Why Coerver Cup?

The So Cal Coerver Cup is the most unique small sided playing format available. It replicates the "real game" experience much closer than traditional 3v3 competition. The Coerver Cup is a 5v5 Fast Paced, Competitive, Attacking Soccer Tournament played on Quality Fields.

In the Coerver Cup format, the field size allows players to get maximum touches on the ball, and allows for multiple coaching opportunities. Players will be presented with a number of 1v1 situations for them to practice their skills on the ball. The 5v5 format will assert the importance of a team aspect and encourage everyone to communicate and work hard for one another.

Coerver Cup is a great individual and team event that will help your players prepare for the upcoming season and transition to the larger pitch. With 2 point goals, substitutions on the fly, and a 24-minute running clock, you’ll be sure to enjoy a competition platform unlike any other you have participated on before.

So Cal Coerver Cup is a local event that is projected to grow into a regional and national competition.

In addition to the tournament games, there will be opportunities to improve individual soccer skill by way of Coerver Coaching. The So Cal Coerver Cup will be much more than just a tournament; it will be a soccer experience.  Each tournament will feature Free Coerver Clinics during the event to help your player(s) improve their skill level and game intelligence.

In case of tie, winner decided by head to head record

If knockout stage game is tied after regulation, they will play one (1) 5 minute golden goal period

If still tied, penalty kick shootout to decide (1 for 1 Golden Goal) …yes it can end on the first shooters

How The Penalty Kick Shootout Works: 

Kicker starts at the half line, Goalkeeper on the goal line 

Referee signals start with a blow of the whistle

Kicker has 5 seconds to shoot the ball, no rebounds

Goal is awarded if ball passes the goal line, shot must have occurred before the 5 second rule
