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 Cup and National Cup Rules on their respective pages through the links above. For National Cup only, Club Passes can be used for Far West Regionals Rosters and National Championship Rosters as well. Click here for instructions


Please note the following registration instructions that apply to all State Tournament Divisions:

  1. 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.
  2. Teams must apply for the correct Cup, based on the Play Level Guide below. The system will scan all applications, and those that have not been submitted to the correct play level will automatically be moved to the proper, corresponding Cup.
  3. 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. Contact your Cal South District Commissioner to change a team’s Cal South registration age.
  4. Any team that has not paid their application entry fee in full by the set deadline will not be allowed to participate. Your application is not complete until registration fee is paid in full. Teams withdrawing prior to the application deadline receive a full refund. Teams withdrawing prior to the draw, but after the registration deadline, will be assessed $125.00 administrative fee. Teams withdrawing after the bracket draw date shall forfeit their entire entry fee.
  5. If your team has changed their club affiliation since last year, or if your team has changed their team number or made a change to their name, make sure to notify the State Tournament Committee by email for proper seeding.
  6. We will determine the exact play dates for each Division when we have all applications in for an age group and once we know how many fields we will have available. When entering State Cup Division competition, please plan on playing any and/or all of the dates listed for your Division age/competition groups.
