SLSG Girls Fall Classic - FAQ's

Girls Fall Classic FAQ's

Why should my team attend your event?

Because we are the top Girls event in the entire REGION! SLSG hosts the Top Girls event for younger girls AND the top event for Girls U16-U18. We are and have been ranked in the top 25 in the USA for years! This event is a who’s who of Midwestern Soccer teams along with teams from CO, CANADA, TN, OK, AL, GA, AR and even Texas and California.

 

How do you decide who gets into your event?

We use a number of resources for determining who makes it into each year’s event. We start with looking at where teams want to be placed. This does not make a huge impact on placement, but we can at least have a starting point. We use all of the data on your application and the NOTES section is huge for helping us know more about your team. ECNL teams are in. NPL teams are in. Midwest Regional League Premier teams are almost certain to get in each year along with many MRL First Division teams. We use results in these leagues, plus your local league, State Cup Results, Tournament Results, National Soccer Ranking, GOTSOCCER scores, past Fall Classic results, Regional Experts from other clubs…You name it we use it. Make sure you fill out your application and notes as complete as possible.

How do you bracket Teams?

We use a number of resources for team placement in each bracket or division. We generally have Premier and Gold in every age group and Silver for those divisions with more than 32 teams accepted in them. Diversity and competition are #1 priority’s. With the diversity of this event, you should not play a team from your state unless it is Illinois and sometimes Missouri. All of the criteria listed under the first question are also used to help determine brackets. Recent league play, strength of league, ECNL, NPL & Midwest Regional League Standings and results, performance in State Cup, USYSA Regional’s and USYSA Nationals, US Club Regional’s and National’s and other top-level tournaments, diversity with geography, and other criteria go in to our bracketing decisions.

 

Can our team register on Saturday at the fields?

No, all registration is now done electronically through Got Soccer. Click on the REGISTRATION/CHECK IN button for details.

 

Do you offer team discounts?

While many other events may offer some type of discount, we do not. We have had National Championship caliber teams attend our events in the past. We believe that our reputation for being organized, having first class facilities and having the highest quality and most diverse competition in the Midwest should be enough for our customers – you!

 

Why do we need to have separate checks from clubs with more than one team applying?

We have had over 400 applications the past two events. We accepted 370 and 394 teams. We do not cash checks until you are accepted into the event. For those teams not accepted, we either destroy your check or return it. This process makes it easier for you to get your money not having to wait for us to mail back a refund.

 

What do we need for Registration?

We will be sanctioned through MYSA and US CLUB Soccer. Click on the REGISTRATION/CHECK IN button online for everything you’ll need to upload.

 

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 is 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 is out of the question – but contact Mitch if this is the case.

 

Does your Tournament accept Super Seniors or Trapped players?

Yes, that is why we have a U19 division instead of U18.

 

How are inclement weather situations handled?

Please see our Refund policy under Rules.

 

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?

Accepted teams will be listed or before October 3, 2016. Brackets will be online by October 10, 2016. Schedules will follow 2 weeks before the event and will be posted online on or before October 21, 2016

 

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

If you are traveling and WANT a game Friday, let us know and we’ll do our best to get you one. Only teams from our local St. Louis area MAY play on Friday. All teams should except to play at 7:15am CST on Saturday.

 

What time might our final be on Sunday?

Finals will depend on the age group, site and division you are assigned to, but most finals will begin between 2-4pm Central Standard Time.
