South Texas Cup
2018 SOUTH TEXAS CUP
The South Texas Cup is a developmental level statewide competition restricted to South Texas registered Division II and Division III boys and girls teams in the 11U through 19U age groups who are not already participating in another Cup competition.
2018 Cost: 11U-14U: $450. 15U-19U: $475.
The South Texas Cup begins with an Invitational District Tournament which will be held typically in early to mid April. Hosting sites will be determined by the state office. 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 2018: April 7-8 and April 28-29) 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 17U age group will only have one bracket that combines both Division II and Division III teams. The 18U and 19U age groups will be combined into a "19U" 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 28-29, 2018 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 2018 the State Tournament will be hosted in the Western District. The 2018 South Texas Cup registration fee is $450 for 11U-14U teams, $475 for 15U-19U teams. That fee covers both the District and State portions of the competition (should a team advance out of the District event).
