The site navigation utilizes arrow, enter, escape, and space bar key commands. Left and right arrows move across top level links and expand / close menus in sub levels. Up and Down arrows will open main level menus and toggle through sub tier links. Enter and space open menus and escape closes them as well. Tab will move on to the next part of the site rather than go through menu items.
Please visit this page to view the roster and game card process.
State Cup assignors must be used. You cannot use club or league assignors for State Cup games. You will submit a ref request form for any new requests or for updates to an existing request. Please use the forms below.

We plan to have the schedules posted by 12/9. Teams will have until December 30th to get their game date finalized with the other team(s) without having to attend the mandatory scheduling meeting on Sunday, January 5th at 9:30am at the Ohio South AGM. All ref request forms with finalized location/time info must be submitted by Thursday, January 23rd.
All preliminary games must be played by Monday, April 7, 2020. Do not wait until the last day to play because if you get canceled, there will be no time for reschedules. We cannot grant extensions.
Your first Round Robin game must be played by April 30, 2019. Do not wait until the last day to play because if you get canceled, there will be no time for reschedules. We cannot grant extensions.
A neutral site must be found if a team would have to travel 60 miles on a school day and are not given at least two weekend date options to play.
Once you submit the referee request form, you should receive a copy of the form you submitted. You will also get an auto-email from Ohio South that your referee request form has been received. 48 hours after submission, you should check the referee scheduler below to double check that your State Cup self schedule game is on the ref schedule. Three days prior to your game, you should check it again to make sure refs have been assigned. http://www.thegameschedule.com/ohiosouth/
The home team is responsible for obtaining and paying for the field rental for both the self schedule preliminary game and the self schedule round robin game. Both teams must agree on the date and time of the self schedule game. If two teams meet at a neutral location, the home team has given up home field advantage and any rental fees will need to be split between both teams.
Club pass players may be used for State Cup. Players must be rostered to a team within your club that is an Ohio South/USYS carded team. Players may only be on one event roster for State Cup and/or Presidents Cup. They may not play for any other team in either event. If you wish to use a Club pass player, they must be included on your event roster that is turned in to the State office before the kickoff of the first State Cup game.

State Cup games take precedence over all other soccer events. We do the best we can for scheduling, but we cannot make everyone happy. Make sure you communicate early with your parents so they avoid scheduling SATs on the day of State Cup. There are 7 testing dates. Make sure they register for one of the other 5 test dates instead of in May.
Unfortunately, due to issues with field/time slot scheduling, referee availability, and having age groups play at the same time, we cannot schedule around coaches with multiple teams at the Round Robin level. If the teams advance to the Semis/Finals and play at the same time, we do try to move fields so they are next to each other.
No, teams and players may only play in one event as they run simultaneously.
We do not allow teams to play up in State Cup.
There are no refunds if your team withdraws.
The maximum number of players on the event roster for 9v9 is 16. The maximum number of players on the event roster for 11v11 is 22. Please note that for 11v11, a maximum of 18 players may be listed as game active.
