Women & U23 Tournaments
The Region is kicking off the Women’s Championship with the possibility that the winner may take part in a national final against teams from the other Regions. The format of the competition will be dependent upon the number of entries but it definitely will involve group play to determine the finalists.
The Men U-23 Championship will also take place the same weekend. The trophy has been dedicated to Gus Xikis, long time director of the Region’s cup program who passed away last year. Group play will be Saturday with semifinals and final on Sunday. Players born on or after 1 January 1998 are eligible for U23 registration.
Both tournaments are limited to 16 sides. All teams and players must be registered through their respective State Association or USASA affiliated league.
USASA Registration will close on MAY 31, 2021.
The USASA Region 1 Tournament entry fee is $105 and it includes all tournament costs/merchant fees.
