District 6 Cup

Enrollment in the 2017 District VI Cup tournament will open in Sept.  District Cup (for U10 through U19 teams) is one of two 'end of season' tournaments open only to Recreational teams in District VI.  The other is the Ernie Hazeltine SoccerFest for U8 through U14 teams.  You cannot play in both of these events as they play on the same date.  Note also that Competitive teams may not participate in District Cup; the Commissioner's Cup tournament was created in 2012 for District VI teams playing in CYSA's competitive league (CCSL).  2017 District Cup round-robin play for U16 and U19 teams is on Nov 11th and 12th; Finals will be held Nov 18th.  2017 District Cup round-robin play for U10, U12 and U14 teams is on Dec 2nd and 3rd; Finals will be held Dec 9th (Dec 6th for U10 & U12 Cup Challenge teams). 

Please review the detailed information on team responsibilities and seeding contained in the District Cup and SoccerFest application package (available by clicking 'Downloads' on the menu bar). The application package is an Adobe pdf document that you may review online and/or print.  Although most teams will submit an online entry to SoccerFest or District Cup, you may also mail a printed application (page 5 of the package) if you prefer to enter by mailed application and check.

The District Cup tournament provides a more competitive level of play than SoccerFest, but as with SoccerFest, it is also seeded into multiple levels.  The Cup Challenge group is for the most skilled teams; additional groups are formed as the number of entries permit.  Each seeding group consists of six to ten teams split into two flights of three, four or five teams each.  Teams play two, three, or four games in round-robin format on the first weekend.  Flight winners meet in a final match for their group the following Saturday.   Players on all participating teams will receive Tournament pins, and there are first and second place awards for all players on teams that play in a Final.  The team winning the final match in each of the Cup Challenge groups will also be awarded the perpetual District VI Cup trophy for their age-group.

CYSA also offers a State level end of season tournament for Recreational teams - Founders' Cup.  See the online CalNorth Team Manual for additional information.  Founders’ Cup U10 & U12 play is on the Dec 9/10 weekend and Founders’ Cup U14/U16/U19 play takes place on the Oct 28/29 weekend.
