Spring Cup information

STX Youth Soccer Member Associations:

 

We hope all our South Texas members are doing well and had a great start to the New Year! We are looking forward to our 2021 Spring Cups, which are quickly approaching. Included in this email are a variety of resources for review in preparation for the 2021 South Texas Spring Cups.

 

All Spring Cup information can also be found on our website: https://www.stxsoccer.org/competitions; each specific cup has its own event page – select the red “Learn More” button under the specific STX Spring Cup to enter the page where specific cup information will be kept up to date with event information – ranging from rules to event contact info.

As we have all been affected this seasonal year by COVID-19, please see below in reference to what teams are eligible to apply/register for STX Youth Soccer Spring Cups:

  • USYS/STX Youth Soccer Registered Teams who participated in a STX sanctioned fall league are eligible to participate in accordance with their registration age group and league results, if available.
  • USYS/STX Youth Soccer Registered Teams who were unable to participate in a STX sanctioned fall league or opted out of competition in the fall due to COVID-19 concerns will have their Spring Cup eligibility determined by the STX Competitions Committee.

 

We encourage all teams to review the qualification information, event locations, and assess their comfort level with competing in the event before submitting their application. South Texas Youth Soccer events will follow our published COVID-19 Resource Handbook, as well as any local city/county and State of Texas guidelines when hosting cup events this spring.
