NOVEMBER 1ST TRANSFER POLICY:

Players who transfer from one club to another club after November 1st will be ineligible for participation in both Arizona State Cup (National Championship Series) and Arizona Presidents Cup for that seasonal year. A transfer is defined as the process by which a player changes club affiliation, moving from one club and re-registering to a team within a different club within the same seasonal year. 

 

A maximum of five (5) transfers are allowed for teams which participate in the National Championships Series, known as Arizona State Cup.  

There is no limitation on transfers for teams participating in Arizona President's Cup.  

 

The November 1st transfer deadline does not apply to the 19U age group.

US YOUTH SOCCER NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES FWR Entry Recap by State

Arizona Boys 16U and Girls 12U will be granted a Wildcard entry to the Far West Regional Championships. That means the Winner of the Boys 16U and Girls 12U State Championship will advance as well as the Finalist (as the Wildcard). Note that if the Champion of the USYS Regional League Desert Conference also wins the Arizona State Cup, that team is going as the State Cup Champion and the Desert Conference spot is given to the DC 2nd place finisher. IF this were to occur for an age group with the wildcard such as the 16U, the Finalist of the Arizona State Cup would attend as the Wildcard. The 12U event is held in conjunction with the West President's Cup Regionals in Norco, CA. See the President's Cup web page for more information.
