Welcome to the 2021 Tournament,

Gates Youth Soccer, located just west of Rochester, NY, presents the Gates Soccer Tournament and Festival, hosted by the Gates Metros. In 2020 this tournament hosted over 120 teams. We hope you will join us for this fun and competitive travel soccer event taking place July 16-18, 2021.

This soccer event is one of the best known youth soccer tournaments in the area for girls and boys travel soccer teams.  This NYSWYSA sanctioned tournament offers a wide range of competition, for community based travel teams, to higher level competitive teams. We pride ourselves in our experience and knowledge in running a fun, competitive, professional and exciting tournament. This event is a favorite destination for teams from Canada and Western New York.

All entering teams must provide proof of insurance and a valid player and staff roster from their respective organization. There will be no exceptions. The tournament director may reject applications for teams who cannot provide appropriate credentials.

Event Details and Team Entry Validation requirements for participation follow.

We are optimistic this event will be a celebration of Return to Play, however we do urge all of you to take precautions and follow the recommended behaviors, and requests of the facility staff and event hosts, in order to keep all who are in attendance safe and comfortable for the duration of the event.  Guidelines we adhere to would include,

  • Stay home when you or someone in your household is sick
  • Wear facial covering
  • Maintain the recommended social distance (six feet apart)
  • Limit spectators to TWO per player
  • No tents or pop-up type shelters permitted (exception for personal umbrella type sun shield)
  • Frequent hand washing or use of hand sanitizing solution
  • Players not in play (or on a bench) should wear face covering if they cannot maintain social distance (six feet apart)
  • Coaches and team staff should wear a mask
  • No handshakes or team lines should occur before or after a match
  • Please leave the fields and venue immediately following a match
  • Avoid crowded areas and enclosed spaces
  • Stop the Spread of Germs (CDC)

Concerns for the pandemic shall be addressed with the cooperation of everyone who chooses to be a part of this event. Gates Youth Soccer heeds the precautions and recommendations of the CDC and our leading entities NYSWYSA  and US Youth Soccer.  Each of us, each of you, are responsible to make this a safe Celebration of Soccer. Cooperate, abide by the guidelines, keep your distance, do your part to reduce the spread of coronavirus, and let the teams play. Join us, in Rochester, and Return To Play!

We protect ourselves by protecting each other

If you see someone not following our safety protocols, first encourage them to do so. While we’re getting used to our “next normal,” it may be easy to forget that you didn’t put on your face covering. Please help us help your peers. If you aren’t satisfied with their response, report it to the venue management.

We realize you may have mixed emotions about returning to play. We are doing everything we can to make our event safe, and we will continue to adjust our safety protocols as needed. Part of keeping everyone safe includes individual actions.
