Uniform requirements are simple...all players must have the same color shirt. Numbers and team name/logos are optional. Goalkeeper must be in a different color than the field players. Shinguards are required, and it is recommended that all players socks match as well.
How do I determine the age group?
You must register your team based on the age group of the oldest player on the roster. Proof of age is required at check-in. Player cards, driver’s license, birth certificates and passports are acceptable documents for age verification.
Glory on the Grass 5V5 will have age groups by birth year in the following years:
Male Age 20 and over
Male Age 30 and over
Female Age 20 and over
Female Age 30 and over
You will register for an age group based on the birth year of your oldest player. Girls can play on boys teams in a boys division. Boys cannot play on a girls team...they will be placed in a boys division.
We reserve the right to combine age groups to make a division.
We started Glory on the Grass Tournaments after looking for tournaments that featured a 5V5 format in the area and found none.
5V5 is BIG in England, and we found options in the eastern side of the state and up and down the east coast, but they were too far to attend.
We have experience running soccer tournaments and leagues, and felt that, in light of the US Youth Soccer changes, the area needed some 5V5 tournaments!
