TEAM GATE FEE
We have some parks that will not allow individual gate fees to be collected, and we are forced to collect a team gate fee from each team. All teams will be notified about this prior to the beginning of the event.
All teams will be split into divisions that are representative of their playing level. This is typically A/AA and AA/AAA divisions. Depending on the number of teams entered, priority will be placed on making the event the most evenly competitive tournament. All teams will play two pool games, and then split into a Sunday single elimination championship bracket. With enough teams entered, division brackets can be separated further into gold, silver, and bronze Sunday brackets.
TEAMS CHOOSE DIVISION (at registration)
Each team will select their team's classification (Single A, AA, or AAA), and what division (Single A, A/AA OR AA/AAA) they are requesting to compete in for the event. MAJOR teams are welcome in our events but MUST play in their own designated MAJOR division, or play one age group above their own.
SINGLE "A" TEAMS
We have researched fall 2020 results, and will monitor ongoing spring 2021 results, for teams that wish to be considered for our Single "A" divisions. Single "A" divisions will be offered throughout the spring.
RINGS for 1st and 2nd place teams in each division.
TO GUARANTEE YOUR SPOT IN THIS EVENT
All teams must pay in full to secure their team’s spot in this event. If your team needs additional time to get a payment in to us, we will hold your spot for 5 business days. After 5 business days, your team’s spot will be in jeopardy of going to another team who pays their entry fee prior to your payment. Within 7 days of an event, all payments are due immediately upon registering.
