What is your payment policy?
Payment is required at the time of application.
May we arrange our own hotels?
No, NCFC partnered with Anthony Travel, allowing teams to receive the best available hotel benefits and ensures all teams receive the protections NCFC and Anthony Travel have established with the hotels. Anthony Travel pre-secures room blocks at the closest available hotels to the fields, and negotiates the lowest rates and best amentities for teams. Anthony Travel always selects properties with the team's best interest in mind. You can view more information on NCFC Youth's Stay to Play agreement Here.

Buses are able to drop players using the Bus Dropoff Area located at P5, but they will not be able to remain on site furing the day. Ample parking is available at Triangle Town Center a few minutes away. RVs are not permitted to be stationed on site.

I am coaching more than one team during the tournament…Can you handle scheduling conflicts?
This will be difficult due to distance of field locations and potential number of games in one day. We try, but cannot guarantee, we will resolve all conflicts.
Do we need a notification to travel form?
Yes. Any USYS team from a state other than North Carolina will need to upload their notification to travel during the online team check-in. US Club teams do not have to provide this form.
Can we mix USYS cards or medicals with US Club cards and medicals?
No. You must register as a USYS team or US Club team. This is also true for guest players. They must match your affiliation completely.
My team is not playing in the tournament but I would like to be a guest player with another team.
We will have online registration for guest players along with details on how to register up on the website. All guest players will go through the website and teams will be able to locate guest players on the website. Check with your club or state registrar on how to how carding a guest player.
