Tournaments are a regular part of the NTSSA and CYSA soccer programs. At the end of each season, the CYSA offers friendly competition with a mini intra association tournament in the U7 - U10 age groups. The intra association tournament is designed for fun and is the first step in NTSSA-sanctioned tournament participation. Other association teams playing in interassociation tournaments have the same team selection process as the CYSA and require each player to play 50% of the time. The tournaments fall in line with the "low-key" competition as described in Recreational Soccer. There is no intra association tournament for older age groups.
CYSA does have specific Tournament Rules. To obtain a copy for your age group please visit the "Forms" page and download a PDF version. As part of your "coaches package" distributed at the bi-annual coaches meeting you should have received a copy. If you need additional copies please refer to the right sidebar on this page or for further questions e-mail us from our contact page.
NTSSA member associations offer sanctioned tournaments throughout the year. The CYSA teams that want to play longer, keep in practice and continue building their skills have the option to participate in these tournament events.
The following are the procedures for registering your team in a tournament:
If you are going to an out of state tournament, you must have Travel Authorization, Travel Roster, Travel Player Cards in addition to the above NTSSA requirements. You must have these approved through the North Texas State Soccer Office. For more information call NTSSA at 972/323-1323 or e-mail us from our contact page.
