All-Star Cup November 18-19, 2017

Herndon Youth Soccer will be hosting the 17th annual All-Star Cup on November 18-19, 2017.  Last year we hosted more than 440 teams and we expect an equally good turnout this year.  The tournament is sanctioned by the Virginia Youth Soccer Association (VYSA) for recreational and recreational All-Star teams who are registered with and have played during the fall season with their sponsoring club.  Their sponsoring club must be affiliated with VYSA. No travel teams or travel carded players are allowed. 

All players must have current US Youth Soccer recreational player passes. 
Birth certificates and passports will NOT be accepted.

Teams will be accepted on a space-available basis upon receipt of the attached registration form and fee.  Please make checks payable to Herndon Youth Soccer.  Payment must accompany your application.

All registration forms MUST BE RECIEVED BY OCTOBER 14, 2017. Applications are NOT guaranteed acceptance, however, all efforts will be made to accommodate as many teams as possible.  Acceptance letters will be emailed to club point of contact by October 25th and we would anticipate schedules being posted no later than October 31st. 

Please refer to our web site for game schedules, medical release forms, roster forms, field directions and other important information.  Enclosed is a general information sheet for your reference. It should answer many of your questions. Just as in 2016 with the change to birth year this year the National organization has imposed some changes nationwide. Some our State Association has insisted on and they have affected our rules in some cases and some they have not so please read carefully and just email me with any questions.

By popular request, we will discontinue patch exchange for our older players but in U8-U12 teams are encouraged to bring trading patches to be exchanged with the opposing team players at the end of the game.

We look forward to seeing everyone in November.


Notes and Changes

As always information packets and forms will be emailed out to all club contacts in late August, but in the meantime take note of some changes we will have to make (and some we won’t have to make) for the tournament due to the Player Development Initiatives mandated by US Soccer for fall 2017. It is certainly not our choice to do this but we must follow the mandated part of the new rules per VYSA in order for the tournament to be sanctioned.

For the U8:

  • We have always used 6 x 12 goals but will need to use 4 x 6 Bow net variety.
  • We will play 4 v 4 instead of 5 v 5;on a  slightly smaller field than what we have used.
  • Due to the above, maximum allowable kids on a U8 team will be reduced to 8.

For the U9/10:

  • We will NOT have to follow the new policy on build out lines and goalies not punting the ball.. When I pointed out that dozens of tournament rules had been certified not mentioning this at all I was told it would not be required as this is something that would take time to work its way into common use. So… as it always has been.

For the U11/12:

  • Number of players will change from 8 v 8 to 9 v 9. Max on a team will remain 16.

Fees are as follows

U8           - $375
U9-10      - $410
U11-U12 - $460
U13-U14 - $510
U16         - $560
U19         - $585
