Shootout in the West
Dear Coaches, Managers, and Players........
Hope all of you are ready for a great spring soccer season. We are already putting in our requests for great weather again for 2011….and looking forward to seeing you at our tournament. Lots of positive things have been happening here in Jackson getting ready for the 2011 tournament. I hope all of you and your teams are again planning on playing in the Shootout In The West ….. because we promise again to meet and exceed all of your expectations regarding a soccer tournament.
2011 WILL BE OUR BEST TOURNAMENT YET !!!!!!!
The SHOOTOUT IN THE WEST will be held April 16-17, 2011 in Jackson, Tennessee. We have tried to keep our tournament fees reasonable, U-9 and U-10 will be $350, U-11 and U-12 will be $375 and U-13 and up will be $450. Our registration and game scheduling will be handled by GOTSOCCER. We are limiting the number of teams so enter early to make sure that you get a spot. Registration cutoff is Friday March 25.
Applicants must be duly registered members of their State association. Players must be registered to the team making the application. Each team will be allowed three guest players. Only players with valid player passes are allowed to participate. U-9 players cannot be underage as this is a requirement with the Tennessee State Soccer Association.
The tournament format calls for a guaranteed three games for each team. Semi-finals and Finals may be based on tournament entry. 1st and 2nd place will be awarded in each age group. In some brackets, a 3rd place medal will be given based on bracket size.
The Jackson Area Wide Soccer's "Shootout In The West" has always tried to listen to ideas and suggestions and again in 2011 we will try to put your feedback from the 2010 tournament into action.
1. We will have a Presentation platform for awarding trophies and medals.

We feel our tournament is a great value with low entry fees and reasonable hotel rates. We look forward to seeing you at the 2011 "Shootout In The West"
