The Cheshire Soccer Club is pleased to extend an invitation to participate in its Nineteenth Annual Soccer Tournament to be played on June 12th & 13th, 2010. This is a sanctioned tournament held under the auspices of the Connecticut Junior Soccer Association, a member of USYSA. The Cheshire Invitational Soccer Tournament is open to boys’ “Classic” (Competition) teams in the following divisions:

All ages apply to boys born on or after August 1 of the birth year listed. Entries will be limited to 50 teams this year. As recommended by the CJSA Board of Directors, the Under 10, 11 and 12 Competition divisions will play short-sided games (8 v. 8). All entries will close on April 30 and a notification of acceptance will be sent shortly thereafter. The entry fee is $400 for U-13 through U-19 age groups and $325 for the U-10, U-11 and U-12 age divisions. Your entrance fee will be refunded if your team is not selected. If your team withdraws for any reason after acceptance, you will forfeit the entire entrance fee.
The main purpose of the tournament is to promote enjoyment and fair competition. All teams (except U10) will play a minimum of three games - two on Saturday and one on Sunday. Finals will be played Sunday afternoon. U10 teams will play two games on Saturday and two on Sunday.
Rosters will be limited to eighteen (18) players; fourteen (14) in the U-10, U-11 and U-12 Competition divisions. All teams must consist of players registered with a team and may play with that team only. Up to three (3) guest players will be allowed provided that they are registered with the same club.
All players (except U-10 Competition) are required to have a current, valid player pass issued by his state soccer association for registration on Friday, June 11, 2010. Players without a valid player pass (except U-10 Competition) will not be allowed to participate in the tournament. Teams from outside Region1 (except New Jersey), shall be required to follow USYSA procedures and furnish an approved "Permission to Travel" form upon acceptance.
The awarding of first and second place trophies will follow the completion of the finals. We require that all teams exchange patches or pins at the end of each game. Participation awards only will be presented to all U-10 players. Food concessions and sanitary facilities are available at all field sites. Additional information regarding registration, travel directions, lodging, and tournament rules will be forwarded with the acceptance letter.
If you are entering a team, please fill out the online registration form. You will then need to mail a copy of your roster before April 30th. EARLY APPLICATION IS ENCOURAGED! Last year, several teams were turned away because brackets were full!
