This year we are again holding the 'Soccer Bowl Tournament' the final three weeks of the season.  This applies only to U10 and older.


Schedules for individual teams, including second round games for those teams which advance, will be included on the Schedules Page. These are provided for the convenience of the parents.  Coaches must verify schedule information from the league.



The tournament starts on Sunday February 14 and ends with the 'Soccer Bowl' games on Saturday March 5.  Trophy presentations for all Under-10 and Under-12 teams will also be held on March 5th - click here for the trophy presentation schedule 

Games may be any day of the week (Fridays are reserved for make-ups).  Sunday games will not start before noon.  Evening games start at 6:15 or 7:45.  There are no games on Monday February 15 due to closure of the city parks.


Tournament Format:

ALL teams are a part of the tournament, regardless of regular season results.

This is a 'seeded' tournament.  That is, each team's position as of the seeding date, which is approximately February 2nd, is used to assign them to groups.  The intent is balance each group with the same quantity of stronger and weaker teams, while giving those teams with a better record some advantages.

The tournament is a 'round-robin' format.  The first round for most teams is 3 or 4 games, playing each team in its group once.  At the end of the first round, the top two (or in a few cases three) teams in each group will advance to the second round (or directly to the 'Soccer Bowl' games for smaller groups).

Games may end in ties in all matches except the 'Soccer Bowl' finals on March 5.   Advancement and position within group is determined by points from the number of wins/ties and possibly by the number of goals scored, subject to a maximum.  Complete rules are provided to each coach.

Medals are awarded to the top four finishers in each group.  Thus everyone who plays on March 5 will receive a medal.
