Governors Cup Introduction 

Based upon feedback from our membership, Ohio South is proud to announce a new State Tournament – The Governors Cup. This will be the conducted at the same sites and locations as Presidents Cup and will be launched in Spring 2019.

Why a 3rd State Tournament?

Part of the membership feedback we have received was that Presidents Cup was a great experience for our teams when it was added as the sister tournament to State Cup in 2010. Over the years, the Presidents Cup has grown in size, however, so has the relative ability level of many of the teams that enter the event. Accordingly, our membership has requested a new level of a state tournament to accommodate this growth. This event will give a new tier of teams an opportunity to be successful, while at the same time, providing a more equal level of competition for those teams that participate in Presidents Cup and Governors Cup.

Who is the Governors Cup for?

This event is designed as a third state tournament along with State Cup and Presidents Cup. The event is designed for those teams that seek the State tournament experience, but does not require the commitment of advancement to Regionals. The competition will end at the State level and is targeted for those teams that finished in the lower end of their brackets at Presidents Cup, or for new teams seeking that level of competition and desire a season ending State tournament as an experience for their players.

National League, Regional League and State League teams will not be permitted to enter this event.

This is part of the new eligibility standards Ohio South will be establishing for all three State Events; James A. Martella State Cup, Presidents Cup and Governor’s Cup.

In addition, Ohio South’s competitive leagues may choose to institute their own standards as to which of the three state tournaments their teams may participate. These new eligibility standards will also be announced shortly. 

When and Where will Governors Cup be held?

As this is the new ‘Sister’ tournament to Presidents Cup, this event will be held on the same dates and sites as Presidents Cup.

See dates and locations in the tournament information above.

Questions?

Due to some changes at the National and Regional level - we will be rolling out a side by side comparison table of eligibility requirements, who each event is for, expectations, rostering requirements, etc. for all three events in the near future. That way all teams can determine the best event for their needs.
