General Information:

NEW THIS YEAR – U17 Teams may enter Tournament Teams. This makes it easier for high school teams to be part of the Indoor Cup! For instructions on how to create a Tournament Team, please contact, Registrar, Sheila Molyneaux, at SMolyneaux@epysa.org.

  1. Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer will, where possible, offer two levels of competition ("Elite" and "Challenge"). "Elite" = Most Competitive "Challenge" = Competitive.
  2. All teams must apply by either credit card or /e-check and are accepted immediately pending credit card authorization and proper proof of league registration/USYSA/EPYSA passes (See also #7-#10).
  3. Coaches must request a competition level. Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer will do its best to meet the requests of the Coach/Team but the Cup Committee will have final authority on placement and all decisions of the Committee are final.
  4. The previous year's Indoor Cup "A" or "Elite" level Champion and Finalist (if they apply) should register to be in the "A" or "Elite" level competition of the Indoor Cup. The Cup Committee/Competition Director/Administrator may place a team they deem worthy of higher competition in the “A” or “Elite” level. Additionally, if the previous year’s National Championship Series (NCS) Champion or Finalist applies, they could also be placed in the "A" or "Elite" level for the Indoor Cup. Champion and Finalist of the "Challenge" or "B" level from the previous Indoor Cup may register for the "Elite" or "Most Competitive" Flight of the 2017 Indoor Cup but are not compelled to.
  5. There will be no seeding in either competition level. Once the competition levels and teams for each level are defined for an age group, a blind draw will be conducted to place teams in their respective brackets.
  6. The roster for teams participating in the Indoor Cup competition is restricted to their league-approved team roster. * See #7 for caveat.
  7. U11 AND OLDER AGE GROUPS MAY NOW SPLIT THEIR ROSTERS AND COMPETE AS 2 INDIVIDUAL TEAMS. EACH TEAM FEE IS $325. There is no U18 Age Group in The Indoor Cup. No player may play on multiple teams throughout that Indoor Cup. Each team will be responsible to provide INDIVIDUAL team lineups and no player may play between registered teams during that Cup for any reason. See Indoor Cup Rules for more information.
  8. Complete Indoor Cup rules and regulations, schedules, Venue Guide and locations will be available at the www.EPYSA.org website.
  9. No Select Teams, Guest Players or Tournament Teams* will be accepted. Secondary Players may only play on their primary team. (* U17 and U19 Teams have the option of participating as Tournament Teams or Travel Teams).
  10. Teams must be registered (rostered) with Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer and have USYSA passes. US Club and other non-USYSA passes/rosters will NOT be accepted.
  11. A team accepted into the 2017 Indoor Cup which does not participate may lose its application fee and may be fined according to the fee/fine structure in effect. All teams from that club could risk losing the privilege of participating in the following year’s Indoor Cup.
  12. Every team will be guaranteed three (3) twenty-four (24) minute games. Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer is not responsible for forfeits created by teams that withdraw from the tournament. Individual awards will be presented to first and second place teams in each Flight and Gender.
  13. All games will be played with five or six field players plus goalkeepers depending on the venue. See the Venue Guide on www.EPYSA.org for more information.
  14. There are NO TEAM AWARDS. Individual Awards will be given to the PLAYERS ONLY. Coaches/Team Managers will NOT receive awards – Players ONLY.
  15. Teams may not exclude rostered players so that the team may play in a younger age group. Your team must play in the age group it is registered to through Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer. To put it simply – You must play in the age group of your oldest player.
  16. The Tournament Director/Competition Director has the ability/discretion to add/remove/redistribute a team(s) for the betterment of the competition.
  17. Due to the compressed schedule, there will be NO PROTESTS at the Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer Indoor Cups.
