The 2017 Ortho Carolina Twin City Friendlies
will be held from January 20th to 22nd.
This event is an outstanding "Friendly" preseason tournament for 11 to 14 (15 boys) Classic Teams to prepare for the Spring season.
All teams are guaranteed 3 games, and all players will receive a participation gift at Team Check In.
Entry Deadline: January 1, 2017 with rolling acceptance.
The Friendlies will follow the NCYSA directive on heading:
NO HEADING is allowed in any small sided match (12U and younger). In matches for 13U and older, the roster/team could include 12U and younger players. A 12U player on the 13U roster/team, may head the ball. For the player 11U or younger playing on a 13U team or older, if heading occurs by a player 11U and younger, the referee will not stop play and issue an indirect free kick. It would be very difficult for a referee to be able during the run of play to determine if a player that heads the ball is 11U or younger or 12U and older. As stated by the Federation, it will be the coach and parent’s responsibility to “police” a child 11U and younger on heading in a 13U and older match.
All games will be played at BB&T Soccer Park.
NO SCORES ARE POSTED DURING THE FRIENDLIES, SO AS TO ALLOW TEAMS TO PLAY IN A FRIENDLY ENVIRONMENT
AND NOT BE IMPACTED BY GOT SOCCER RANKINGS.
Teams within 60 miles of BB&T Soccer Park may be scheduled to play a Friday night game.
Boys teams will tentatively play 2 games on Saturday and 1 game on either Friday or Sunday.
Girls teams will tentatively play 2 games on Sunday and 1 game on either Friday or Saturday.
