Application and Registration Deadlines

Sometimes the Application and Registration deadlines are confused for each other. Perhaps this explanation will distinguish the the two.

Step 1: Apply to the tournament before the application deadline in order to be considered. While the application process does allow you to upload registration documents at that time, they are not required until after your team is accepted.

Step 2: After your application have been accepted, you must upload the registration documents before the registration deadline.

Application Deadline for both weekends: February 8th 2023

Registration Deadline for Girls weekend: March 23, 2023

Registration Deadline for Boys weekend: March 30, 2023

Application Links

When applying for the Nike Challenge Cup, you will need to do so using a GotSport account and not a GotSoccer account. If you have one, great! Otherwise, you will need to create one. The GotSoccer system will no longer be used starting in 2022, so we have moved to that system. Application deadline is Feburary 8, 2023.
