Various Invitational Tournaments are held throughout New York State for both Division B and Division C. Invitational Tournaments are optional Tournaments that Teams may choose to attend to give them more practice in Tournament Events or to gain more practical Tournament experience.
In order to participate in a New York State Invitational Tournament:
- All in-state Teams must have completed and paid the NYSSO Regional Registration Fee for each Team in order to be eligible to participate in a New York State Invitational Tournament.
- All out-of-state Teams must have completed and paid their respective State's Registration Fee in order to be eligible to participate in a New York State Invitational Tournament.
