Please read all of the dates on the calendar posted on this web page.

There is some flexibility as to an early or late game on these dates, but the Saturday play date is firm September 23 will be a light play date if used at all. 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. In some cases a central location to both teams will be found. 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 June 15-17, 2018 in Barboursville, WV. The location of National Championship venue is TBD and the dates will be mid July, 2018. 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.
