Referees - please contact Chris at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are available to referee for our tournament.
This year marks the 26th anniversary of the American Family Insurance Ostrich Festival Tournament presented by RSL-AZ. The tournament is held each March to coincide with the city of Chandler's Ostrich Festival which draws over 250,000 visitors. While most of the country is still cold, wet and sometimes snowy, we enjoy beautiful warm sunny weather that is perfect for soccer. The valley also hosts 15 major league baseball teams during this time. Come early and catch a few games of baseball before a weekend of soccer.
Last year the tournament hosted 450 U7-U19 teams from all over the state of Arizona as well as New Mexico, Nevada, and California, and several other states plus Canada. We offer a 3 game minimum with many teams playing 4 games.

Academy players may play in 2 squads for the same Academy team if the team plays with a non-fixed roster and the players are registered with the club's sanctioning body. For example, Academy Team Red has 15 players and splits into Academy Team Red 1 and Academy Team Red 2, (both teams must register in the tournament). A player may play for both Red 1 & Red 2, but their play time must not exceed 80 minutes of soccer per day.
