The Recreation Cup is our end of year event bringing in recreational teams from across the state.  In 2022, more than 160 recreational teams participated in the tournament, and we expect the same, if not more teams to compete this May. 
The Recreation Cup is considered to be an Unrestricted US Club Sanctioned event designed for Recreation level teams. Teams from outside governing bodies, such as NCYSA, are permitted to participate in the event but will need to follow specific instructions found on our Check-In Page. Clubs interested in participating should email our Tournament Staff HERE. 
For this year's event, teams will be placed in the age group as determined by their club’s recreation program age group structure. This allows recreation teams to play in the age group and format they are accustomed to playing. Please see the Recreation Cup Rules for detailed information regarding age brackets and limits.
