Recently, TSSA has been receiving numerous phone calls and emails stating that some tournaments are requiring that the Medical Release Form for the players be notarized.

On the TSSA Website under Administration-Forms is the Medical Release Form.  At the bottom of the form is the statement “does not required to be notarized”  This form has been updated to conform with the guidelines that were issued by our governing organization, United States Youth Soccer.  This form does not require to be notarized.

SATURDAY AND SUNDAY COULD NOT HAVE BEEN A BETTER WEEKEND FOR SOCCER IN JACKSON. After a fog bank lifted Saturday morning, it was beautiful sunshine the rest of the weekend. By the end of the day Saturday, the tournament had only gotten 25 minutes behind and on Sunday, the last match finished 5 minutes past the projected end of the tournament. It was fitting that the last two matches produced some of the best soccer of the weekend. One match saw the best goal of the tournament a double header and the final match went to a second round of shootout kicks to determine a championship.
I hope that everyone enjoyed their weekend in Jackson for the "Shoout In The West". We sure enjoyed having everyone for the tournament and look forward to having you come back again next year. Thanks to all coaches, parents, players, refs, and a lot of volunteers that helped make the "Shootout In The West" a soccer festival for West Tennessee.
We have had rain, but as everyone knows from the past, we don't let a little rain stop "THE SHOOTOUT IN THE WEST.".....Matter of fact, we haven't even let even a lot of rain (7 inches in 2004) stop the tournament.
As of Friday, the fields at North Park and Kate Campbell had held up well to the 3 to 4 inches of rain that we have had. Matterfact, considering the rain, they look GREAT !!! At 5 A.M. Saturday, we started putting out sand only in the areas that had not drained.
The weather sure cooperated on Saturday and Sunday and I could not believe that I even heard a comment that it was TOO hot. That sun sure looked great to me. ANYTHING BUT RAIN. Last year I said that and it was COLD, this year's weather was GREAT !!!!
I do hopt that everyone had a positive experience at the "Shootout In The West 2006". After getting home, if you have any suggestions or ideas as to how we can improve the tournament in the future, please e-mail us. It is our goal to continue to improve the tournament and to make it the best possible experience.
Please also let me thank our tournament director Kelly who did an absolutley fantastic job.
Thanks again for being a part of the "SHOOTOUT IN THE WEST 2006."

President of JAWS

The Shootout In The West 2005 had a record number of teams entering. Thanks to everyone ~ players, coaches, parents and volunteers for making the 2005 tournament even better than last year.

SHOOTOUT IN THE WEST 2004..... We Wouldn't Let Rain Stop The Tournament !!!
