It will be open to all travel team boys and girls with age groups as follows: U11 and U12 (small sided), U13 & U14 age groups in the fall and the U15 to U19 age groups in the spring. The tournament is comprised of properly registered NJYS players affiliated with NJYS Leagues, provided such team and their Leagues are in good standing with NJYS and the team is in compliance with, and has not violated, the rules of New Jersey Youth Soccer. Secondary players are not permitted. Any team using an ineligible player(s) will forfeit all of its tournament games and be subject to fines. B. This is a single elimination tournament with games sites arranged by NJYS unless otherwise noted by the NJYS Cups Committee. Teams are responsible for referee fees during the preliminary and quarter final rounds (see rules of the competition for specific costs). C. Any team wishing to participate in the US Youth Soccer Region I National Championship series should enter this tournament. D. The NJYS National Championship Series determines the teams representing New Jersey Youth Soccer in the U12 through U19 age groups at the US Youth Soccer Region I Championships. If applicable, regional champions (only in the U13 through U17 age groups) would then advance to the US Youth Soccer National Presidents Cup. E. Eligibility for the US Youth Soccer Region I Championships is according to placement in the NJYS National Championship Series. The NJYS state champion has the first option to advance but should that team decline, the finalist would be given the option to participate. Should the finalist also decline the invite, NJYS State Cups Committee will select another team representative. F. Players/teams entering the NJYS National Championship Series are ineligible to enter the NJYS Presidents Cup. Players/teams may only participate in one regional competition per seasonal year.

3 I. ADMINISTRATION A. The NJYS State Cups tournaments will have a NJYS State Cups Committee(s) appointed by NJYS Games Commissioner.

Leagues are required to schedule a minimum of one game against each of the different teams participating in the flight. Notwithstanding this minimum playing requirement, a team must complete their entire league schedule.

This league playing requirement must be completed one week prior to the start of regional competition. B. Applications for each tournament must be accompanied by a validated NJYS roster and the proper entry fee before the application is accepted.

Each player entering the competition must carry a US Youth Soccer member pass. No player may present or play with a player pass issued by any other US Soccer member organization. The US Youth Soccer member pass, rosters and any revisions must be processed and approved by a NJYS approved District Commissioner. Any violation of this rule will result in fines and/or suspensions.

4 No Pass No Play No Exceptions E. Every player must be rostered on an official team roster that has been validated by a NJYS District Commissioner to be eligible to play in the NJYS National Championship Series. Validated player passes are required for each player in every game. All team officials, coaches, assistant coaches, managers, etc. must also be listed on the roster and have a current valid member pass. The referees have been instructed to enforce the NJYS State Cups No Pass-No Play rule. F. A player can only be rostered on or play with one team in any level of NJYS State Cups competitions during a seasonal year. G. NJYS will accept roster additions, releases, and transfers up to the roster freeze date set by the NJYS State Cups Committee, in conformance with the then-applicable regulations of the US Youth Soccer National Championship Series. H. A team s roster is frozen for both cup competition and league play for the duration of NJYS National Championship Series completion and possible participation at the regional and national Level. (club passing may apply by NJYS registrar only for US Youth Soccer Region I competition or US Youth Soccer National competition and in compliance with National competition rules) For teams that are NJ Youth Soccer Champions from the fall, rosters are frozen for the entire spring season. You cannot make any roster changes. I.e. adds or transfers, during that period for NJ Youth Soccer State Cups, league, or tournament play. If you drop a player from the roster, the player is dropped for both league and NJYS State Cups play. Exception: U19 and U18 roster changes may be submitted to the NJYS office by 4:00 pm on the business day prior to the beginning of the competition. I.

If a secondary carded player appears on a NJYS National Championship Series roster, that team will be disqualified from the competition. IV. RULES OF THE COMPETITION A. If a team requests to change their state cup tournament preference after the registration deadline but before the brackets are completed, they will incur a $50 change fee (if approved by the NJYS Games Commissioner).
