Teams that register online are able to login and make roster substitutions free of charge. Teams that register via the paper entry form will be charged a $10 processing fee to substitute players. Teams are strongly encouraged to register online to eliminate any roster change fees.
All players must check in at the registration table prior to each game. Be prepared to show I.D. Player names will be cross-checked against the Master Roster. Due to liability issues, no player will be allowed to step on the field of play without paying the entry fee and signing the Release of Liability Waiver. This will be strictly enforced.
Players are allowed to play on one team ONLY. To protect the integrity of the tournament, no player will be allowed to “Roster Jump”, or move from team to team during the tournament. Any team caught with a player not on their roster, or with a player who jumped from another roster, will be forced to forfeit that game.
MINIMUM ROSTER SIZE: Seven players. If registering online, the minimum roster size must be entered to advance to check-out.
NOTE: Rosters WILL be checked during tournament. Please make sure your roster is current prior to the July 16 deadline.
TEAM WAIVER: The team waiver form must be signed by each team member, or by parent/guardian if the participant is 18 years or younger. If the team is registered online, and the online waiver for each player is clicked as ‘Accepted’, no printed/signed waiver is needed.
