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.

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
LSA has built in a rainout weekend for either the Bob Abbott Cup or the Louisiana Open Cup. Should either tournament be rained out, it shall be played in its entirety on the rainout weekend. If both the Bob Abbott Cup and the Louisiana Open Cup are rained out in their entirety, the Bob Abbott Cup will be played on the rainout weekend and all teams that entered the Louisiana Open Cup shall 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.
