Can teams add players to the roster after submitted?
No- All teams will be submitting a copy of their actual League Roster with League signatures, along with the roster we require. If an athlete is not on the league roster- the athlete can not play. The teams roster will be verified through a third party via verification link.
If a player is missing any validation information at bookcheck- can they play?
Due to new verification policy and procedure- all athletes will need to be verified before arriving at the event. No exceptions
Who books hotel rooms for teams?
Each team is responsible to book their own room at one of our Stay-To-Play hotels listed on our website. We arranged for discounted rates at these hotels for our athletes and families and are constantly updating the list as new options become available.
What paperwork is needed for the team?
Once teams are registered with a deposit made, they will receive an email packet and book verification link, which includes all of the paperwork that needs to be completed. Regional calls will be made as a Help Tool to guide team moms/managers through the process. It is important to get the information completed as quickly as possible so you can focus more on the game.
