CLASSIC CUP RULES

Sporting Kaw Valley offers a spring soccer league for high school players from Lawrence and surrounding communities, and you are invited to register. If you want to continue playing and developing and you are not already on a Premier team, this is for you. In past years we did not have a spring option for players your age who did not sign with a Premier team. Now we do!

This league is much less expensive than Premier soccer, and it involves less travel. You will play 8 league games in Lawrence, and you will receive quality coaching from a great staff, with a curriculum developed by our Sporting Kaw Valley premier coaching staff. You will also have the opportunity to play two Premier tournaments during the season. This mirrors exactly what we do for the younger Boys Academy League brackets.

 
SEASON CALENDAR

 
Academy Uniforms


BOYS & GIRLS ACADEMY (including JUNIOR ACADEMY) uniforms are the same as they were for the 2016-2017 (Academy uniforms change every two years due to our Adidas contract and the limited lifespan and availability of uniform styles). ALL brand new ACADEMY PLAYERS IN LAWRENCE, MANHATTAN AND TOPEKA & SALINA will need to purchase new uniforms to play in the fall 2017 season.If you played in the Academy league last year, and your uniform still fits, then you do not need to purchase a new one.

 
SENIOR ACADEMY LEAGUE DETAILS

FORMAT
The league will play a 7V7 format, which is gaining popularity throughout the world. The format allows for smaller rosters, more touches per player, and it more easily accommodates the dreaded "six man rule". The league will consist of 8 games played in Lawrence. In addition, we will play two Premier tournaments (11V11 format) by making an Academy Select team in each age group with the top players. That will provide you with at least six more games at the Premier level. You will have two practices per week. We will implement a curriculum to address the specific development needs of this age group. This league will help you to develop and compete at a higher level, and you will see the benefits next fall!

TEAM FORMATION
We will attempt to make teams with players from the same school. If you live in a community near Lawrence we will roster you together with your teammates or class mates. If possible we will schedule local practices for your team. Players from Lawrence will practice at our soccer complex.

COST
League cost is the same as for the other age groups in the Academy. The cost will be $199 for the spring league. Uniforms are the same as the Academy wears. There is also an option to participate in the Academy Select program where players form tournament teams and play in 1 or 2 tournaments during the season. If chosen for the Senior Academy Select teams there will be a $85 tournament fee per tournament.
