Slush Cup Registration
Step 1 – Registration is online at www.ewzsaslushcup.com select the registration button and enter all team information, including contact information for all coaching staff. Be sure to fully complete the registration process, you will be sent an email confirmation that you have registered for the Slush Cup Tournament. If you do not receive a confirmation email, then you may not have completed all steps of the registration. The West Zone Soccer Association is not responsible for teams that do not properly register their teams through the online system.
Step 2 – Payment must be received in order for your team to be registered for the tournament. You will be prompted to pay online during the registration process, or you can send payment to our office – located at 15430 - 93 Avenue Edmonton, AB T5R 5H3. Office hours are Monday – Friday from 10:00 – 2:00 and cheques can be made out to EWZSA Slush Cup Tournament. Registrations are considered complete only after payment has been received. Payment does not guarantee your team a spot in the tournament, it confirms your registration is complete. Teams accepted into the tournament will be notified after registration closes.
Step 3 – All registration and payments must be received by the tournament deadline of January 18, 2019. If the registration fee has not been received by January 18, 2019 then your team will be removed from the tournament. Confirmation emails will be sent to the teams accepted into the Slush Cup Tournament after January 18, 2019.
Step 4 – You will need to upload your official Provincial Roster (ASA Roster, CMSA Roster or travel permit for out of Province teams) to the website. This is the roster that shows players birthdate and player registration number. You may need to contact your soccer organization to receive your official roster. All players must be registered to a team for the Current Indoor Soccer Season to be eligible to participate in the tournament, and must be listed on an official provincial roster. Official rosters for guest players should be carried with you at all times during the tournament in case of a dispute.
Step 5 – You will need to add your players to the tournament roster on the tournament website with their jersey numbers, this is the list of players that will be playing with your team for the tournament, be sure to indicate if the player is a guest player. Once the schedules are posted you will be able to print your game sheets. All players must be listed on the tournament roster by February 27, 2019.
Waiting List: The Slush Cup Tournament is a very popular tournament and last year we had over 100 teams on the waiting list. Registering early is the best way to avoid being placed on the waiting list, but there are also other parameters that determine whether a team is placed on the wait list:
· We group the teams for the tournament into groups of 4 or 6 and we do our best to ensure that every team has teams of equal calibre to play. This also includes trying to create groups where there are equal number of Calgary, Edmonton and other out of town teams as most teams do not want to travel to play teams they already play in their regular leagues.
· Availability at the indoor soccer facilities. Most soccer facilities do not confirm our tournament hours until January, therefore we are not sure how many teams we can accept until after our hours have been confirmed.
· The Slush Cup usually has 1 or 2 groups for every tier (tier 1 – tier 5) for most age groups, we do our best to review online league standings to get the most competitive group for each team. We will not place a team that registered early, but their group was already full into a group that is above or beneath their calibre. Tournament organizers reserve the right to move teams within pools.
· Teams accepted into the tournament and teams placed on the waiting list will not be notified until after the tournament deadline of January 18, 2019. We cannot confirm a team’s acceptance into the tournament until registration is closed and final tournament groups have been formed. Please do not ask for confirmation before that date. We have moved the registration deadline up so that teams can cancel hotel bookings if needed. The Slush Cup Tournament is not responsible for teams that book hotels without a cancellation policy and are not accepted into the tournament.
