Helpful Application Hints

  • For clubs applying with multiple teams, please make sure to shorten your team name so the entire team name may be viewed when schedules appear.  Otherwise, two team names may not show completely and cause confusion. For example, if Club Ohio has Club Ohio Green 1 and Club Ohio Green 2 in the same age group the number may get cut off and show two Club Ohio Green teams.  A better solution would be to shorten the team names and label them Club Ohio G1 and Club Ohio G2.
  • Please select the desired level of play.  Ultimately our goal is to place your team in a division where the competition seems most appropriate.  We'll determine this based on your team's past performance in our tournaments and other Got Soccer tournaments.  We will also look at the team record you provide from your league.  Additionally, we will also consider your request for the level of play. Please note that requesting a level is just one factor in your placement and does not guarantee placement at that level. 
  • Please include all team resume information to the best of your ability.  Our tournament committee feels it is critical to have the ability to look at the competition each team has played against in league and tournament play in order for us to properly place your team and ensure a competitive tournament for all teams.
  • Teams from elite local clubs with no information given on the application will NEVER be placed in the lowest bracket unless resume indicates otherwise!
  • If you have a coach coaching more than one team, please email the Tournament Director, Costa Kalorides, at costa.kalorides@clubohiosoccer.com and include the following information: (1) the name of your coach; (2) the name of any other teams he/she is coaching; and (3) the age groups of all involved teams.  We'll do our best to help avoid scheduling conflicts and this works best for coaches with two teams.  For coaches with three teams, it will be more challenging and we suggest you have a backup coach.  If a coach has more than three teams, we will not be able to help them avoid scheduling conflicts.

Hotel Process

We are pleased to work with a hotel booking agency to book your hotels! Please visit our "Hotels" tab on the man menu for more information. This is a large event with over 350 teams per weekend. To ensure more housing options for large Clubs bringing multiple teams (8 or more), please contact GroupHousing Directly BEFORE blocking rooms at 1-888-290-3210 or contact@grouphousing.net. There is a two-night minimum.

Sports Medicine

Club Ohio is pleased to have an exclusive partnership with OhioHealth Sports Medicine.  They are experts with our young athletes.  Over the weekend of the tournament, their trainers will be stationed at each of our sites to provide any on-site medical treatment.  In addition, they have several urgent care locations around the city and first-class hospitals.

Tournament Awards

  • For the safety of players and parents, there will be no formal presentations of awards as is usually done.
  • For brackets with a Championship Final match, awards will be delivered to the field at the completion of the competition for distribution by the coach. Coaches or team managers, please take your team to an area far away from the field as there may be a match following yours.
  • For Round Robin brackets, 1st and 2nd place teams need to send one representative to the site’s headquarters to pick up medals to take back to their team for distribution.
  • Photos with the Finalist and Champion banners near the park’s HQ, and in the case of Spindler, they will be set up near the North and South (HQ) Shelter Houses (see field map) so we can spread out any team groups that want a picture.
