NORTHERN ARIZONA INVITATIONAL

Thanks to all the teams from in- and out-of-state that have supported the Northern Arizona Invitational over the past 7 years.  Each year we have had a record-breaking number of teams join us.

 

The Flagstaff Soccer Club invites you to participate in the Northern Arizona Invitational May 21-22 2016 (girls weekend) and May 28-29, 2016 (boys weekend) in the cool pines of northern Arizona. This is the ideal setting to close your season. NAI is proud to be able to play on some of the best fields in the state.  Please make sure to apply early to guarantee acceptance as we anticipate having to turn teams away this year.

 

TOURNAMENT DATES: Saturday and Sunday, May 21-22, 2016 (girls weekend) and May 28-29, 2016 (boys weekend).  Application deadline is April 1st. Register your girls team here. Register your boys team here.

 

CLASSIFICATION/DIVISIONS: The tournament is sanctioned USYS AZ class A and G, and Arizona Youth Soccer Association (AYSA). Divisions include U8, U9, U10, U11, U12, U13, U14, U15, U16, U17, U18 for girls and boys both.  Divisions that do not have at least 3 teams will be combined into a mixed division with the next oldest age group. This tournament is open to teams from other organizations with the proper paperwork. If you have questions, please contact the Tournament Director.

 

ENTRY FEE: Registration fee of $350 (U8 will be 7v7 with GK), $400 (U9-U10 8v8 with GK), $500 (U11 will be 9v9), $575 (U12-U14), $600 (U15-U18) payable by credit card or check (postmarked by April 1st, 2016). Teams withdrawing after acceptance will forfeit the entire entry fee. Make checks payable to Flagstaff Soccer Club Tournament. We hope to host 75+ teams (per weekend) and the number of teams will be limited in each division, so early registration is encouraged. You may submit your application without a final roster and provide an updated roster the week prior to the tournament.
