To register, the listed Team Head Coach or Manager must log in with their YOUTH SOCCER LOGIN and proceed to register their team for the correct State Tournament Division per the Play Level Guide listed below. If the team wants to play in a lower Division than listed, the team must register and pay for the correct Division and then Appeal per the Appeal procedure below.
