Continuity of Roster

Continuity of Roster

US YOUTH SOCCER 2018 MASSACHUSETTS STATE CUP

CLICK HERE FOR CONTINUITY OF ROSTER AGREEMENT FORM

This form is for teams requesting and meeting continuity of roster requirements as noted below.

Submission of this form is your assurance that you have read and understand the statement below in its entirety! Form must be submitted prior to February 1, 2018.

State Cup teams choosing to have their previous year’s State Cup results used for the current year’s seeding MUST demonstrate continuity of roster from the previous year’s Cup roster to the current year’s Cup roster. To demonstrate continuity of roster, a minimum of 50% +1 of the players from the team’s previous year’s State Cup roster (that is on file with Mass Youth Soccer) must be on the team’s current State Cup roster. The coach/club must certify the continuity of roster when the State Cup application is submitted.

Requirements Applicable To All Teams

All teams certifying their continuity of roster (at the time of declaring for State Cup) will have their roster reviewed. Teams must submit their roster to the State Cup Director a minimum of 72 hours prior to their roster freeze date. At this time, the State Cup Director will review the current Cup roster with the previous year’s Cup roster. Rosters that meet the continuity of roster requirement will be signed by the State Cup Director and returned to the team contact.  Teams not maintaining the continuity of roster requirement (that is, have less than the declared 50% +1 minimum requirement) will forfeit out of State Cup and be required to pay a $1500.00 forfeit fee.

Teams not using the continuity of roster will be seeded without the use of last year’s Cup results.

The National Cup Director reserves the right to modify this policy in the best interest of the tournament.
