Bob Abbott Cup

Bob - Odd

The Bob Abbott Cup is named for US Youth Soccer Hall of Fame inductee, Bob Abbott of Baton Rouge. For more than 30 years, Bob served as a coach, club officer and former LSA President, Bob embodies the spirit of commitment to the game and to our kids. The Bob Abbott Cup is for all 11U and 12U teams that competed in the LCSL during the season. As a single weekend tournament it is designed to be a fun and competitive environment. There are no State Champions crowned at the "Bob" so the emphasis can be entirely on player and team performance rather than outcomes. Coaches, players and their parents should use this tournament to measure how far these young players have come in their development over the course of the year. 

LSA has regretfully been forced to cancel the 2019 Bob Abbott Cup due to the impending poor weather scheduled to pass through the state this weekend. As we always do, LSA puts the safety of our players and their families first.  Also, because we alerted Anthony Travel of the cancellation early enough, those families who booked through them are protected by our tournament protection contract and will not be charged. Thank you for your understanding

Hotels and Accommodations
The Bob Abbott Cup, like all Louisiana Soccer State Tournaments, is a "Stay to Play" tournament. This means all teams participating in "The Bob" that are traveling from beyond a 100 mile radius of the tournament site, must book their accommodations through Anthony Travel. This was done to give our teams and soccer families the best available hotel benefits possible and to ensure all teams receive the protections LSA and Anthony Travel can negotiate with hotels.

Rainout / Make-up Weekend Refund Policy
In 2017 LSA started inserting a rainout weekend for the Bob Abbott Cup and the Open Cup into our state tournament schedule. However, in 2019 Easter is so late in the spring that we are unable to build in a Rainout date. Should either the Bob Abbott Cup or the Louisiana Open Cup be rained out in its entirety, teams will receive a refund. LSA will endeavor to cancel tournaments on or before the Thursday prior to the tournament so as to give participants and families time to cancel hotel reservations and travel plans.
