The Commonwealth Cup was organized to enhance the accomplishments recreational players achieve by participating is a state championship tournament in the late 1970s. The development of all players within Kentucky Youth Soccer is advanced when the player meets personal challenges. The Commonwealth Cup is designed to encourage and honor the recreational player by allowing the player to compete for both team and personal goals. This tournament is structured so that, regardless of ability, all players can realistically strive for the goal of becoming a state champion.
The Commonwealth Cup is a unique tournament in that it is only open to recreational players. The tournament follows a set of guidelines that are administered at the state level.
1. Every recreational player shall have an equal opportunity to participate in every game.
2. The formation of recreational teams follows a controlled registration policy where every player is accepted and assigned to a roster regardless of ability.
3. A philosophy of player participation in a low-stress, fun filled environment is promoted.
