Teams not on the accepted list will be kept on our waiting list, unless they choose to be removed. Please notify us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to be removed from the waiting list. Team not accepted will have their checks destroyed or returned.

All accepted teams must submit their roster through GotSoccer.com. We encourage players to include their: Player #, Player Name, Position, High School, Height, Weight, Year of Graduation, GPA, Phone #, Email. This should be completed no later than Friday, January 8, 2016. If your team wishes to bring additional player profiles to the tournament they may do so. However, the one you submit to us via GotSoccer.com will be used to create a roster book for the College Coaches.
Player passes are NOT required. However, all players must fill out an Afrim’s Sports WAIVER FORM online here through their mySAM account. If you have never played at Afrim’s Sports before, please follow the prompts for New Customer Registration to create a mySAM account. Once you fill out your information, you will be sent an e-mail confirming this registration. You must click on the link in the confirmation e-mail in order for your registration to go through. Once you do that, you need to log back into your account and you will be automatically prompted to accept the waiver. After this is complete, please call our office so that we can add you to the appropriate roster. Anyone who is NOT registered within the Afrim’s Sports’ registration waiver system by the deadline set accepts full liability for any injuries/accidents that may occur.

Please encourage your players to contact college coaches on their own, especially if there are specific schools that they are interested in attending. While many coaches return to our tournament year after year, we find that it is still important for players to email coaches ahead of time. This contact helps to ensure that a specific coach will attend the event and also increases the likelihood that a coach will view one of your team’s games. Contact information for coaches is always available on the college’s wesbite. Search in "Athletics" and sometimes in the "Student Life" section. Many programs have a specific recruiting form. Otherwise the coach’s email address will be listed on a "Staff Directory" page. Emailing coaches is a critical part in a student’s effort to be recruited to play in college.
Game schedules will be posted on our website approximately one (1) week prior to the tournament date. Game times will only be given out once your roster is submitted and all of your players have completed their waivers through Afrim's Sports' MySAM registration system.
Team managers will be notified of their game times. Parents will need to contact their team manager for these times and should not be calling us directly.
