It is the responsibility of the team to access these rules and become familiar with them. The NCS policies may be modified by the VYSA State Championship Policies.You must go to the State Cup Rules to be aware of the rules as you apply for State Cup.

Communication

In order to keep all teams up to date on game schedules, results and sometimes changes to fields and times, it is very important for each team to provide a primary contact and an email address. During the competition, the administrative information will be distributed by email through the Affinity email system. The game schedules and game results will be available on the VYSA Web Site.

All of the State Cup forms, the 2019-2020 seasonal Year Cup Calendar and the VYSA State Cup Rules are available at www.vysa.com.

LAMINATED PLAYER/TEAM OFFICIAL PASSES

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.
  • There has been some discussion about the need for additional laminated passes since all player's and team official pictures now appear on the State Cup roster. This can be a second check of players and team officials but it does not take the place of current laminated passes. In the 15U-19U age groups, with the limited substitution rule, referees hold the passes during the game to make sure that the substitution process is proper for each team.  Also the Regional and National Championships rules still require the presentation to the referee, of a laminated pass.
  • You must have your Official Game Day Roster form (State Cup Roster) and your laminated passes at every game.
