In addition to operating competitions, such as NPL events, the National Cup and state championship events, US Club Soccer also sanctions tournaments for its members.
This tournament sanctioning program allows both US Club Soccer teams and also those registered with other U.S. Soccer affiliates the ability to participate in competitions. Travel permissions are not required for US Club Soccer members, tournament insurance is available for members, and supplemental insurance is available to tournament hosts to cover all participating teams.
NOTE (as of November 2015): Important updates have been made to the sanctioned tournament hosting application and terms. Pursuant to the U.S. Soccer player safety campaign, any tournament projected to have 64 or more teams at U-11 and older age groups must have an adequate number of certified athletic trainers or other healthcare providers in attendance. For more information on this requirement, please visit the “Sanction Your Tournament” Web page and refer to the “certified athletic trainers at sanctioned tournaments” section.
