SLSG Spring Classic - FAQ's

Why should my team attend your event?

Because we are the top tournament rpovider in the entire REGION! SLSG hosts several of the top events in the region and now we'll be utilizing the top TURF facilities at Creve Coeur Park Soccer Complex, O'Fallon (IL) Family Sports Park and World Wide technology Soccer Park.  This event draws teams from 13-15 different states annually!

How do you decide who gets into your event?

We use a number of resources for determining who makes it into each year’s event. We start with looking at where teams want to be placed. This does not make a huge impact on placement, but we can at least have a starting point. We use all of the data on your application and the NOTES section is huge for helping us know more about your team. ECNL teams and USDA clubs are in. NPL teams are in. Midwest Regional League Premier teams are almost certain to get in each year along with many MRL First Division teams. We use results in these leagues, plus your local league, State Cup Results, Tournament Results, National Soccer Ranking, GOTSOCCER scores, past Fall Classic results, Regional Experts from other clubs…You name it we use it. Make sure you fill out your application and notes as complete as possible.

How do you bracket Teams?

We use a number of resources for team placement in each bracket or division. We generally have Premier and Gold in every age group and Silver for those divisions with more than 32 teams accepted in them. Diversity and competition are #1 priority’s. With the diversity of this event, you should not play a team from your state unless it is Missouri. All of the criteria listed under the first question are also used to help determine brackets. Recent league play, strength of league, ECNL, NPL & Midwest Regional League Standings and results, performance in State Cup, USYSA Regional’s and USYSA Nationals, US Club Regional’s and National’s and other top-level tournaments, diversity with geography, and other criteria go in to our bracketing decisions.
