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 to 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.

SANCTIONING DEADLINE: Tournament Sanctioning materials 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 $125 per year (application fee). Sanctioning requests made after February 1st are $625 ($125 application fee + $500 late fee).

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 Josh Sherman for more information about advertising opportunities.
