2013 Blast Off Tournament
Federal Way Football Club (FWFC) would like to invite teams to this year's Blast Off Soccer Tournament. Several Federal Way venues will be used with Celebration Park being the tournament headquarters. Provided we have adequate competition, all skill level of teams will be accepted this year.
US Club Soccer Teams: You are allowed to enter the Blast Off Tournament but we require proof that all of your players are the correct age and are covered by insurance.
The U10's and PDL Junior teams can choose to play 6 a-side or 9 a-side in a Jamboree format per WYS rules (no scores, standings or finals) with a maximum roster size of 10 for 6 a-side and 14 for 9 a-side. These teams will be guaranteed 4 games in lieu of finals and every player will receive a medal.
The U11ís will play 9 a side with a maximum roster size of 14. U12 and above will play standard 11 a side. We have field space for 24 U11 teams and 60 U12-U19 teams per weekend. Teams will be in brackets of four (or as close as possible) with other teams of similar skill level. There will be no semi finals between brackets. The top two teams in each bracket will play each other in a final game on Sunday. Coaches trophies and player medals will be awarded to the First and Second place team in each bracket. Games will begin mid-day Friday.
The t-shirt vendor will not be puting team rosters on the back of the t-shirts, only the team or player's name.
All teams will register on-line. Upon completion of application, you will have the option to pay on-line by credit card or print your application and mail it along with a check or money order made payable to FWFC to the address shown below. Upon acceptance, you will be notified electronically. Schedules will be mailed approximately 10 days prior to the tournament. An Association signed roster is required at check-in. For any questions, please contact the Tournament Directors, Sharon & Perry Woodford at SharonUpLate@jps.net or 253-261-8274.

FWFC Blast Off Volunteers
The FWFC Blast Off Tournament is the Club's major fund raiser. Each FWFC team is required to participate as volunteers for this tournament, whether the team plays in the tournament or not. A team may pay the club $1000.00 instead of providing volunteers. This fee is due upon registration of the team. Any team that does not fulfill the total hours needed for the task will be billed at a prorated rate for the unsupported hours.
