ADMISSION FEE: $10/day per adult. Kids 18 and younger are free. (There is no charge for coaches and players) Please enter through the main front door to pay and obtain your wristband.   We are asking for just 2 adults per rostered athlete – siblings do not count against this total.

CHAMPIONSHIP TABLE: There will be a tournament director located at the championship table if there are any questions regarding the tournament. Coaches need to check in there.

 NO TOLERANCE POLICY: Sportsmanship and fair play are the highest priority. We want our tournament to be competitive and demonstrate all the positive aspects of youth sports. There will be no tolerance for misconduct by players, coaches, or spectators. Cussing or loud negative comments directed at a player, Coach, another parent, or official will be grounds for expulsion from the tournament. If you witness any misconduct please advise the court official or a tournament representative at the Championship desk. Positive Cheering and encouragement for your team is welcome.
