Cal North State Cup will determine the teams that will move on to Far West Regional Championships and represent their club & Northern California. If the team wins in the Regional Championship games, they may advance to the National Championship games. The entire progression, from District Cup, through State Cup, and Regionals, is a very challenging process, requiring 100% effort and participation from all team members. For Regional & National games, teams will travel outside of the state to play.
Needless to say, going to Hawaii, and staying in Hawaii will require a good deal of cash, so the team would need to be prepared to tackle financial fundraising immediately. The question as to this aspect should be considered as a topic, prior to playing in State Cup. The cause for this would be so that that the team member families could determine in advance, if they were financially capable of participating in the Far West Regionals, if the team wins. If a large portion of the indicates that they could not financially handle going to the Regionals, this will impact the viability of the team being able to go to the Regionals.
