CAMP REGISTRATION

Individual registration must be completed 2 WEEKS prior to camp! This includes the online registration as well as all other medical documents that are required to participate. 


You must register your team to secure your spot.  For planning purposes, it's ideal that you register as soon as you can.  

Once you've registered your team, an individual registration/roster link will be provided.  Please get this link to your players immediately and encourage them to register themselves ASAP.

A deposit is required upon team registration but will be refunded upon the completion of you 18th players individual registration.  



The Experience:

The Nike Cup Team Tournament was developed to give players the greatest opportunity possible to showcase their skills in a camp setting.  It is difficult for college coaches to assess a player's talent and ability while attending massive tournaments.  If they are lucky, they watch your team play in one shortened game, and they may see an athlete touch the ball only a few times, which gives them little information on a player's abilities.  The Nike Cup Team Tournament is a great way for athletes to gain exposure and learn from many of the top college coaches across the nation.  


Divisions:

Nike Cup is open to any and all teams interested within the division range specified below.  The Tournament will be divided into three divisions. A varsity level house team is available for those registering individually.  

Orange Division 2018/2019/2020 Varsity
Blue Division 2019/2020/2021 JV
Middle School Division 2021/2022/2023 Middle School/Youth

 

Teams Attend with their Coaches:

Each participating team's head coach will be hired as an employee of the Nike Cup.  In return for working the duration of the camp, head coaches will receive a $500 payment.  The head coach and assistant coach will receive room and board on campus.  If a team's coach cannot attend, the college player assigned to the team can manage and coach the team alongside college coaches.  This is a great opportunity to learn from top college coaches.  


Skill Development:

Learn even more during the tournament with special skill sessions, in which college coaches focus on specific skills such as defense, goaltending, dodging, shooting, and more.

Free Nike Uniforms:

Nike will provide every team with a set of uniforms.  Several color combinations are available, and jerseys are numbered and customized with the team name and logo. 


Facilities & Locations:

Syracuse University is one of the top athletic schools in the Northeast.  It has state-of-the-art athletic facilities with multiple grass and turf fields - many of them with lights.  Players might even get a chance to play in Syracuse's Carrier Dome! Syracuse is centrally located for teams traveling from the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast regions.  It is accessible from the south via Interstate 81 and from the east and west via the New York State Thruway (Interstate 90).  

Safety & Training Staff:

We take safety and security very seriously.  Our tournament employs a director of security who oversees the players when they are off of the field (in dorms, at the dining hall, during free time, etc.).  Certified trainers and a training room are also available.  

Nike Cup Team Tournament Store:

Our store offers a limited selection of Nike and STX products.  Multiple vendors will also be on hand.
