Hagerstown Area Youth Soccer League (HAYSL) is pleased to invite you and your team to participate in The 2017 Antietam Cup. This tournament is an AYSO sanctioned event, and only registered AYSO players can participate. No select or allstar teams will be allowed. In order to ensure a quality tournament experience is had by all who participate, we will be limiting the number of teams in each division. It is for this reason that I encourage you to act on this opportunity without delay.

Any team that withdraws from The Antietam Cup after letters of acceptance have been mailed will forfeit their entry fee. Team rosters must be presented at registration where review of required forms and information will take place. A team's failure to complete the registration process as prescribed will be disqualified from participation in the tournament and forfeits their participation fee.
