Hosting a Tournament
Any Governing Organization (District Association, League or Club) may make application to host a tournament. Applications must meet the conditions of approval and follow SOSA Tournament Policy. Failure to meet the conditions of approval will result in the Tournament Application being denied.
Please note that Ontario Soccer passed RFD 2002-028 at its November 2002 Board of Directors meeting which alters the previous tournament report requirements for all Districts. Please note that all tournament hosts were previously required to submit a discipline summary form to the District within 48 hours of the completion of the tournament. The Ontario Soccer policies and procedures have been changed to indicate that a Tournament host must forward to SOSA and Ontario Soccer within 2 days of the completion of the tournament copies of all misconduct reports, including dismissals and special incident reports, and the "list of cautions report". Within seven days of the completion of the tournament, a summary of the discipline rendered to each person (Ontario Soccer Tournament Discipline Summary Report) must be submitted to SOSA and Ontario Soccer.
Attending a Tournament
Any team wishing to participate in a tournament outside the jurisdiction of SOSA must submit an Application To Travel Form (ATF) signed by their club together with proof that the tournament has been sanctioned by the parent organization of the Club hosting the tournament and the appropriate fee.
As these applications require District and sometimes Ontario Coccer and Canada Soccer approval please pay particular attention to the deadlines for submission of the ATFs which are printed on the reverse side of the forms. Please note that travel outside Canada and the United States requires 60 days.
Please also refer to the Ontario Soccer tournament classifications in order to make sure that your team is eligible to attend the tournament you are applying for permission to attend.
A team is covered by insurance under the Ontario Soccer insurance policy for travel within Canada only. You may wish to purchase additional insurance for travel to provinces a great distance from Ontario, such as British Columbia and the Maritimes.
