Q: At what level should I enter my team?
A: In U-13 to U-18 Divisions, the top level is “Metro/Select/Rep”, followed by “Gold”. In the U-11/12 divisions, there are three tiers: #1 (generally strong, competitive teams), #2 (teams who win as many as they lose), and #3(teams who lose more than they win)! If you are in doubt, contact Clive Lovett in the KYSA office (between the hours of 9:00am and 2:00pm, Tuesday through Friday) for further clarification.
BCSPL teams MUST play at least a year up!!!
Q: Do the U11/12 divisions play 8v8?
A: As per BC Soccer Association guidelines, all U11/12 divisions will play 8v8 (Super-8s).
Q: When will the schedules be ready?
A: The schedules will be published on the Slurpee Cup website as soon as possible, usually in early May. An email will be sent to all teams when they are finalized. Keep in mind that for various reasons, some teams have to withdraw after the schedules have been finalized. The KYSA appreciates your patience as it reworks the schedule when such situations occur.
Q: How do I submit my official team roster ?
A: Official rosters for the tournament can be filled in on the tab on the right hand side of the home page. If you have not completed the online roster by May 19, you will be asked to provide a hard copy when you check in at tournament HQ. You may also be required to verify your online roster at registration.
What if I don’t have official ID cards for a member of my team?
While referees will not be checking ID cards, teams should be prepared to provide proof of age/registgration if a player(s) is called into question. All players must be registered with their originating club and/or provincial association to ensure they are insured and eligible to play.
Q: What levels of competition are offered?
A: In coastal British Columbia, the “BC Soccer Select League” or “Metro League” as it used to be known, is the top level of play on the boys side, “Girls Metro” is the top level on the girls side. “Gold” is a level below BCSSL/Metro. In Interior British Columbia, “Rep” or “Select” teams generally compete at the higher levels, though Rep soccer in some regions is not as strong as others. Contact Clive Lovett in KYSA office (between the hours of 9:00am and 2:00pm, Tuesday through Friday) for further clarification.
