  • Use of the Club Pass for State and National Cups. The club will determine when a player is placed on a State Cup Tournament Roster. The Club has the ability to move players from within the Club onto and off of a team's State or National Cup Tournament Roster prior to the Roster Freeze. These moves within the club do not count as one of the 5 transfers. Teams must maintain 9 player continuity at all times. For details, please consult the State and National Cup Rules.
    For National Cup only, Club Passes can be used for Far West Regionals Rosters and National Championship Rosters as well. Click here for instructions

Teams may enter the State or National Cup in a different age group than they were initially registered for in the current seasonal year as long as every player registered to the team is age appropriate for that competition's age group except under-10, which must play under-10
