One Cup Soccer Frequently Asked League Questions
We’ve compiled some of the most common questions we receive concerning our leagues. If you’re looking for franchise opportunities, please visit our franchise section.
ONE Cup Soccer has had to adopt a no-refund policy. When you sign up for our league we are expecting your full commitment to participate. We build rosters throughout the registration process and order your size specific player equipment after you register. We are counting on your participation because there are a limited number of roster spots on each team – If for some reason your player is not able to participate, we will remove them from the assigned team and provide your jersey, but we can not issue a refund or credit.
Yes! – At ONE Sports Nation – the earlier you register for our programs, the more you can save. Early registrations not only secure your roster position, it helps the league commissioner plan for the upcoming season and we reward you for that patronage with a discounted rate. The best player rate of the season will always by on the opening day of the preceding season. Stop by our Game Day or register on-line!
Great! – We love the opportunity to teach the game of soccer to a new player. The ONE Cup Soccer philosophy is to “offer competitive fun with the focus on developing players for their next level of competition while keeping them excited about playing sports.” Our player development model will help your coach teach the fundamentals needed to develop your players skills within your age division. Be sure to work with your player at home too!
You may want to purchase shin guards for your player. Cleats are recommended but not required.
All ONE Cup Soccer locations are independently owned and operated under the One Sports Nation brand. For information on your specific league, please contact your league commissioner.
The coaches will receive all game day equipment from the league and distribute them prior to your first game.
Your player may receive a slightly larger player equipment size than ordered due to inventory levels with our suppliers. We will do our very best to supply you with the size ordered but in some instances it is not possible. It is always better to go up in size rather than down in size.
Please refer to the following guidelines when ordering your player's game day uniform.
Practice & Games Days
The game schedule for the entire season will be posted on YOUR league’s website the week before the season starts. This will allow you to make plans around your basketball commitment.
U5 – four 8 minute quarters
U7 – four 10 minute quarters
U9 – two 20 minute halves
U11 – two 30 minute halves
U13 – two 30 minute halves
The league commissioner will post the season schedule at least one week prior to opening game day. The availability of the schedule will be communicated to all current players. Be sure to sign up for the weekly league communication to keep current on league activity, discounts and promotions.
In the event that games are canceled due to weather, the League commissioner will communicate the ability to play make-up games to all of the teams. The ability to make the games up may be dependent on factors outside of the commissioner’s control, such as venue availability, event staff availability etc. We can guarantee that there will be 8 games scheduled each season – unfortunately we can’t guarantee that the weather will allow us to play all of them.
Yes – ONE Cup Soccer is powered by volunteer coaches. We require all first time ONE Cup Soccer coaches to complete the league coach certification to instill the focus and philosophy of our program, and provide valuable resources to get you started. ONE Cup Soccer provides all coaches a coach practice bag for your use during the season (a $100 value).
At ONE Sports Nation programs, we expect our players, coaches and parents to abide by our code of conduct and support the entire youth sports community.
The OFFICIALS are the only ones that make the calls on game day and your admission to OUR event does not include the right to yell at or argue with our officials. If your behavior at OUR event is deemed inappropriate, you may be warned or asked to leave the event. Failure to do so WILL result in penalties to your team, up to and including game forfeiture. We do not tolerate poor behavior on the sidelines.
This program is for the kids.
Once you have selected which of our ONE Sports Nation leagues is closest to you, scroll to the bottom of league page to find your game day location.
Sometimes we find it necessary to schedule travel games with a neighboring ONE Sports Nation league to provide competition and variety depending on the amount of teams in each age division.
League Commissioners will not know if there will be travel games for your team until the schedule is published one week prior to the first game day. Game schedules will reflect travel games and the game location. Travel games are typically less than 20 miles away from your HOME game location.
We do our very best to keep travel games to a minimum if they are necessary. You can rest assured you will get the same program at our other ONE Sports Nation leagues, just a different game day location.
