Who can play 5v5 soccer?
SSC’s 5v5 tournaments are typically one day soccer events that are open to players of all skill level, ages U8-Adult.
Who can coach?
Anyone can coach a team and we strongly encourage you to enter a team. The primary job of the coach is to cheer on the players, make substitutions and get the team to the correct field at the correct time. It will be very simple, fun and rewarding!
How do I determine which age bracket is appropriate for my team?
Based on the 2016 fall season, teams should be registered in the age-group category of the oldest player on the team, even if players’ ages span more than one age group. See age chart below.
How many players can I have on the roster?
Teams may carry a maximum of eight (8) players and a minimum of five (5) players. A team’s entry fee is the same, regardless of the number of players on the team.
Who needs to attend check-in?
One member and/or coach from each team must attend check-in to show proof of player registration/age and provide any additional forms.
How do I know my team’s registration is complete?
Once a team has completed the online registration and paid in full, a confirmation email will be sent to the team’s primary contact.
*If a confirmation email has not been received, the team’s primary contact should check their ‘junk’ or ‘spam’ mail; then, contact the Tournament Director (firstname.lastname@example.org) or (email@example.com).
What do I bring to check-in?
Each team must bring the following to check-in:
- Completed Team Roster.
- Proof of Age: Each player listed on the completed team roster must present a copy of their birth certificate, government issued ID, or a current player pass. * If your players do not have a player card, a signed letter from your club register showing player name, player ID, and birth date will be accepted.
- Completed and signed Athlete Waiver and Medical Release form.
How are the divisions formed?
Teams are placed in divisions based on age and gender. Teams that span more than one age group will be placed in the division of the oldest player on the team. U18 and older (including adults) will be combined into one division. Divisions are made at the discretion of the 5v5 tournament committee and tournament director.
When will schedules be available?
Schedules will be available online within 2 or 3 days of the tournament date.

Are there any player restrictions on casts, or jewelry?
