Tournament Sanctioning:


INSURANCE REMINDER 
MSYSA provides sanctioned tournaments general liability insurance at no cost. All MSYSA affiliated teams who participate in MSYSA sanctioned tournaments will also be provided secondary medical insurance*. Any/all teams not affiliated with MSYSA must provide or carry their own medical insurance to MSYSA sanctioned tournaments. MSYSA strongly recommends that its sanctioned tournaments require that non-MSYSA teams show proof of medical insurance. For US Youth Soccer affiliated teams, a Permission to Travel or Notification form approved by their home state association is usually sufficient.

*Secondary medical insurance extended to affiliated tournaments and their participants WILL NOT cover any potential COVID-related claims as COVID is considered an illness and not an injury or accident.

SANCTIONING DEADLINE: Tournament Sanctioning materials with payment are due by February 1st each year. Sanctioning requests/materials received after the deadline will be subject to nonrefundable late fees. 

COST OF SANCTIONING:
 The cost of tournament sanctioning is $400 per year ($250 application/processing fee + $150 Sanctioning Bond). Sanctioning requests made after February 1st are $900 ($400 fee + $500 late fee). 
Following the completion of your tournament, you will have 15 days to submit post tournament report. If you are able to submit your fully-completed post tournament reports within that time-frame, the $150 Sanctioning Bond will be returned. The post tournament report form is located at the bottom of this page.

SANCTIONED TOURNAMENT ADVERTISING: All tournaments receive a complimentary listing on The Tournament Center website. Additionally, tournaments may purchase advertising medias through MSYSA (i.e. Website exposure, E-mail Blasts, Mailing Lists, Magazine Advertisements, etc.). Contact Ryan Theisen for more information about advertising opportunities.
