DIRECTIONS FOR TEAM ADMIN ON HOW TO ENTER YOUR TEAM IN THIS EVENT
Balance Due by: $400 entry fee must be paid in by March 1. Third payment of remaining fees depended on number of teams in bracket are due April 1, 2019.
Due to the 57% cost increase by Regional NCS, we had to raise our cost and tried to minimize as much as we could by implementing the different level of fees based off of the number of teams in the age bracket. These rates keep our increase to a 20-30%.
The fees for WVSA State Championship is:
5+ teams (requires Preliminary Games) $750 plus ref fees as posted in chart
U16 and up
2 - 4 teams $900
1 team $1200
2018 Champion/Finalist will need to have their rosters in system by Feb 26th to have their roster continuity verified prior to random draw for remaining teams.
By March 1, every team playing in the WV State League must have the minimum number of players on the official team roster.

Teams applying for the cup competition must compete in the WV State League, Eastern Regional League or an approved league. The league competition must consist of a minimum of one (1) game against each of three different teams in the league. Select teams are not eligible for any cup competition.
U12 must play in the WV State League to qualify and be seeded for State Cup.
U13 and up can qualify by playing in WV State League, Ohio Buckeye League, National League, EDP League, Great Lakes League, National Capital Soccer League, Shawnee Soccer League and PA West League. Teams playing in these leagues will need to submit to the Director of Competitions your team name, the league playing in, age group and division so it can be verified.
Other leagues will be looked at but the Director of Competitions will need to receive an email with the name of your team, age division and the league you wish to have considered as a qualifier before you commit otherwise you might have to play state league as well. However clubs will be required to provide teams for our state league so those that cannot use another league can qualify (as needed). It does not have to be the same team that is in State Cup for example WVFC 03 Black is in State Cup ...WVFC 03 Red can be the team provided for State League if a team is needed.
WVSA will enter State Cup Champion teams in the Eastern Regional Championships in Barboursville/Charleston, WV on June 27, 2019 in the following brackets.
