Dear Past Falmouth Fall Classic Participants and Applicants,
We are excited to announce this year’s FFC is being held October 12-14, 2013. Last year’s experience with over 150 teams, wonderful competition at all levels and spectacular weather made for a memorable weekend. Several teams that did not participate last year have already begun to contact us to register for the 2013 FFC. Because of the number of teams that have verbally committed to participate this year, it is very important that you apply early.
Applications will be available online beginning July 9th until the tournament is full. After this, you may still apply and you will be placed on the waiting list. It is ESPECIALLY IMPORTANT to apply early due to limited acceptance based on field availability for the 2013 FFC.
APPLY NOW at: www.gotsport.com/forms/app/?EventID=31678
For U12, U13 and U14 please note on the application TOWN, COACH’S NAME AND DIVISION 1 (D1) OR DIVISION 2 (D2) next to your team’s name. i.e. U12, FYSA, Falmouth, Jones, D1.
Out-of-state teams must enter their team roster, including player’s town next to each player, at the time of application. At least one slot in the U12 and older age categories are reserved for out-of-state teams.
After your application is submitted, the team will receive an email notification from Got Soccer of ‘ACCEPTANCE OF APPLICATION’. This is NOT ACCEPTANCE TO THE TOURNAMENT. You will be notified in a separate email in late August if and when your team is accepted (see below).
Please allow Got Sport / Got Soccer emails to pass through your computer’s spam filter. All communications will be via this site. THIS IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT – if your spam filter stops these emails you may not receive notifications regarding the Falmouth Fall Classic.
ONLY ‘CLASSIC’ teams will be accepted! No ‘Premier’ teams will be allowed to participate.
Teams will generally be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. However, we reserve the right to make exceptions, at our discretion, to insure competitive brackets. We will try our best to accept whole clubs; however, we cannot make any guarantees.
You will be notified of acceptance on or after August 24, 2013.
TOURNAMENT FEES AND PAYMENT:
Upon ‘NOTIFICATION OF ACCEPTANCE’ teams must send in their payment (money order or check) made out to FYSA within ONE WEEK to:
FFC- Sean Mahoney
PO Box 66844
Falmouth ME 04105
Fees for FFC 2013 per team are as follows:
U9-U10: $ 300
U11-U12: $ 375
U13-U14: $ 400
If your team does not pay within one week of being accepted into the FFC or if you withdraw after notification of acceptance, your entire fee will be forfeited – no exceptions.
If the tournament is cancelled prior to October 10th, 2013 due to inclement weather predictions or other reason, each team will be refunded all but $50 of the tournament fee.
Once the tournament begins NO refund will be given in the event of cancellation or shortening of matches due to inclement weather.
Once accepted, please send an email with any special requests or head coaching conflicts with multiple teams to our scheduler, Louise Hester at email@example.com. We will try our best to create the schedule to avoid coaching conflicts. The schedule will be released 10-14 days before the tournament. Each team is guaranteed 3 games, and some teams in the competitive U12-U14 age brackets may also get a fourth playoff game.
Thank you very much and we look forward to hosting the 19th FFC! Check our website regularly (http://www.falmouthsoccer.com/fallclassic/) for updates and special announcements regarding this year’s Falmouth Fall Classic.
Yours in Soccer,
Director of FFC 2013
