The Directors Cup tournament is sponsored by the Idaho Youth Soccer Association (IYSA). The tournament is held annually the weekend before Memorial Day in May in Boise at the Simplot Sports Complex. The tournament is open to teams that are not competing in State Cup. The U18 State Cup games are sometimes held in conjunction with Director's Cup due to high school graduations. Referees who wish to work the U18 State Cup games must register for Director's Cup.
Directors Cup has traditionally been a tournament where referees are trained and have the opportunity to stretch themselves in a lower stress environment. The Idaho Youth Soccer Association has designated the Directors Cup as a No Tolerance tournament. That means that absolutely no referee abuse of any kind will be tolerated from coaches, team officials or parents. Individuals who feel compelled to yell at referees will be asked to leave the game. Referees who may not have done competitive club matches in the past are particularly welcome at this tournament. The tournament is a good introduction to the more competitive youth game. All referees should find the experience worth while.
Current USSF certified referees from outside of Idaho are also very welcome at the Directors Cup.
All referees should also note the requirement for an ArbiterPay account. Directors Cup referees are paid exclusively through ArbiterPay. Instructions for setting up an ArbiterPay account can be found on this support page of https://arbitersports.force.com/officials/s/article/How-Do-I-Register-For-An-ArbiterPay-Account.
