Teams may play Saturday, Sunday, or both days. All teams guaranteed four games. Depending on # of teams in tournament – the format could be either of the following options. 3 game guarantee bracketed tournament. Otherwise teams will be put into a pool where they will play a round robin format. Top teams in each pool will move to Gold division while remaining pool teams will move to Silver division – all divisions will then be bracketed out for a single elimination tournament

Registration Fees & Deadlines

NEW THIS YEAR! Updated Registration Software!

  • Visit your sport-specific webpage to find the registration link.
  • Fill out a separate form for each participant and sport you are registering for.

PRICING DEADLINES:$265 for first event until July 2 (no FREE shirt)


ENTRY FEE INCLUDES:  Competition and Summer Fun Freebies (coming soon) courtesy of our sponsors.

SHIRT SHIPPING: Teams who register by June 19 will have their shirt shipped to the address they provide. Upgrade and additional shirts will be available to purchase during registration. There is no packet pickup—information or items needed for competition will be provided onsite or online according to instructions emailed to athletes.

NOTE: Team boxes will not be shipped until after the June 19 shirt deadline. Shirt sizes and quantities will be final after that date.

PAPER ENTRY FORMS: Paper entry forms will be accepted with a $5 processing fee. Registering online saves time, money and trees.

UMPIRE FEES: Each team must bring $10 in cash to the coin-flip of each game played for the umpire fees. This makes it fair for all teams and assures that the teams who get eliminated early don’t have to pay as much for the umpire fees as the teams who continue to advance. Per player entry fees have been discounted to account for this charge.

SCHEDULING NOTE: It is Nebraska Sports Council policy to not release team or divisional information until after the entry deadline. With teams waiting until on or near the deadline to enter, releasing data prior to that day does not provide an accurate picture of the tournament field and serves only to discourage those taking a wait-and-see approach.

All teams are encouraged to take advantage of the early entry discount and enter prior to that deadline, which in turn generates additional interest as teams attract one another. In the rare event that a division does not supply enough teams to warrant a viable tournament, teams will be given the option to move to another division, or be issued a refund. We appreciate the understanding of coaches and parents on this matter and would encourage teams to enter early and trust that there will be adequate competition in all divisions.
