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
Teams accepted into the tournament and teams placed
on the waiting list will not be notified until after the tournament deadline of
January 17, 2020. 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.
