The Sigi Schmid AYSO Open Cup is formatted as a pool-play tournament, with each age division bracketed into playing pools. Each team will play a minimum of three games in their respective pools; teams will advance from qualifying pools based on pool play standings points.

Teams must check in at their designated field prior the start of their first game. The referee coordinators will use game cards to ensure players match the approve roster submitted. Any late players must be escorted to the check-in station by a team official along with their player registration form and must be cleared before participating in any games.

Historically, the weather will be in the 70-80 degree range, so teams should be prepared by taking sufficient water and wearing appropriate clothing. We will provide a more accurate forecast closer to the tournament date.
