Must Read: Information for Teams

Building on the success of the Autumn Champions Shootout, this progressive event will run adjacent to the Summer League season. Winners advance to the “winners” bracket; losers advance to the “consolation” bracket. Those teams left standing will advance to Finals weekend!

Soccer cups around the world are played in an ongoing, during-the-season, format, and we want to bring that excitement to TCSL players and families.

All teams are guaranteed two (2) matches, with those that advance likely playing three (3) matches.
