Saturday, October 28th

1.   FINAL FOUR WELCOME LETTER & REMINDERS:  Teams managers and coaches should familiarize themselves with the "Final Four Welcome Letter" document and the "Final Four Reminders" document - both of which can be found below in a separate article.  

2.   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.  

3.   PLAYER PASSES & ROSTERS:  ALL Players and ALL Coaches/Team Officials must have laminated 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 approved State Cup Roster.  Each team must have a hard copy of your approved State Cup Roster to show at the check-in.  Electronic versions of passes and rosters ARE NOT acceptable.

4.  FINALS SCHEDULE:  The schedule for the finals will not be posted until we have finished the semifinal games. Basically, the game times will run between 9:00 AM and 2:00 PM on Sunday, November 5. In order to make a schedule to accommodate coaching conflicts for the team in the Finals we will need to wait for the Semifinal winners. We will get the Finals schedule out as soon as possible after the Semifinals on October 28.

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

SEMIFINALS AND FINALS
NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES

Requests Closed

Thanks to all of you who wrote in with requests by the deadline of 12:00 noon today. We had many requests and will do our best to fill as many as we can. De-conflicting coaches with more than one team comes first, and after we have finished that we will give all other requests consideration. It will not be possible to honor all who have asked as we look at the number of game times we have and the number of early or late requests.

 

SEMIFINALS AND FINALS

Looking ahead to the Semifinals on Saturday, October 28 and the Finals on Sunday, November 5  -----  All games will be held at the Publix Virginia Soccer Training Center, (PVSTC) in Fredericksburg, VA.  We will do our best to deconflict coaches who have more than one team participating in State Cup but all teams should be prepared to play any time during the day on the semifinal and final dates. 

We will be accepting a very limited number of requests for early or late games for the semifinals and finals. These requests for both dates must be sent to us no later than noon on Tuesday, October 17.  

After we de-conflict the schedules for coaches with more than one team in the semifinals and finals there will be only a minimal number of additional game times to accommodate requests. We plan to publish the schedule for the semifinal games on or about Wednesday, October 18. This schedule will include a finals schedule with only age groups listed for a specific game times and we will fill this schedule in with team names after the semifinals. Please look ahead with your teams and check schedules as you make plans to be one of the teams in the semifinals and finals.

RED CARD Violations and the SIT-OUT Requirements

 

A Reminder to all Players, Managers, and Coaches:
 
Be sure to check the Red Card List on the State Cup Web Page.  If you have received a Red Card in a previous National Championship Series Event, regardless of what that event was, you are required to serve a Sit Out in the very next National Championship Series game that you participate with.
Failure to serve that required Sit Out has serious consequences for all concerned, as stated the Section II.F of the National Championship Rules:
 
F. Eligibility Rule Violations - Violations of player or team eligibility rules will result in the forfeiture of any games in which an ineligible team or player has participated. Any coach or team official found to have rostered an ineligible player is, together with the team, ineligible to compete further in National Championship Series competition in the current seasonal year. Any coach, manager, or official found guilty of knowingly using an ineligible player is not eligible to compete further in National Championship Series competitions in the current and the subsequent seasonal year. The coach is ultimately responsible for verifying player eligibility. 
 
Therefore, check the list carefully.  The VYSA NCS 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.
 
Finally, RED CARDS given during National Championship Series Events do not carry over to League or other Tournament Events and neither do RED CARDS given in those events carry over to National Championship Events.

GAME REQUESTS FOR OCT 14TH - DUE DATE
Requests Now Closed 10/02/17

To: All Teams Playing on Oct 14th -

If your team is playing on October 14th, any request for either a morning or afternoon time slot MUST be submitted to both Anne Thompson (annetomsn@aol.com) and Cathy Mann (cathymann@aol.com) NO LATER than Sunday October 1st at MIDNIGHT.

We won't be accepting late requests for the quarter final rounds. Please check with your team and get the requests to us by the deadline.

We do our best to accommodate your requests, but we are restricted by coaching conflicts (coaches with two teams in State Cup), field availability and field times and this is the reason some game time requests are not honored.

Thank you!

Anne and Cathy

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.
