***Can I have guest players or club pass players?  There are no guest players or club pass players allowed for Presidents Cup. Each player must be currently rostered to your league roster in order to be eligible to play

***What will I need at the games?

1. You will need to bring a copy of your league roster and all of your player's passes. Your passes can be laminated or not. There is no requirement for a laminated pass unless you go to the Regional Championship.

2. You will also need passes for your team officials. The team officials that will be on your sidelines must be listed on your VYSA league roster, either front or back and must have a team official pass for your team. You may have up to four team officials on the team sidelines. Only teams and their team officials may be on the team sidelines during the game. Referees will check passes for players and for team officials against the roster.

3. Fill out the game report form and bring it to the game. The team listed first on the schedule is the home team. (this form can be found on the Presidents Cup web page and can be filled out on line and then printed) You will see a phone number and pin number on the game report form. This is the number and pin the winning team will use to call in the game score. Please do this before you leave the field. Also the game report form will be picked up by the winning team from the referee and mailed to the address on the game report form. Please do this no later than Monday after your game.

***4. Bring a copy of the Presidents Cup Rules with you. Print the rules from the Presidents Cup web page on vysa.com.

***What if I have a league game scheduled on the same Saturday? You will need to contact your league and let them know you are playing in a Presidents Cup game. They will reschedule your league game for you. It will be up to you to make this contact.

***Can I make a scheduling request? After the schedule is published you may not make a scheduling request. Your team may request a morning or an afternoon game, but may not request another date. We will try to honor requests, but coaches with more than one team, travel distance for games and available fields and referees will be considered first.  Requests for each weekend must be received by the Saturday evening at 7:00 pm 1 week before your game.

***Can we bring pets to the games?  Most fields don’t allow pets. Unless you know for sure your pet is welcome don’t bring them with you. The Virginia Soccer Training Center (VSTC) does not allow pets.

2015 Presidents Cup
Presidents Cup Game Schedule
Semifinals, Saturday, November 4th and Finals, Sunday, November 5th
Welcome the Semi-Final round of the Presidents Cup 2017-2018
Please click on the schedule link at the end of this article for the game schedule.
Note for Saturday Nov 4th - We have made some changes to the previous schedule. The biggest scedule changes were made for a coach whose sister was getting married in the afternoon on November 4 and U18 teams that requested late for SAT testing for their players. With the exception of these reasons most teams remained fairly close to the scheduled published last week.

1.   FINAL FOUR WELCOME LETTER & REMINDERS:  Teams managers and coaches should familiarize themselves with the "Final Four Welcome Letter" document emailed to each team and the "Final Four Reminders" document - that can be found in the left hand column on this page.

2.  DOGS AND OTHER ANIMALS:  As a reminder, DO NOT bring dogs or other animals to the Publix Virginia Soccer Training Center (PVSTC).  We only allow "Service Animals" at PVTSC.

3.   TRAVEL CONSIDERATIONS: Teams should be sure to leave enough travel time - check traffic often - this is especially important for those who need to travel on I95 or US64.  Travel Motto - Leave early and check traffic often.  With the number of State Cup and President's Cup Final Games at the facility on Sunday, as well as games at FFC Park, please be sure to allow extra time for arrival and parking.

4.   PLAYER PASSES & ROSTERS:  ALL Players and ALL Coaches/Team Officials must have passes; NO Pass = NO Play for players; NO Pass = NO sitting on the bench or team side of the field for all team officials.  Only 4 coaches/team officials may sit on the team bench for the match and they must be listed on the VYSA League Roster.  Each team must have a hard copy of your VYSA League Roster to show at the check-in.  Electronic versions of passes and rosters ARE NOT acceptable.

Finals are listed by age group, without team names as we will not have the two final teams prior to releasing the schedule. The Sunday, November 5 schedule is very tight as we are playing both the Presidents Cup and the State Cup finals on Sunday, November 5. Any changes to the published schedule will be for referee or field availability issues. 

Congratulations to all teams--Good Luck---Safe Travels
