The Spring JAM is an USYS/WSA non-restricted sanctioned event. The schedule will accommodate a 4 game schedule. Each team will play 4 games against 4 different opponents except for those age groups that may not have 5 teams registered in their division. In that instance, teams will play 4 games with some repeat opponents. Due to the nature and time restraints, some teams may play back to back games. There will be no overtime at the end of regulation play, scores will be recorded, but no tabulation of scores or declaration of a winner of the JAM, just soccer games. Team registrations and guest player requests must be submitted on-line through Got Soccer. Players rostered on a team must have the same US soccer affiliation. Guest players must also have the same US Soccer affiliated membership passes as the team that they are guest playing for. A player can only be rostered on one (1) team during the Jamboree.

No credit or partial credit will be given in this situation. A team may withdraw from the Jamboree and a full refund will be issued (minus a $30 administrative fee) if the team cancels prior to the registration deadline. After the registration deadline, a 70% refund will be issued if the schedule has not been posted; or if the schedule has been posted, a 60% refund will be issued if a replacement team can be secured. If a replacement team cannot be secured after the schedule is posted, no refund will be issued.
Weather – The Jamboree committee/director has the right to shorten and/or cancel matches due to unfavorable/dangerous climate conditions and/or other acts of nature and circumstances beyond the control of the Jamboree, director, or Casper Soccer Club.
