Participation in the Connecticut Cup Presented by Dick’s Sporting Goods is made available to teams playing in the Connecticut Junior Soccer Association (CJSA) that meet residency requirements. The Connecticut Cup is played in the fall for both boys and girls teams in the 11U and 12U (9v9), 13U, 14U and 15U age divisions. During the spring season, the Connecticut Cup is hosted for boys and girls teams in the 11U and 12U (9v9), 13U to 17U and 19U age groups.
Winners of the Connecticut Cup become eligible for regional play in their respective age groups at the US Youth Soccer (USYS) Eastern Presidents Cup, which will be hosted next June in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania. Regional winners then move onto the USYS National Presidents Cup the following month in Wichita, Kansas. The USYS Presidents Cup provides a progressive and competitive environment to teams that might not otherwise get the opportunity to participate in a series of unique experiences highlighting competition, camaraderie and community.
