State Cup Information 2016-2017
WHAT DOES THE AGE GROUP CHANGE MEAN FOR YOUR TEAM?
The age group change to calendar year will make some changes in the age group a team enters for State Cup play next seasonal year. The oldest age group in the Fall will be U19. Right now the National Championship Committee is making plans to add U20's to the U19 age group. The addition of the U20's to the U19 age group will make sure that our current oldest players will be able to play out their eligibility in the National Championship Series. VYSA will play this age group, U19/20, in the Fall of 2016 and will not hold a U19 State Cup competition in the Spring of 2017.
 
Some teams will be made up of 2 year combinations, and some will be single year. When your team applies to State Cup you will apply to the age group corresponding to the oldest player on your roster. 

For the Fall 2016 State Cup, if the oldest player on your team was

        Born                          You will enter
8/1-12/31 1997/1998       U19/20
1999                                 U18
2000                                 U17
2001                                 U16
2002                                 U15

For the Spring 2017 State Cup, if the oldest player on your team was

      Born                      You will enter
2003                               U14
2004                               U13
2005                               U12

2015 Fall State Cup
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.
