Tournament Requests:

NO request will be taken 13 days before the event begins for any reason.

No special scheduling for coaching two or more teams. You must have another coach available.

All teams must be prepared to play the first game slot of the event.

Also, no time requests on last day, unless flights are involved, and you must tell us 14 days before the start of the event.

Once the schedule is up, there will be no changes, unless it is our mistake. If a change is made at your request it will be a $100 fee.
