be processed until a check has been received and deposited. Checks will be deposited upon receipt. Any team which applies and is not accepted will be sent a refund check upon notification that they are not in the tournament, unless they wish to remain on a waiting list.

Any returned check will be charged an additional $35 and that resubmission of the entry fee (including the extra $35) must be by a cashier’s check or money order.

Entry fees increase by $25 after March 1, 2017.

4. A team which withdraws more than 30 days before the start of the tournament (prior to April 20, 2017) will receive a full refund. If a team withdraws after that date and is replaced by another paid team in the same age/gender bracket, they may be given a refund at the discretion of the tournament committee (minus monies paid for items purchased or costs incurred by tournament). If the withdrawing team cannot be replaced by another team paying full entry fee, no refund will be given.

5. AYSO ROSTER SIZE --There are strict AYSO National roster limits and playing rules for teams playing in a bracket with AYSO teams.

Maximum roster size per age group in AYSO brackets is: U10 (10 players; games 7v7), U12 (12 players; games 9v9), U14 (15 players; games 11v11), U16 & U19 (18 players; games 11v11).

For all games through U14 with AYSO teams, players must play a minimum of half the game (2 quarters). AYSO Elite teams who apply to take part in a mixed bracket with club teams but end up in an AYSO-only bracket must adhere to these rules on roster size!

Please do not list more players on your roster than your age group allows!  In GotSoccer, limit player’s names to 24 characters including hyphens, apostrophes and blanks.  Include ID number for each player.

6. US CLUB SOCCER/USYSA ROSTER SIZE -- For brackets that include US Club Soccer and USYSA teams (and AYSO Elite teams wishing to play in that bracket), maximum roster size per age group is: U10 (14 players; games 7v7), U11-U12 (16 players; games 9v9), U13-U19 (18 players; games 11v11).

Please do not submit more players on your roster than your age group allows!  In GotSoccer, limit player’s names to 24 characters including hyphens, apostrophes and blanks.  Include ID number for each player.

7. Priority Entry Deadline is March 1, 2017. After March 1, 2017, the entry fee for all teams increases by $25.

8. ROSTERS -- Teams must submit player names for roster by April 20. Changes can be made to the roster through May 15 so that game cards are complete and accurate with player’s names and uniform numbers. Once you are registered in GotSoccer your team will have a log-in name so that you can adjust your contact information or roster.

9. TEAM CHECK-IN – Mandatory team check-in is at the Hilton Concord Hotel on Friday, May 19, from 6-9 p.m. There are no exceptions to that check-in date. Special arrangements will be made for Regions or Club wishing to check-in a number of teams at the same time on May 19.

10.  TEAM ACCEPTANCE – Generally speaking, we begin accepting teams in late March or early April. Some teams may be accepted before then based on full flights (usually 8 teams). Until we get closer to the tournament the only communication teams will receive from Concord Cup after a team applies and gets email confirmation of the application is if we have not received payment or referee information or there are questions about the proper age group and flight teams should be in.

Complete tournament rules and procedures will be posted at a later date. We look forward to having you join us for Concord Cup XXIV.
