Several IMPORTANT Announcements!
September 23, 2017
All,
First of all, due to the unseasonably warm forecast, we are going to be taking a 1-minute water break NEAR THE MIDDLE of each half (at a STOPPAGE -- i.e. a throw-in, goal kick, kick off OR free kick). The clock will continue running during this time. PLEASE GET BACK ON THE FIELD, QUICKLY!

If you are missing paperwork (YOU should know who you are -- DUSC teams MUST submit the Liability Release Form!), please check-in at the tent.

ALL teams can come by the tent and pick up their tournament Bag Tags!

Be on the lookout for the photographers today! They have a really cool team picture format teams really love!!!

The truly custom T-Shirts and Apparel are available near the Tournament Tent and near the concession stand.

ALL U-08 to U-10 COACHES, make sure you conduct a BRIEF RULES MEETING with the REFEREE and OPPOSING COACH!!!

More soon....
Ken;

NOTE on Scores
September 23, 2017
All,
Since the MAX. Goal Differential is FOUR, ALL SCORES are entered with a maximum of a FOUR goal difference. For example, a 10-2 score is recorded as 6-2. A 9-6 score is recorded as 9-6 (since the differential is less than FOUR, the actual score is used. NET: Non-winning score is ALWAYS recorded as the actual score. The Winning score is recorded as the actual score OR four more than the non-winning score, whichever is LOWER. Thanks.

Schedule Update
September 18, 2017
All,
I have made numerous changes the schedule eliminating MOST of the coach conflicts and other challenges. I know of ONE coach conflict right now (Barcelona). I am still working to move some game times for those teams traveling the furthest.

Once the schedule goes "Final" (NO LATER THAN NOON TOMORROW), there will only be "cosmetic" changes (i.e. moving a field so that a coach can be closer to his/her next game, changes the home team/visiting team so that most teams can wear each jersey for only one game each day.

More soon.....The referee schedule was published and progressing is being made on that front, as well.

Please turn your focus toward getting the check-in documents completed and e-mailed to DUCC.documentation@gmail.com. Thanks....
Ken

TENTATIVE Schedule Published
September 16, 2017
All,
I have finally been able to publish the TENTATIVE Schedule! It is available for review. DO NOT consider this to be the absolute FINAL schedule. I still have some adjustments to make for coaching conflicts on SUNDAY (I don't believe I have any on Saturday, BUT I could have missed a couple).

ALSO NOTE: One of the nice features of a five team tournament bracket is that ALL TEAMS automatically play FOUR GAMES. One of the really, really bad features of a five team tournament bracket is ONE of those five teams has a LONG layoff between games. Only FOUR can play at a time meaning that at least three time slots must be used to get each of the five teams each day. Since my past surveys have indicated that coaches want at least two and preferably three time slots between games, there is a big gap for one team each team.

Please review the brackets and your time slots. IF I have promised you something and not honored that commitment, let me know and I will try to fix it. I WILL move games in the cases of coach conflicts on Sunday. It was going to take some time to do that and I am getting ready to referee a college game, shortly. I will make my known adjustments -- and will try to make other requested adjustments if I can.

Please remember that all teams would like to have a 10:00AM and a 2:00PM game each day. Unfortunately, tournaments would cost three or four times what they do if tournaments did that. Coaches conflicts and a few pre-registration requests drive 90% of the schedule. With the high number of multiple-team coaches, there is very little flexibility left. If you see a flat out mistake OR if your team is willing to play with only a one game break, I can quite possible move games around and attempt to accommodate those requests.

Also, with the number of five team brackets -- many other tournaments choose to clump multiple five team brackets into a single division of 10 teams making for some very lopsided scores -- there are a far larger number of games on Sunday than is customary. While this costs us much more money in referee fees and keeps teams in town longer to complete the round robin format, surveys have indicated that teams prefer to get to play more games against evenly balanced opponents.

Thanks, again, for your patience. The referee schedule is in process now!

More Information On Tournament Division Formats
September 16, 2017
All,
We have a variety of different divisional formats for the DUCC. They include the following:
1. Four Team Divisions: Each team plays THREE round robin games. The top two teams play in the Championship Game.
2. Five Team Divisions: Each team plays FOUR round robin games. Since OSYSA caps teams at two games per day (and that is reasonable), the winner/finalist are determined by tie-breakers rather than a Championship Game (3 points for a win/1 for a tie, head-to-head (limited applicability), goal differential (max of 4 per game), goals allowed, KFTM, etc.).
3. Six Team Divisions: Two Pools with three teams in each pool. Teams play THREE "Pool" games including one crossover with the other pool. The top two teams advance to a Championship game.
4. Eight Team Divisions: Two Pools with four teams in each pool. Teams play the other THREE teams in their pool. The winners of each pool then play in a Championship Game.

NET: All teams play three games. Teams in divisions with an even-number of teams play three pool games and the top two advance and play a fourth game. In five team pools, ALL teams play four games.

Much more soon....
Ken
