Mandatory Team Credentials

We are looking to simplify the check-in process this year, so keep checking back to this page.  For now, see below:

All Maricopa County teams must check in on Wednesday, September 2, at the Marriott Courtyard Salt River (5201 N. Pima Road, Scottsdale, AZ 85250) or Thursday, September 3, at the Phoenix Rising FC - Desert Foothills offices (4730 E. Long Mountain Road, Ste 140, Cave Creek AZ 85331) from 6:00-9:00 pm. 

All non-local teams (outside Maricopa County) must check in on Friday evening or Saturday morning at tournament headquarters one hour before game time.

A team representative must bring the following to credential team check in:

  • LAMINATED PLAYER PASS:  All players, coaches, and assistant coaches must have a current year FIFA, USSF, USYSA, US Club, SAS, AYSO, ODP or affiliate member pass, depending on the type of tournament sanctioned (restricted, unrestricted, etc.) 

  • TEAM ROSTER:  Rosters must be up-to-date in Gotsoccer, including jersey numbers. Any player participating in the tournament must be on the roster. Roster freeze is the Tuesday before the Wednesday check-in.  The tournament will print all rosters.

  • TRAVEL PAPERWORK:  Out-of-state teams must provide travel paperwork required by their league.

  • LOANED PLAYER PAPERWORK:   All loaner player forms (signed by appropriate parties). Guest players will require the same credentials as rostered players.

Roster sizes are as follows:

  • U7/U8 - maximum of 7 players and may be mixed between male and female

  • U9/U10 - maximum of 14 players

  • U11/U12 - maximum of 18 players

  • U13+ - maximum of 22 players

A team may add up to five (5) guest players, not to exceed above stated maximums.

Players may not play for more that one (1) team during the tournament. No player will be allowed to play in a younger age bracket.

Once team check-in is complete, the player passes will be bound for the duration of the tournament. If during the course of the tournament a team's player passes are found to be unbound, the team may be required to repeat the check-in process before the next match.
