San Carlos AYSO

Knickerbocker-Masters Tournaments

In the winter of 1969 only about one hundred AYSO players could be found scattered across Northern California .  AYSO came to San Carlos in 1974, with just a few teams, under Emmett MacCorkle.  In 1976, the San Carlos Region was chartered under the national organization by Dick Knickerbocker and was recognized to operate within the city boundaries of the City of San Carlos .  In 1991, for the first time, San Carlos had over 1,000 children in the program, and currently we have grown to approximately 1,500 kids!  We are the beneficiaries of the effort, skill, know-how, good will and wonderful positive attitudes of many people over the years.

The Knickerbocker-Masters Cup Tournament is intended to celebrate those individuals.  This annual tournament was named after Dick Knickerbocker who served as commissioner for seven years and Bob Masters who was on AYSO’s board for 8 years and was Regional Commissioner from 1986 to 1988.

Starting in 2008, a new Knickerbocker-Masters Cup Tournament format was created for the U10 division.  Each team now plays 4 shorter games in a round-robin group stage format with points awarded to each team rather than just a simple victory or defeat.  The end result is a full day of fun for all U10 players and their families.  The U10 Knickerbocker-Masters Cup Tournament is held at Burton Park in October 14th - 15th, 2017  with Girls playing on Saturday and Boys playing on Sunday.

The U12/U14 Knickerbocker-Masters Cup Tournament is held on September 30th and October 1st, 2017 with Girls playing on Saturday and Boys playing on Sunday.  Location to be determined.

It is worth noting that this year the rules about team who have an insufficient number of players are being updated so that a sufficient number of available players can be placed on a team. So, if a team can't participate but there are players on the team who want to, they will be able to play for an assigned team.

First game will be in the morning on Friday November 24th at a school gym in Redwood City, San Carlos or Belmont depending on age group.

Region 107 in San Carlos is running the 7U/8U portion of the tournament at Central Middle School and do need volunteers to run the scoreboard, ref and the 8U tournament.
