Q. Will there be a semi-final and final in each age group?
A. Teams are guaranteed 3 games. Brackets and format of championship round will be determined once all applications have been submitted and reviewed by the tournament management team. Divisions will then be established to create competitive pools for all teams.

Q. Will you accommodate coaches who coach multiple teams on the schedule?
A. Any coach that is coaching multiple teams must make the tournament director aware when registering each team, making a note during their application process. We will attempt to adjust game times and coaches with no more than two teams should not expect any coaching conflicts during bracket play games. We will do our very best to avoid coaching conflicts for all coaches but coaches with three or more teams should have a second coach/administrator available in case all circumstances cannot be met.

Q. Can I get a refund if we are unable play in the tournament?
A. Teams requesting refunds after the tournament registration deadline will not be considered.

Once your team has received an official email confirming that your team has been accepted and entered into a bracket your team is not entitled to a refund.

If the request is made in writing to the tournament director prior to the tournament registration deadline dates your refund request will be reviewed and a refund will be determined based on the date and tournament expenditures less $150.00 administration fee.
