Brackets with only 4 teams will play in a round robin format. The top two
teams as determined by points will play a final match to determine the
champion. Brackets with 5 teams will play in a round robin format with all teams playing
4 games. Champion and Finalist will be determined respectively by the two
teams with the most points.
If I coach more than one team in the tournament, can my games be
scheduled so they do not conflict?

Although we cannot promise to accommodate every scheduling request, we
will make every effort to do so. Please be sure to let us know as soon as
possible and have an assistant coach available in the event all conflicts
cannot be resolved.
The application form does not look right on my screen (overlapping drop down boxes, long rows over the input fields, etc.) What is going on?
First, you should let the ENTIRE form load BEFORE you scroll. It is a big form.

In short, your computer does not have enough memory (RAM) available to render the form correctly. Here is the solution that will work in most cases:

1. Clear the cache (temporary files) in Internet Explorer (Usually Tools>Internet Options>Remove Temporary files
2. Shut down Internet Explorer
3. Restart the computer
4. Open JUST MS Internet Explorer.
5. Go to Web site, fill out form.

In most cases, this will solve the problem....
What is the rule for Offside?
U9 through U15: The full Offside rule is in effect in accordance with FIFA 2021.
and The Laws of the Game. U9 and U10 will use the build out line rule for offside. No heading is allowed for u11 divisions and younger. All participants must adhere to Ohio law and it's return to play requirements.
