See below for answers to our most common questions regarding youth soccer tournaments. More detailed information specific to individual tournaments can be found in the tournament programs that are released with the schedule and posted on the schedules & results page. Please note that this information does not apply to Starfire’s indoor tournaments and jamborees.
When are schedules for each tournament released?
Unless you are notified otherwise, the schedule will be posted on the Wednesday that falls nine days before the tournament start date.
What documents do I need to provide for player eligibility?
WA and OR Teams: Your official club roster that is signed by your club or association registrar, including player names, birth dates, and jersey numbers.
US Teams from outside of WA & OR: Your official club roster as stated above AND permission to travel authorization from your state organization AND a signed/completed Washington Youth Soccer Concussion Compliance Form.
Canadian Teams: Permission to travel paperwork from your governing association as well as your official club roster AND signed/completed Washington Youth Soccer Concussion Compliance Form. Please note that with BC Soccer clubs, your official roster and permission to travel paperwork can be on the same document, but we will need player birth dates and jersey numbers on that form.
What is needed for guest players?
All guest players must be registered with US Club Soccer or US Youth Soccer and, in order to be eligible to play, must be added to the official club roster in PRINTED form or must have their player card if they are written on to the roster by hand. Handwritten guest players without a player card will not be eligible to participate.
I am my team’s manager, do I need to add everyone to my online roster?
We ask that every manager take the step of inviting players/parents to join the online roster (instructions found here). Joining the online roster gives access to important tournament communication, including schedule changes, weather and traffic alerts, special activities and offers. We have found that receiving these communications greatly improves the overall tournament experience for those kept in the loop. However, if players/parents opt not to join the roster, it will not affect their eligibility to play.
Are tents and benches provided?
Starfire supplies tents at all fields, and benches at Starfire fields 1-4 and 9-11. Benches are not provided on Starfire grass fields, or at Valley Ridge. In rare instances, we may not be able to provide tents for select fields at satellite locations, but all teams will be notified via email in such an event.
I want to referee at a tournament. How can I get assigned to matches?
Northwest Soccer Officials handles referee assignments for all Starfire and Starfire Managed tournaments. More information, including upcoming clinics, can be found on their website.
What happens if a tournament is canceled due to COVID-19 restrictions?
All registered tournament participants will be refunded in full if a tournament is canceled due to government restrictions and guidance surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic.
