Tournament Status Information

US Soccer has established two forms of tournaments:

Restricted tournaments are open only to teams that are members of US Youth Soccer and whose players have a valid US Youth Soccer player pass issued by one of the 55 member associations of US Youth Soccer.

Unrestricted tournaments are open to all members of the US Soccer community and foreign teams with permission from their National Association. If you invite a non US Youth Soccer team to your tournament, please contact the NJYS office to make sure insurance coverage exists for that team.
