Every U11-U16 Travel Team will be entered into CJSA's CT Cup (not to be confused with the State Cup which is the name of the Cup for Premier Teams). Here are some key points to keep in mind regarding CT Cup Play:
Rosters: Player passes, coaches' passes, and a copy of a stamped frozen
certified roster (a certified roster must have been reviewed and signed by the District Registrar) must be on-hand in all cup games. Don't forget to bring them.
Game Length: U11-U14: Two 35 minute halves; OT: Two 10 minute
periods. U15-U16: Two 40 minute halves; OT: Two 10 minute periods. If a game is still tied, taking kicks from the penalty mark will be used to determine the winning team except in the finals; if the match is still tied after overtime periods, Co-Champions will be declared.
Game Scheduling: Weekend games must be scheduled for start between 10:00 AM and 5:00 PM for the Spring Competition. If teams mutually agree games may be scheduled outside of stated hours but must be played by date specified by cup committee. Games played on the designated day and between the stated hours DO NOT require agreement of away team.
Rescheduling of Games. In the event a game is rescheduled, canceled or abandoned because of inclement weather, the game shall be played the following day unless an exception is granted by the Cup Committee.
Reporting Scores: The Manager of each winning team must report the game score to their Cup Coordinator. Scores must be reported on-line and received by midnight of scheduled game day.
Referee Fees: In all rounds except the finals, the home team is responsible for the referee and assistant referee fees. Clubs may not pay less than the following amounts:
• U11-14: $40 referees; $20 assistant referees
• U15-U19: $50 center referees; $25 assistant referees
All coaches awarded a home game shall:
• Contact their Club Referee Assignor upon notification that they are the home team
• Contact opponent within 48 hours and schedule game.
