Registration Process

Registration for the 2021 tournament will look a little different than in the past.  We will be using a new app, Tourney Machine, to help us manage the tournament logistics including the registration process. 

All communication, game schedules and game results will be handled through Tourney Machine.  All coaches and parents should be sure to download the app and follow their teams so they can receive the latest information.

Registration Fees for the 2021 Tournament:

U12 - $750 per team

U14 - $800 per team

You can pay via credit card at the time you submit your registration.  If for some reason your team is not invited, your credit card payment will be refunded.  If you prefer to pay by check, you can select that option instead and submit one check for your entire team’s fee. Note that if you opt to pay by check and your check bounces, you will be required to pay in full plus any returned check fees before the tournament begins or your team will not be able to participate.

Invitations will be extended once registration closes on April 15, and any outstanding payments will be expected at that time for those teams that did not pay via credit card when initially submitting the registration.  The coach will receive an email confirming their invitation.  The email will also contain a link for you to verify and/or update your final rosters.

Each player must also have a completed waiver, which is to be kept with the coach throughout the tournament.

Registration for the 2021 Tournament is now closed.
