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 may not play in both of these events as they play on the same dates.  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 the CYSA competitive league (CCSL.

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 (or mid-week Wednesday evening).   Players on all participating teams 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.

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 will submit an online entry to the District Cup tournament, you may also use the application (page 5 of the package) if you prefer to enter by mailed application and check.

CalNorth also offers a State level after the season tournament for Recreational teams: Founders' Cup. Founders' Cup is an ‘open’ tournament, see the online CalNorth Team Manual for additional information. This year, Founders’ Cup U10 teams play on the same dates as the U10s in District Cup; U10 teams cannot play in both Founders' Cup and District Cup. Founders’ Cup U12/U14 play begins on District Cup Finals weekend; mid-week (evening) Finals are scheduled for any affected teams. Founders’ Cup play for U16 and U19 teams takes place in late February and early March.
