$1125.00 for 4 Games (Two days)
No refunds will be given to teams withdrawing after acceptance.

Format:
All teams play four matches; two each day. Game scores are not recorded (this is a non-standing event). Therefore no awards are provided. The purpose of the Tournament is to provide quality matches and exposure of players to college coaches.

Game Length:
55 minute games

Roster Size:
18 player roster. The number of guest players is unlimited and must be included on the team roster.

Check-in Requirements:
Check-in is at Gavin Park and the Saratoga PBA Fields one hour before the beginning of each team's first game.

Teams are required to produce the following during check-in: official roster, player passes, tournament waiver forms, and travel permission if the league you are affiliated with requires it.

Player Profiles:
All accepted teams are required to complete our online Tournament Team Profile Form which is used for the College Coach Binder. We also encourage teams to bring their own more detailed profiles for distribution at the tournament.

Schedules:
Game schedules are posted approximately one week prior to the tournament. In the event of an unavoidable last minute schedule change, the tournament website will be updated and all college coaches will be notified. Because all fields are in close proximity to each other, changes in the schedule rarely affect a college coach's ability to view a particular team or player.

Inclement Weather:
The Tournament Directors and Referee Coordinator will determine playing conditions. In the case of severe weather, the Tournament Directors have the sole authority to change, cancel or reschedule any game and/or its format. In this case, each coach must assume the responsibility of checking at the administration tent for reschedule information.

Tournament Cancellation:
A partial refund will be issued to teams, if the tournament is canceled in its entirety. No refunds will be issued once the tournament begins, even if some games are not able to be played or completed.

Housing:
All out-of-area teams are required to reserve their housing through our official Tournament Housing Coordinator, Halpern Travel. Special rates have been negotiated for tournament participants at a select group of quality hotels, most within a half hour of the tournament site. If your team does not reserve its housing through Halpern Travel it will forfeit the team's eligibility to participate in the tournament.

Application and Acceptance:

An application is NOT reviewed for acceptance until the payment and printed application are received by mail, at the Tournament Headquarters.

Both the application and entry fee must be mailed no later than May 15th, 2017. Any team sending an application after this date will be put on a wait list for review.

We anticipate that the tournament will be full this year and some teams may be turned away. Submitting an application DOES NOT mean that your team will definitely be invited to participate. All teams will be notified of acceptance through email to the contacts listed on the application.

Applying early might give your team a slight advantage in the selection process, however many factors are considered and it is not an automatic guarantee of acceptance.
