West Pines Kickoff Boys Weekend

Game On!

2021 boys and Girls Kickoff Classic logo

October 6 to October 8, 2023

West Pines United FC is pleased to invite your club and teams to participate in the West Pines Kickoff Classic Boys Weekend. The West Pines Kickoff Classic Tournament has become one of the most competitive tournaments by bringing together a great variety of teams locally, around the state, and beyond. The tournament is for select teams of all ability levels. We have had State Champion & USYS Regional & National level teams and we have had mid-level select teams along with beginner teams to participate.  The Boys Weekend has been known to have very high level competition over the years.

Most age groups have 3 playing flights (Gold, Silver, and Bronze). The Tournament will be played on the weekend of October 6 to October 8, 2023, in Broward County.

The West Pines Kickoff Classic is sanctioned by Florida Youth Soccer Association (FYSA) and is open to all US Soccer members (US Club Soccer, AYSO, USSSA).


Regardless of weather conditions, players and coaches must be on the field at the scheduled time, ready to play.

In case of inclement weather or field conditions, games may:

  • Reschedule or Relocate match (Time and location determined by Tournament Director).
  • Shortened match – The Tournament Director may reduce the length of halves due to weather conditions before the restart of a match once delayed due to weather; all such matches will be considered official.
  • Go to “Penalty Kicks” (Time and location determined by Tournament Director)
  • Be Cancelled (The tournament committee has the right to cancel any match. Any game that is not started and is canceled [as opposed to postponed] due to weather or other external conditions, will be recorded as a 0-0 tie.  Canceled games will not be rescheduled.).

*** If in the event the Tournament Director rules that during the preliminary round “Taking of Kicks from the Penalty Mark.” will be done due to inclement weather or field conditions, the following rule will apply:

  • Each team will take a maximum of five (5) penalty kicks.
  • At the end of five (5) kicks the game will be scored as a 1-0 win for the team that has scored more penalty kicks, or a 0-0 tie if both teams are tied in penalty kicks at the end of five (5) kicks.
  • In the overall standings, 3 points will be given for the win, 1 point for a tie and 0 points for a loss.
  • The 1-0 win in penalty kicks will be counted for or against to determine the tiebreaker for advancement.
  • If regular games have been played in the bracket and the Tournament Director has determined that other games go to penalty kicks due to inclement weather or field conditions, the regular games score will revert back to a 1-0 win or a 0-0 tie.

Only referees or duty manager can suspend a match already started due to weather conditions. Duration of any suspension will be determined by the Tournament Director. In case of extreme weather (heat/humidity), a break will be given at the midpoint of each half of regulation time and at the end of each overtime period (if played) for player hydration. This break will be given at a normal stoppage of play and it is mandatory for any FYSA sanctioned match during which the air temperature is or is expected to reach eighty-five (85) degrees. (FYSA Bylaw 402.4)

To better serve players, teams, and families participating in the West Pines Kickoff Classic the tournament has partnered with HBC Event Services and the Greater Ft. Lauderdale Convention & Visitors Bureau to coordinate hotels for teams.

Hotel Policy information will be provided soon.

With Showcase Divisions in the U15, U16, U17, and U18/19 boys’ and girls’ divisions the West Pines Kickoff Classic promises to be a great weekend of high level, competitive soccer. We request that Girls College Coaches register online (via GotSoccer) for attendance at the West Pines Kickoff Classic so that we can better serve you while in attendance at the tournament.
