Game Format and Divisions
Regulation game times less 5 minutes. All games will be played at the Stenger Soccer Complex, or Long Lake Regional Park, in Arvada, Colorado. Each 9U –14U team will be scheduled to play a minimum of three games. Semi-final matches (if needed) will be played on Sunday afternoon with finals & consolation matches scheduled for Monday.
Teams will be placed in Divisions based on number of teams registered, level of play and ability level. Our best efforts will be used to divide registered teams equally into divisions, based on divisional standings, division currently playing within CSA, and recommendations from the coaches, however placement is ultimately dependent on the current list of registered teams within the age group. 3 Divisions will be:
- Gold Division
- Silver Division
- Bronze Division
- White Division- if needed
7U & 8U teams will be scheduled to play 4 games on Saturday & Sunday only. The first 3 games will be randomly scheduled in a “festival format”. The tournament will conclude for these age groups with the “celebration round”, where teams with similar records will be matched for the final game.
