STATE CUP RULES are updated annually prior to the start of the competition.  Of note, the brackets in ALL age groups shall not exceed 12 teams total (3 brackets of 4 teams each). Should more than 12 teams apply for an age group, or an odd number of teams apply (other than 2, 3, 4, 8 or 12) then Qualifying games shall be drawn per the rules linked above to determine those teams that shall advance.

Team Check-In:
In-person check-in no longer required. Rosters will be frozen and approved prior to the event.

Teams must submit their rosters using the SportsForms link that was emailed to them following the bracket draws. (If you did not receive the link via email, please use the following link to request one be sent to you:

SportsForms uses a multi-step process where teams will upload their roster with a copy of the State Roster. The MYSA office will then review and approve the submission for the team's final review. ALL ROSTER UPLOADS MUST BE COMPLETED BEFORE THE ROSTER FREEZE DATE. This is the same process used in the National League - Midwest Conference. If you have any questions with about the process, please contact and they will assist in your registration. 

However, please have the following items on-hand for your matches:

  • A correct copy of State Roster (can be provided by your club registrar if you do not have)
  • Signed medical waivers for each player participating in your possession
  • Fully Laminated Player Cards in alphabetical order for each player participating (remove players not participating)
  • Fully Laminated Coaches Card for each coach with CDC approval on the front (4 max per team, all must be on the roster).
