Game Day Reminders:
Good luck to all teams and safe travels.
If your team is playing at a field other than PVSTC you must bring your own game report forms to give to the referee. This process is the same you followed for your preliminary games.
Game Day/State 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 State Cup committee. You must have your player passes and your team official passes with you at the game for check in. These passes must be laminated
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. Red Carded players will be in red on your roster. Make sure the referee initials next to their name on the game card.
Make sure that you have printed the correct roster for these games. Your league roster will not be accepted for play.
The correct roster will have your game information at the top and will say this...
2018 Virginia National Championship Series State Cup
Official Game Roster
Check your roster carefully after printing to make sure all active player names are printed. All players will print and you will cross off those players not playing for the semifinal game at check in. You may also write in any team officials that are not on the roster. Make sure they have their team official passes. Up to 4 officials may be on the team bench or team sidelines.
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
Red Card Sit Out
It is still a good idea to check the red card sit out list (left hand column). 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
The Virginia Soccer Training Center does not allow pets. Service animals are allowed if there is a certificate or identifying harness or vest.
