Application FAQs

Q: In what age group should I register my team?

  • The 2017 Park City Extreme Cup will align its age groups with 2017-18 Club play, based on the US Youth Soccer Calendar Year mandate.  When registering for the Extreme Cup, teams should make sure they specify their team's Fall 2017 age as the age group they will play in the tournament.

Q: What Competitive Division Should I Choose for my team?

  • The competition level is intended to provide a general indication of team strength and is used to help create divisions within age groups. The level requested by a team is NOT a guarantee that they will play in any particular division. The Selection Committee relies primarily on team records from previous play to guide the selection and placement process. Generally speaking, Platinum and/or Gold is the most competitive level and will have mostly Premier or upper Division 1 teams. Silver and/or Bronze will have mostly Division 1 and 2 teams, while Bronze and/or Copper will be the least competitive. The number of divisions within an age group will be determined only after registration closes.

Q: How should I complete the Additional Information on the application?

  • Most of the Additional Information section of the application is aimed at placing teams in the appropriate competitive division. Choose the competition level (Most Competitive, Competitive, Least Competitive) that you think best fits your team. For the most recent season of play, select the Division you are currently playing in or most recently completed. If you are a brand new team, you should note this on the application and enter information based on where you expect the team to be placed in the coming season. You can add any relevant information in the area reserved for Requests.
