Dear Club/League President,
The New York State West Youth Soccer Association invites you to prepare a bid for hosting the State Cup soccer final four championships in the spring of 2008 and 2009.
We are seeking organizations that would like to host the tournament, which historically has been held the first weekend after Memorial Day. The tournament has four teams in each division: U12, U13, U14, U15, U16, U17, U18, U19, with both boys and girls teams.
For 2008 and 2009, we intend to play some of the tournament matches on Friday evening, with the rest being played all during the day on Saturday and Sunday.
We need 9 or 10 fields to host the tournament: 4 large fields suitable for U16, U17, U18, and U19 teams; 4 medium fields for U13, U14, U15 and U16 teams, and 1 or 2 small fields for U12 teams playing small-sided matches. The actual recommended field sizes are noted below.
If you are interested to host the tournament, please complete and return the attached Bid Form to Rich Wagner at 1stVP@nyswysa.org by April 23.
If you have questions, feel free to send e-mail or call me at (607) 937-1705.
