Prize money for each competition will be determined by how much money I have to work with. After I figure the field rental, first place shirts, referee pay, and entry fees, I will be able to determine what places and amounts I can give.

I am attaching the link below for team registration using Google Forms.  These must be completed by Sep 22nd. Once submitted, I will email the roster sheet to be returned no later than Oct 5.  Rosters are locked on Oct 10.  The waiver link will be available Oct 1 through Oct 20.  All players must accept online waiver to be able to participate in the tournament.

There will be a mandatory team check in on Friday evening at the host hotel between 7 and 9 pm to verify members listed on your roster. Bonus points for alphabetizing the names! We will have rosters printed and distribute wristbands to managers.  Every player must present picture ID to the field commissioner prior to entering each game.  All players must wear wristbands at every game.  

If a player receives a yellow card, there is a $10 fine; if a player receives a red card, there is a $30 fine. All fines must be paid prior to the team’s next game. If a red card is received, the player must sit out one game and the team cannot play until the fine is paid. Any player that receives a red card will not play in their team’s next game.
