Sportsmanship Cup

The 23nd Annual Beverly Hills Sportsmanship Cup


AYSO Invitational
Invitation and Information


The 23nd Annual Sportsmanship Cup will take place on Saturday and Sunday, December 14 and 15, 2019

If your region has playoffs scheduled for the rain out weekend (January 11-12, 2020) and that is preventing you from registering for the tournament, please contact the tournament directors to discuss alternative refund possibilities. This does not apply to conflicts with other tournaments, only with area or section allstar or extra playoffs.


Come to a different kind of tournament - a tournament in which the prize is for good sportsmanship. Our tournament is timed to take place before the competitive tournament season has begun. You'll have the chance to have four close to full-length practice games, for fun, to experiment with line-ups, with no pressure to win every game and with every team having a chance to win regardless of goals scored or allowed. We do everything to provide balanced competition. We know everyone will play hard but we have done this since 1997 and the players loved playing (and the referees loved refereeing) without the pressure. Extra, All Star, tournament, select and regular season teams are all eligible. So join us. Information on how to register on-line is at the end of the invitation and at the end of this page.

Fees must be sent promptly following on-line registration. Your check will be cashed unless your team is immediately rejected for participation in the tournament. Uncashed checks will be returned to the address on the checks, unless your checks bear the address of the National headquarters, in which case you may specify the address of the region as posted on its website or in eAYSO. If for any reason the tournament is completely rained out or cannot be played on December 14 and 15, you are committed to playing on our rainout dates, January 11 and 12, 2020. If our rainout dates are also completely rained out or games cannot be played on those dates, a full refund will be made. No refund for cancellation by a team unless a replacement team is found or the election to withdraw notified not later than 30 days before tournament. See our detailed Refund Policy for details. Please email our Tournament Director if the rainout dates conflict with your Area or Section all star or extra playoffs.

We must emphasize that no registration will be considered complete unless we have received payment by regional check. The deadline for receiving the check will be Friday December 6, 2019, as we will begin scheduling the tournament the following morning and a team not fully paid up by then will not be scheduled. Contact us if you are having difficulty meeting this deadline but unless we are 100% certain that we will receive payment, your team will lose priority and will have to be waitlisted.

Registrations will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. Since we require you to register online, you will have a priority date based on your date of online registration provided that payment is received within 7 days or Friday December 6, 2019 whichever comes first.

Proceeds will be used for Region 76 field improvements and to support All Star and Tournament teams, especially players needing help to participate in traveling teams. In addition, we may use the proceeds to support inner city AYSO programs.


Each team participating in the tournament must provide at least one (1) team of three (3) qualified referees. Referee teams from outside of Region 76 must be submitted online NO LATER THAN THURSDAY, DECEMBER 5 to be considered for a full refund. The referee deposit will be completely refunded within two to three weeks after end of tournament if the referee team officiates three (3) games. Partial refunds discretionary. Please be patient as it can be difficult to get all this done over the Christmas break. More details (and information specific to Region 76 teams) can be found on our Refereeing Info Page.


No fee for dropping a player from your roster or changing your roster. Rosters must be submitted by Sunday December 8, 2019. You may make changes after that date but only if the revised roster is submitted with a Regional Commissioner signature.


All the players will receive a tournament pin and all coaches will receive a T-shirt (limit 2 per team). This is a Sportsmanship tournament. The team with the most sportsmanship points in each division will be awarded the "Sportsmanship Trophy". We may also award second and third place trophies in larger divisions. Come and play to have fun, tune up and show what good sportsmanship is all about.


The tournament will begin at 8 am on Saturday, December 14. Games may start as late as 5:00 pm. Final schedules will be posted here - they will not be mailed. The schedules will be posted on Sunday evening, December 8.
