The SG CUP

The SG CUP is our way of helping all kids enjoy and participate in league-wide competition while acquiring skills that build healthy and positive people and, in turn, a healthy and positive soccer community.

Players are placed in houses upon entering the Calgary Youth Soccer League and remain in that house through each age group - becoming respected role models for younger players.  For example, if a player is placed in the Rivellino Rockets house, they will play on that team house each year they are member of the league.

Based on the "House" system from the world of Hogwarts, teams across the whole league (all age groups) compete to become Champions of the SG CUP.  The CUP is awarded each year at the end of the Spring/early Summer season to the League House with the most points.  Points are awarded throughout the year for a wide range of tasks, skills, and competitions that reinforce our league values and development goals (eg.  help up an opposing player after a trip = 5 points).   See below for the SG CUP Points Chart.

The Houses

The CYSL Houses are named in honour of skillful soccer players throughout history.  Each House has a 'move' in honour of their house namesake reflecting our league's emphasis on skill development.  Players are encouraged to master their House move, as well as the moves from the other houses.  of the 12 Houses of the Calgary Youth Soccer League.
