Game Day Reminders
Presidents Cup Finals Moved to Sunday, November 4.
Teams:  We are moving the Presidents Cup Finals to Sunday, November 4.  Schedules will be some different on several fields. Please check the schedule later today for an update.
Good luck to all teams and safe travels.

Game Day/Presidents Cup Roster---the referees will bring the official game roster to the field with them for your game.  They will check your team in off of that roster, printed by the Presidents Cup committee.  You must have your player passes and your team official passes with you at the game for check in.  These passes can be just printed on paper and do not have to be laminated.  However if they are laminated that is ok.

Your team should print the roster for your team just to have with your paperwork. You should make sure that you have printed the correct roster for these games. 

The correct roster will have your game information, team names, game number, field, etc at the top and will say this...

2018 Presidents Cup

Official Game Roster

Check your roster carefully after printing to make sure all active player names are printed.


Remember that once your team has played in one Presidents Cup game you may make no additional changes to your Presidents Cup roster until the VYSA Presidents Cup competition is over.


Player and Team Official Passes

All of your players and team officials must have a player or team official pass printed from the Affinity system.

Red Card Sit Out

Check the red card sit out list (below on this page). All teams should check this list. You may have a new player or a club passes player that will need to serve a sitout.  Make sure that any player or team official that is required to sit out is checked on the roster and brought to the attention of the referee. The referee will initial this sit out. An ineligible player on the field, or a coach on the team bench will result in a forfeit for the team.


I know that all of  you are aware how bad traffic can be on the weekend. Travel on I-95 North or South, I-64 in either direction (plus the tunnel) and I-81 North or South is extremely frustrating most of the time.  Every family needs to add extra time to their trip in order to get to the game field on time.

Pets at a Field

Most fields do not allow pets at the field. If you are unsure, you can contact the home team to check.  The Virginia Soccer Training Center does not allow pets. Service animals are allowed if there is a certificate or identifying harness or vest.

Score Reporting

 The referees will bring the game reports back to the headquarters tent after the game. There is no need to mail anything or enter a score.



Passes for Club Passed Players,Jersey Numbers and Team Official Passes
----Also, Roster Rule for Teams Who Have Played One Game

This is a reminder for (1) player passes for “Club Passed” players and (2) player's jersey numbers and (3) adding team officials

(1)    Player passes for “Club Passed” players – Player passes for “Club Passed” players must be obtained by contacting the coach or manager of the player’s club team.  Their club team can print an extra pass from the Affinity system for you. This eliminates the need to get the pass from their team each week.

(2)    Jersey numbers for current league players and  “Club Passed” players – If your players jersey numbers do not print on the Presidents Cup roster, please take the roster with you to the field and add the jersey numbers for any players that do not have a number or need a number change to the Presidents Cup roster in pen at the field.  Make sure that you let the referee know of these number additions or changes and you add the numbers prior to the referee checking players and their passes.

(3)    Adding team officials--If you have a team official whose name does not print on the roster and they want to be one of the 4 officials on the team bench during the game, add their name in the team official area in pen and make sure they have a current team official pass with them to show to the referee.

If your team has played one Presidents Cup game you must continue to play each additional game in the State competition with the exact same roster.  The only change you may make to the roster is adding team officials or releasing a player.

Remember that no player on a Presidents Cup roster may play in the State Cup round of 8 or the quarter final round.  Make sure that any Presidents Cup rostered player that is club passed to a State Cup team is released prior to the State Cup round of 8 on October 13.

Follow all directions to fill out this form.  Each team must bring this form to the headquarters tent 30 minutes prior to the start of their game. This is not the VYSA Official Game Roster, but a separate form for each team that plays in the State Championship to fill out.

Official Game Roster: The referees will pick up the Official Game Roster from the Presidents Cup Committee and will bring this form to the field for your game.  The referees will check in your team at the field with this roster. You must have your player passes and team official passes with you at the game. After the game the referee will bring the game report back to the headquarters.

Red Cards To Be Served
A Reminder to all Players, Managers, and Coaches:
Be sure to check the Red Card List    If you have received a Red Card in a previous Presidents Cup match, State Cup or Regionals, you are required to serve a Sit Out in the very next Presidents Cup game that you participate with.
Therefore, check the list carefully.  The VYSA Presidents Cup Committee makes every effort to keep the list correct and up-to-date, but that all depends on the RED CARD being reported correctly and on time.  If for whatever reason you received a RED CARD and it does not appear on the list, that in no way removes the obligation of serving the Sit Out.
