You should not apply if your team will not be able to play for any reason on any of these dates.

If there is a conflict with league play, the league will make the change to the schedule for your team. There will be State - wide travel for the Virginia portion of the Presidents Cup. There will be a home and away draw and the games will be scheduled as much as possible in the home area of the team who has drawn home. Travel on the scheduled weekends will be a necessary part of participation in the Presidents Cup. This year in each age group we will seed the 1st and 2nd team and all others will be drawn at random to fill the brackets. Seeding is done at the discretion of the Presidents Cup committee and will not be grounds for protest.
The winners of the Virginia competition will travel to the Regional Championship games. The Regional Tournament will be held over Memorial Day weekend , May 27-29, 2017 in Reisterstown, MD. The location of National Championship venue is Auburndale, FL, July 12-16, 2017. All teams are expected to be committed to this travel schedule.
All communications with teams will be done electronically. Please make sure that you give us an email address that will be monitored on a daily basis. Information will also be posted on the Presidents Cup web page on the VYSA web site.
