Welcome to the Fall 2015-2016 VYSA State Cup
Preliminary information on the new VYSA Champions League Format...

Entry into the National Championship Series of US Youth Soccer begins with State Cup Competition. The Fall age groups competing for the State Championship are U15, U16, U17 and U18 boys and girls. The calendar with administration dates and play dates is posted. 

This year the State Cup competition will include the new VYSA Champions League format. The games will be played single elimination beginning with the round of 64, round of 32 and round of 16. At the quarter finals, with the top 8 teams remaining in the competition, we will begin the Champions League format play. 

Each team in the quarter finals will play 3 games tournament style, one game against each team in their bracket. The first bracket will be the first 4 teams and the second bracket will be the 2nd 4 teams listed on the bracket sheet in the round of 8 (or quarter final round).

The top two teams out of each bracket will advance to the Semifinals. 

Play within the 3 game set for each team playing the VYSA Champions League format will be as follows:  

2 games of the 3 game set will be played at VSTC in Fredericksburg over one weekend, a Saturday and a Sunday game, and the 3rd game will be played in the Home and Away format with the team holding the higher seed going into the quarter final round playing home.  

The game dates for each age group will be made final after the applications have been received and numbers of teams in each age group has been determined, but a preliminary schedule has been established.  Teams must always be available to play on any assigned weekends listed as play dates on the State Cup calendar.

All single elimination games required for each age group will be played prior to the game schedule below and these game dates are on September 12, 19, 24 and October 3. Some age groups will require fewer single elimination rounds.

The preliminary schedule for the VYSA Champions League format at the quarter final round is as follows: 

  • U17 and U18 girls: September 26 & 27, one game each day at VSTC, home & away game Oct.17
  • U15 and U16 girls: October 3 & 4, one game each day at VSTC, home & away game October 17
  • U17 and U18 boys: October 17 & 18, one game each day at VSTC, home & away game on Oct. 24
  • U15 and U16 boys: October 17 & 18, one game each day at VSTC, home & away game on Oct. 24

Our schedule for Fall State Cup competition is full with every weekend a play date. Weather and unforseen circumstances can interupt the most carefully planned schedule.

All teams are expected to be available in the Fall each weekend leading up to and including the Semifinals and Finals scheduled for October 31 and November 1.  Any rain dates needed will be TBD.

Laminated Player Passes are Required
It has come to the attention of the Cup Committee that there are still questions about laminating player and team official passes. This is required.
  • Passes in plastic pouches that are not sealed or in plastic pockets in a notebook will not suffice.
  • Each pass must be sealed by lamination.
  • Please bring only laminated passes for each player and team official to the match.
When a Player or Coach is Ejected/Red Carded
He/She Must Serve a Sit Out
If a player plays or a coach coaches in a game when the Sit Out was owed, at a MINIMUM,
the TEAM will FORFEIT the match.
The responsibility for knowing if a sitout is needed is on the player, coach and TEAM.   

Coaches/Managers are strongly urged to check with ALL of their players,
especially those added to the team since they last participated in Cup play.  
Ignorance of this rule or failure to remember an ejection
will not be grounds to contest match forfeiture. 


Questions About Weather and State Cup Games

 Your team must make sure that the manager or team point of contact checks the State Cup web page for updates.

We will try to call too, but that will be the last thing on our notification list.  As soon as we know if a field is closed we will post it on the webpage.  All teams should be in cell phone contact with each other and must make sure that we have the cell phone number for the point of contact for the team.
We will only post fields that are closed or have a field number changeCheck before you leave for your game if you feel the weather will cause a problem.
We of course can’t be looking into a crystal ball to see what the weather will be like today during the day.  If we start the day on a field, we will play the games unless a club, park authority, town,etc, closes a field or a referee calls off the games.
