The style of the tournament (bracket, round-robin, pool play) is based on the number of teams in the division. Generally the winner of the tournament will be invited to the Area Q League Tournament in December, with the chance to advance to the Section 10 League Tournament in February or March in Bakersfield.

Each player will be provided with a jersey, shorts, and socks. In addition they will need soccer cleats (not baseball cleats) and shin guards. If your child has their own ball it should be a size 3 for this level. Uniforms will be distributed by the coach of each team prior to the first training game.
