    Anyone hear anything about when schedules should be out? In years past, the schedules have been posted by now!

    The Vegas Cup is currently scrambling to fill some spots (Registration Remains Open). Many SoCal teams pulled out because Cal South moved up the Start of State Cup to mid-January, which would have caused a conflict. Because SoCal is dead for the youngers, I understand they are pressing hard for additional teams to fill the void.

    U-littles (7v7) are all impacted. The 9v9's are not from a scheduling standpoint, but there are probably a few SoCal teams that are skipping the Tournament because they will be traveling the following week for the opening State Cup games.

    Good afternoon from VEGAS CUP!

    Schedules will be posted tomorrow... Vegas Cup reached the 900 team mark this year, and it has been very tricky accommodating everyone's special requests... We always strive to make the event as special as possible, and I apologize for not being able to get the schedule out sooner.

    I assure all that the reason for the delay was not due to us scrambling for teams.

    We truly appreciate the continued support and sincerely apologize to the 200+ teams on the "Waiting List" that did not make it into the tournament.

    To the SoCal teams that are missing this year's Vegas Cup due to the State Cup conflict, I promise that we will be in continued conversations to hopefully not have this happen again.

    Thank you and have a great day!

    Sincerely,
    Vegas Cup

    So you said yesterday the schedule would be posted today. It has been over 24 hours since you told everyone today the schedules would be posted. Any chance you can let us know when today they will be posted?

    Well, at least the hotel situation has improved from years prior but thumbs down on the late posting of schedule! For people making flight arrangements, this kinda sucks and also just trying to plan things with the team....always good to get the schedule more than 2 weeks in advance, as this is a popular holiday weekend.

    We stopped doing this tournament 2 years ago. Too much of a pain to play against local teams.
    3 night hotel minimumns. (Can’t use comps or credit card points). Crappy schedules (1 game on Saturday. 2 on Sunday with 1 of them being at 6pm or later.
    And the Vegas strip isn’t made for kids. Forget about the things your kids might be exposed to. You can’t eat breakfast for less than $25 per person. That’s a lot for 2 pancakes and a piece of bacon.

    Just posted...

    Sorry, it takes awhile to get 900 teams scheduled, especially since virtually every team has special requests that we try to accommodate, since it is a holiday weekend in Vegas...

    Thank you for your patience!

    Sincerely,
    Vegas Cup

    You set the expectation so don’t play the “900 teams” excuse. Next time set the bar lower.

    I would take state Cup any day.

    I see no value in this tournament unless it's a college showcase or guaranteed playing top teams from other states.

    I've heard too many times of people complaining about drive back home on Monday night.

    Despite my issues posted above- it’s a great tournament if you have a fun team that isn’t falling apart in about 6 weeks. It’s a great bonding experience for the players and the parents (late nights gambling and drinking are a great way to form a strong bond).

    So did you buy the coach a few drinks? Or was he buying them for you?

    Drinks are “free” when you are losing your a$$ at blackjack.

    A quick report: We played at Heritage Park in Henderson ... other than chilly mornings, fields were nice (dormant grass, so they were fast) and the team's overall experience was great.
