A licensed, registered coach is required to present for the entirety of all games.
Q: In what age group should I register my team?
- The 2016 Park City Extreme Cup will align its age groups with Fall 2016/Spring 2017 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 2016 age as the age group they will play in the tournament. They SHOULD NOT specific the current age of their team.
Q: Why does the GotSoccer application specify the wrong age group for my team?
- When your application is completed, an incorrect age group may show up on the Payment or Confirmation page. This might happen if you entered the wrong age for your team when you created the team account. The age group of your team must be the age at the time the application is filled out and this will almost always be one year younger than the age group they will play in the tournament. See the previous FAQ for more information. If the application shows the wrong age group, just ignore this and make sure your email confirmation specifies the correct age group you will play in the tournament.
Q: What do Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze and Copper competition levels mean?
- 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 that division. Platinum and/or Gold, (depending on the size of the age group) is the most competitive level and will typically have all Premier teams; there may possibly be some upper level Division 1 teams when there are both divisions in an age level. Silver will be competitive and have mostly Division 1 and 2 teams, while the Bronze and 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 for a new team?
- Most of the Additional Information section of the application is aimed at placing teams in the appropriate competitive division. Choose the competition level (Platinum-Gold/Silver/Bronze-Copper) that you think you will best compete at. For the most recently completed season of play, select the Division you will be playing in the fall, and enter 0 for wins, losses and ties. You can add any relevant information in the area reserved for Requests.
