How do you bracket Teams?

We use a number of resources for team placement in each bracket or division. We hope to have Premier and Gold in every age for 9v9 and 11v11. Diversity and competition are #1 priority’s, so we will try not to have teams from the same leagues play each other. All of the criteria listed under the first question are also used to help determine brackets. Recent league play, strength of league, Midwest Regional League Standings and results, performance in State Cup, other top-level tournaments, National ranking services, diversity with geography, and other criteria go in to our bracketing decisions. 


Can our team register on Saturday at the fields?

No, all teams must preregister online before the event. Click the REGISTRATION button for details.


Do you offer team discounts?

Yes, bring 5, 10 or 15 teams and we'll take care of you!

My coach coaches several teams that have applied for your event. Can you accommodate him?

We will do our best to help with these coaches conflicts. Two teams are usually taken care of, but remember there is drive time between the sites that may or may not be able to be taken into account. Three teams would be difficult. If this is the case, email Mitch.


Does your Tournament accept Super Seniors or Trapped players?

Yes, that is why we have a U19 division instead of U18. We also accept trapped 8th graders for GU14.


How are inclement weather situations handled?

We may have to shorten or cancel games if needed. Please see our Refund policy under Rules on the Tournament site.


Do I have to fill out everything on your application?

If you don’t want us to drop or miss bracket your team, the answer is YES. The more information that you provide INCLUDING NOTES, the better we can get the best competition for your group.


When will accepted teams be posted?

Deadline May 1, 2021.  Accepted teams will be posted immediately after the deadline. Brackets will be online on or before May 7, 2021 and the schedule will be released by midnight on May 14, 2021.


Will we play on Friday Night? If not, what time on Saturday?

Only teams from our local St. Louis area MAY play on Friday. If you are an out of town team that would like to play on Friday to help a coach with multiple teams, please let us know. All teams should expect to play at 8:00am CST on Saturday.


Will we play on Monday?

NO.  For the first time, NO games on MONDAY!

Do you have Championship games in this event?

All divisions with more than 5 teams will have Finals.  All 4 and 5 team brackets will be round robin with the top point getter being crowned champion.


Can a guest player from another Youth Soccer organization guest play with my team?

No, a USYS player can’t guest play with a US Club sanctioned team. And a US Club guest player can’t play with a USYS team. No exceptions to this rule from either MYSA or US CLUB
