District II Cup History

The District II Fall Cup is unlike any other youth soccer competition in Northern California. Each year, through the efforts of hundreds of volunteers, the District II Cup brings together boys' and girls' competitive and sometimes recreational teams from ages U9 – U19 for weekends of fun.
 
The District II Cup has grown to be an enormous event. Annually, 550 to 600 teams participate over three weekends — making the District II Cup the largest youth soccer competition in CYSA-N, and one of the largest in California.

The District II Cup has two primary purposes:
  • Fundraising — Proceeds are used to fund many different programs in the district, and are also deposited into our special account for building new playing fields.
  • Competition — The two weekends give District II teams and selected teams from neighboring districts a chance to test themselves in a cup-style competition (as opposed to regular league play) against their peers.
 
To facilitate balanced competition, an attempt is made to divide large age groups according to team record, and to "seed" within groupings. Several things are important to note about this process:
  • This is not "March Madness," nor the NCAA soccer championships. There is no full-time, paid committee to consider "power ratings" or strength of schedule, in order to rank the 550+ teams and make it a perfect process. (What's more, when was the last time that there were no arguments about the NCAA's seeding?)
  • Seeding is based on performance in last year's fall league and District II Fall Cup play, as well as in the league standings to-date.
  • Spring play, including the District II Spring Cup, is generally not considered — because spring is considered a developmental season.
  • Remember that the U14 – U19 District II Fall Cup is seeded in early September, before there has been much, if any, league play. For the U9s – U13s, about half of the current season can be taken into account.
 
Once the groupings and match-ups are set, the information is then forwarded to the individual host leagues, which must find fields (never easy), create schedules, and assign referees (also a perennial challenge). Delays sometimes occur due to rain-outs, field closings by cities and park districts, scheduling problems, and plain old human shortcomings.
 
In virtually every league the majority of work falls on a very small minority of volunteers. If you'd like to contribute to the District Cup's success and help enhance the process — get involved!
 
The District II board is committed to continuing to tackle this monumental undertaking each year to offer boys and girls a fun soccer experience, and to raise money for the District's many worthwhile programs.
