GOLD RUSH COUNTDOWN IS ON, Dec. 10-11 SCHEDULES ARE POSTED!!!

Region 678 is proud to host the Santa Clarita Gold Rush December 10-11, 2016 at beautiful Santa Clarita Central Park!

Here are some important updates: Please check this page regularly for updates and read down the page as well.

GAME AND REFEREE SCHEDULE POSTED: The tournament is full and  game/ref schedule and pools are posted. Teams have been flighted according to ratings and a review of team records. There will be no changes (other than a double booking of a team, of course). As much as we would like to accommodate teams and longer travel distance, we must schedule to create the most competitive flights for the best experience for all and that is what dictates games times.

Regarding the referee schedule portion. Unless your game and ref assignment are scheduled at the same time, there will be no adjustments. If you have a partial crew, please know that we have recorded that and plan to have standbys fill out your crew. Please make sure your referee crews come in proper attires (uniform, badge, proper shorts and socks).

Please note NIGHT GAMES! The City of Santa Clarita closed two fields affecting the schedule dramatically — which will be a good thing for many of you. We will have Saturday night games, with the final games of the night starting at 7:15 pm on Saturday. Please make note of this and be prepared to possibly referee a night game if you are playing later in the day.

Here is the tournament format
