How are divisions decided?
All divisions are grade based. This means, if your child was accelerated in school, he or she can not play down due to age. They must play with their current grade level. At times, we do allow players to play up a division, but this decision is made between the coaches, parents, and tournament directors.
Where should we stay?
We have a wonderful travel agent available to all coaches and families. Please visit our travel information page to get in touch with Erik!

Our main vendor location is in Edwards. If you are not finding what you are looking for, we encourage you to make the drive.
Where can I find the player waiver?
Player waivers will be emailed to you by your child's coach. Once your coach or team admin completes the registration process through Tourney Machine, you will be sent an email with a waiver verification code. At this time, you will be asked to complete the waiver.
