Welcome to the Spring 2016 VYSA State Cup
Preliminary information on the new VYSA Champions League Format...

Entry into the National Championship Series of US Youth Soccer begins with State Cup Competition. The Spring age groups competing for the State Championship are U12, U13 and U14 boys and girls. The calendar with administration dates and play dates is posted. 

This year the State Cup competition will include the new VYSA Champions League format. The games will be played single elimination beginning with the round of 64, round of 32 and round of 16. At the quarter finals, with the top 8 teams remaining in the competition, we will begin the Champions League format play. 

Each team in the quarter finals will play 3 games tournament style, one game against each team in their bracket. The first bracket will be the first 4 teams and the second bracket will be the 2nd 4 teams listed on the bracket sheet in the round of 8 (or quarter final round).

The top two teams out of each bracket will advance to the Semifinals. 

Play within the 3 game set for each team playing the VYSA Champions League format will be as follows:  

2 games of the 3 game set will be played at VSTC in Fredericksburg over one weekend, April 30 and
May 1. The 3rd game will be played in the Home and Away format with the team holding the higher seed going into the quarter final round playing home.

The single game of the quarter final tournament round will be scheduled on the weekend of April 23 or 24 before the tournament weekend of April 30 and May 1 or after the tournament round on the weekends of May 7-8 or May 14-15. These play dates will depend on the numbers of teams entered in each age group and weather. The most unknown in any schedule is weather. Availability to play on all weekends during the Spring Cup season is necessary to complete the competition by the week prior to Memorial Day.

The game dates for each age group will be made final after the applications have been received and numbers of teams in each age group has been determined  Teams must always be available to play on any assigned weekends listed as play dates on the State Cup calendar.

All single elimination games required for each age group will be played on April 2, 9, 16 and 23.  Some age groups will require fewer single elimination rounds. In the Spring we will also play some of the single elimination rounds on Sunday. This is to accommodate the schedule of games for the Region 1 Champions League.

Our schedule for Spring State Cup competition is full with every weekend a play date. All teams are expected to be available in the Spring each weekend leading up to and including the Semifinals and Finals scheduled for May 21 and 22.  Any rain dates needed will be TBD.

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.
