  • What is the tournament waiver? Where can I get one?
    • Every player (or guardian of a player if the participant is under 18) must complete and sign a waiver. Players may complete the waiver via the online Player Registration form that is sent to coaches after a team is registered or through a Team Roster Waiver form. The Team Roster Waiver form can be found below. No player will be allowed to participate without a waiver.

We will also make our best efforts to contact team coaches with updates as they become available. If an event is canceled due to inclement weather, we will explore rescheduling options and notify all registered teams. Games will be played in the event of rain but may be suspended at any time at the discretion of the Tournament Director. Games will be played as long as the field remains playable.
