The Connecticut Junior Soccer Association (CJSA) will be hosting the final round of its Connecticut Cup Presented by DICK’S Sporting Goods this Saturday at Tunxis Mead Fields in Farmington. The Connecticut Cup is made available to teams playing in the Connecticut Junior Soccer Association that meet residency requirements.
Connecticut Cup Finals are scheduled in the 11U to 15U age groups for both boys and girls teams. Additionally, champions will be decided in the 17U Girls, 19U Boys and 19U Girls Divisions. Also important to note is two championship matches will be played at a later date following an invitation for a pair of teams to compete in the US Youth Soccer Eastern Presidents Cup this weekend in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania. Currently in Pennsylvania for the Eastern Presidents Cup are the Avon SC Crush 12U Girls and Simsbury SC Comets 15U Girls.
