(See Below)



SSUL Recreational Cup

The SSUL Recreational Cup is the entry point for the WA Youth Soccer Recreational Cup, the State Tournament exclusively for U11-U19 recreational teams. Preliminary games are held within each respective geographical area in October and November, with the SSUL Finals being held prior to Thanksgiving. The SSUL Recreational Cup champions will then proceed to the State Quarterfinals the first weekend in December, with semifinals and finals the second weekend in December.


Please review the State Rules for Recreational Cup link at the bottom of this page for eligibility.

This cup is open to recreational teams only. A recreational team is defined as any team where the use of tryouts, invitations, recruiting or any like process to roster players selectively on the basis of talent or ability is prohibited.

SSUL administrators will determine whether teams fit the recreational classification.

Additionally your tournament roster is your registered team for the current league season - no guest players allowed.
