The Glen-Ed Soccer Charitable 501.c.3 Organization and the Glen-Ed Soccer Association cordially invites you to attend the 9th annual Glen-Ed Spring Kick-Off Tournament. The dates are April 4th-5th (local teams have the option to play on April 2-3) in Edwardsville, IL. Through our federally approved 501(c)(3) charitable organization, all tournament proceeds benefit local education and sports programs.
The Spring Kick-off is held on a traditionally off or very light league weekend for most of the 1,000+ St. Louis-based club teams. We will have Gold, Silver and Bronze divisions in all age groups where team entries warrant their creation. Our tournament has enjoyed a strong following from local teams which in turn, has attracted many out-of-town teams seeking diverse competition. During the past 5 years, teams have traveled from 8 different states to play in the Spring Kick-off. We go to great lengths to ensure teams get to compete against other teams of similar ability.
Do you coach more than one team?… because all of our fields are in close proximity, accommodating coaches that have 2 teams entered is something we can do much better than most multi-site events.
The tournament is a 3-game guaranteed event and is open to boys and girls U7-U15 and high school boys only U16-U19. All USYSA, US Club and AYSO-affiliated teams are welcome. To register your team today, please click on this link GotSoccer Team Application.
The playing formats are:
AGE SIZE FEES
U7-U8 Boys & Girls 4v4 $400
U8-U10 Boys & Girls 7v7 $580
U11-U12 Boys & Girls 9v9 $680
U13-U15 Boys & Girls 11v11 $750
U16-U19 Boys only 11v11 $750
ALL payments must be received by February 22nd. Teams that have not paid by February 22nd will be dropped. Brackets are expected to be released by March 6th.
To pay by credit card, please request an invoice from our treasurer. Send email request to firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to include your team name and gender/age group in your email.

At our 2020 event, we will unveil our newest facility…
This facility is located within the City of Edwardsville’s Plummer Family Park. Click HERE to see park details. Initially, we will have 7 lighted artificial turf fields (3 full-size soccer fields that are also lined for smaller-sided games and four 7v7 fields in the outfields of the four all-turf baseball fields). Combined with our existing facilities, we are even more prepared to offer a very memorable event on the field and off.

EDWARDSVILLE HIGH SCHOOL (11v11 Field)
The Glen-Ed West Complex and the SIUE Rec Fields are both located in the Southern Illinois University (SIUE) campus and are about 1/2 mile from each other. SIUE Korte Stadium is adjacent to the Glen-Ed West Complex and the EHS field is 3 miles away from the SIUE campus fields. Our newest facility, Glen-Ed East is 4 miles further east from the EHS field and 7 miles (14 minute-drive) from our Glen-Ed West facility. We have 15 lighted fields that allow games to be played on Thursday and Friday night as well as provide us with contingency plans for Saturday night games if we encounter weather delays during the tournament.
We are a “Stay to Play” tournament and a condition of acceptance requires every “out of town” team to book their hotel rooms using our hotel service reservations partner. Glen-Ed utilizes CSTT Sports Travel to secure hotel rooms for our tournament. CSTT works closely with the hotels in our area to secure the best rates possible. Partner hotels are selected based on their ability to provide the type of services, amenities and prices needed by our out-of-town teams.
Out-of-town teams needing to book hotel rooms are required to contact Pam Visentin at CSTT within 7 days after entry to secure a room block and reservations within the block must be made by March 1st. Pam can be reached by phone at 1-866-861-TEAM (8326) or via email at email@example.com.
