2017 Spring Cup Manual
The South Texas Cup begins with an Invitational District Tournament which will be held typically in mid April. Hosting sites will be determined by the respective STYSA District Vice-President. Entry into the Invitational District Tournaments will be restricted to those teams that have competed in a local association spring league the same seasonal year. The local association league does not "qualify" teams into the South Texas Cup, nor does it have to be completed before the South Texas Cup event. South Texas request that the local association leagues work in a 2-weekend "bye" (for 2017: April 8-9 and April 29-30) for team who participate in the South Texas Cup competition.
The District Tournament will include two brackets...a Division II bracket and a Division III bracket. A Division III team may register to play in the Division II bracket. Each bracket will have their own District (and State) champion. The U17 age group will only have one bracket that combines both Division II and Division III teams. The U18 and U19 age groups will be combined into a "U19" age group and will only have one bracket that includes both Division II and Division III teams.
The State Tournament will be held the weekend of April 29-30, 2017 and will include the first and second place teams in each age group from the two District tournaments, along with a representative from El Paso if entered. In 2017 the State Tournament will be hosted in the Eastern District. The 2017 South Texas Cup registration fee is $450 for U11-U14 teams, $475 for U15-U20 teams. That fee covers both the District and State portions of the competition (should a team advance out of the District event).
