Tournament News and Tips


Hosting Tournaments and Safety for All!

Tournaments are a great way to offer more soccer for more kids, raise money for the Region and provide everyone with a wonderful memory. Tournament staff needs to be aware that the safety and well being of all the participants (players, parents, visitors and staff) should also be considered when planning a tournament. Below are some ideas to consider when you begin to plan for the tournament and information to provide to teams who will be attending:

  • Necessary field permits for your facilities
  • Special Event policy in place; certificates issued
  • Parking – is there enough?  If not, what to do with the overflow?
  • Shade or picnic area – where located and is there enough?
  • EMT's scheduled
  • Extra trash service scheduled
  • Bathroom facilities – is there enough? If not, schedule portables
  • Vendors – are they scheduled? Have they provided certificates of insurance?

Provide the following information to teams attending: 

  • Directions to the tournament and surrounding hotels, restaurants, parks, etc.
  • Remind everyone about the AYSO ratio of adults to players
  • Provide hydration tips and electrolyte replacement drinks
  • Provide healthy snack tips
  • Provide a list of "Don'ts" such as (anything specific to your facilities or Region)
  • No barbecues
  • No pets
  • Remind teams not to rent 18 passenger vans if they're traveling to your tournament
