Ken Claassen Memorial Tournament Update
First, let me start by saying thank you for your patience today. Hindsight is always 20/20 and the decision to cancel today’s games was a difficult one that was based on weather reports, tournament rules, and field status. Clearly the weather held off longer than the National Weather Service anticipated, but that couldn’t be predicted last night when the decision was made.
Today, numerous phone calls and emails were made to find available dates, times and fields to reschedule the remainder of the games of the Ken Claassen Memorial Tournament. Unfortunately, it was simply not possible. No one who loves the game of soccer wanted to see this exciting season end in penalty kicks or coin flips. Me included. To that end, and after much conversation with our Area 10/Q Director, the decision has been made that the tournament will be finalized as of the completed pool play games on Saturday. We have followed the tournament rules as laid out on our web site to determine the top four teams in each division.
The standings for each division are outlined below. While this isn’t the exciting finale we anticipated, we hope that you can support and encourage the teams who will be representing our Region at the Area Tournament. We are fortunate to have the U10 Girls and U12 Boys and Girls playing at the Soto Sports Complex on December 10-11 and we encourage you to come out and cheer on all the Region 83 teams.
I personally want to thank all of our volunteers, players and families for a fun, successful season of soccer. Our organization couldn’t function without volunteers, so if you are interested in helping out in any capacity, please contact me directly.

2016 Ken Claassen Memorial Tournament
Our program’s goal is for kids to play soccer, so AYSO mandates that every player on every team must play at least 1/2 of every game. In Region 83 we additionally mandate that no player should play more than 3/4 of a single game until every player has played 3/4 of that game. It’s no fun to spend the game on the side line…and that’s no way to learn soccer!
