What's Included

Program Value:

Your player gets a pro-branded game day uniform that they keep, all scheduled games, weekly practices, and a trophy or medal at the end of the season. That’s an incredible entertainment value! In addition, you’ll get the family fun atmosphere of our game day as you watch your player have a great youth sports experience. Take some photos, and share them on social media. Compare the cost of league registration with a family trip to the movie theater for one night and you’ll quickly see that participation in our youth sports programs really stretches your entertainment value for your family, and gives your child all the benefits that youth sports participation offers.

Games

Season details vary slightly by age group. For most age divisions, a full season of ONE Cup Soccer league play includes eight scheduled games consisting of 7 regular season games and your first round playoff game in the end of season tournament. The U5 age group plays an abridged season of 6 games and does not participate in tournament play at that young age.

All teams (excluding U5) are invited to participate in the end of season tournament regardless of regular season performance. Our program is designed to promote player development through the regular season games so that each team has developed to their season potential for the end of season tournament.

Everyone plays in ONE Cup Soccer league play, and our coaches are encouraged to provide fair playing time for every player that attends practice, gives their best effort and is focused during the games and practice regardless of the player’s talent or ability.

Practices

Practice frequency, days, time and location are determined by our volunteer coaches (that is one of the many benefits to volunteer coaching) For additional information, please visit our FAQs.

Player’s Pro Branded Uniforms

Like all of the ONE Sports Nation Programs, ONE Cup Soccer utilizes pro branded player uniforms from XARA. Our players will wear the city or international series uniforms selected by your coach and they will include a game day jersey, matching shorts and socks because when you look good, you play good. Cleats are optional but recommended, and shin guards are required for your player’s safety.

Game Schedule Info

All regular season game schedules for the entire season are created by the commissioner and shared with participant families approximately one week prior to season launch via our online Schedules and Standings page. This will allow each family to make plans outside of sports during the season. Tournament games are determined by season standings, so those game times can only be shared following the end of the regular season once the teams are seeded for the tournament.

In addition, ONE Cup Soccer provides each certified head coach with an equipment bag for their use during the season that includes the basics needed to coach our teams.

ONE Cup Soccer is powered by volunteer coaches and we encourage your participation with your child.

Age Divisions

For Co-Ed ages 3-12. Age divisions: U5, U7, U9, U11 & U13. Players can always Play Up an age division but never down. There are no exceptions. Our Age cut-off is seasonal, not annual like other companies. This seasonal cut-off approach ensures that players progress to the next age division preserving the youth sports experience for the age eligible players in each age division. Annual age cut-offs only serve to allow older players to dominate an age division.

Trying to keep your team together but some players have aged out? No Problem, just have the whole team play up to the next age division.

Player Development Model

Our ONE Cup Soccer program was developed following the development model of US Youth soccer to ensure age appropriateness of equipment, field size and coach interaction during game play. Younger divisions play smaller sided soccer matches and shorter game durations. As players develop and grow into older age divisions, the rules progress as well.

Our Coach Certification provides age appropriate guidance for skill development with suggested practice routines and available coach resources.
