This special one day event will provide coaches, players and families with a soccer experience that will long be remembered.  The Halloween theme will be carried throughout all aspects of the tournament and Freehold Soccer League strongly encourages all that are participating to get into the "spirit of the event.”  The tournament is open to U-8 through U-12 travel teams and all games will be played at various sites within Freehold. 

The deadline for all applications is October 1, 2017, however, Freehold Soccer League (FSL) reserves the right to close any division as it becomes full.  This is an invitational tournament and we will accept teams based on divisional needs.  Teams will be notified of their acceptance via email by October 1, 2017. 

THIS TOURNAMENT WILL BE RUN THROUGH GOTSOCCER HOWEVER NO SCORES OR STANDINGS WILL BE KEPT AND NO GOTSOCCER POINTS WILL BE AWARDED.

On-line registration, check-in and electronic payment is used for the tournament.  Credit card and e-check are the only accepted methods of payment.  No payments will be accepted at the tournament.  If your team is not accepted for any reason, you will receive a full refund.  If you are accepted and decide to drop out, you will forfeit your application fee.

AGAIN, THERE ARE NO SCORES OR STANDINGS KEPT AT THIS TOURNAMENT so please keep that in mind to help make this event a wonderful experience for the players and their families.
