2) Don’t have a team and want to play?! Sign up as an individual!

**Signing up as an individual does NOT guarantee you a spot BUT we will do our absolute best to get every player who wants to play in.

3) Want to enter a team but need a few more players or a goalie?!

  • Need a few more players or a goalie to round out your team roster?  Let us know!  We will try to help connect you with players/goalies who signed up as an individual to help you round out your team!

Tournament Divisions

  • Depending on sign up we will split teams into competitive brackets
    • Example = AAA division, AA division
  • On sign up form make sure to correctly designate your team’s or player’s level of play so we can properly split up teams into competitive brackets
  • We will contact all teams after June 9th sign up deadline to inform them of brackets.  Teams have until June 30th to accept or decline tournament entry.  Payments are due June 30th.  Team cancellations after June 30th are non-refundable!


  • If you are entering your own team, the team fee does NOT include jerseys.  Jerseys do NOT need to have numbers on the back but MUST be matching.
    • On sign up form select the color jersey that your team plans to wear.  This way we know teams will have different colors. 
    • If the jersey color you have is not available, then make sure too have 2 different color jerseys or select a color jersey that is available.
      • Example = If your team has white jerseys but white is no longer a jersey color option, then make sure your team has 2 jerseys to use.  A white jersey and then a 2nd jersey any other color to use.
    • If your team needs jerseys let us know and we can help!  Cost is $15/jersey and would be yours to keep!
