Developmental Tournament Registration

May 5, 2016

The Developmental Tournament is Saturday June 4th at Marshall Elementary in the North Hills. Registration is now closed.

Here are a few details about the tournament.

  • The registration fee is $100.00
  • Your Tournament team does not need to be the same team as your regular season team.
  • The format of the Tournament is 5 v 5 (4 field players plus a goalie). The recommended team size is 8-10.
  • Each team will play a minimum of 3 games, 20 minutes each. If you win your group, you will advance to the next round.
  • It is recommended that you enter a team by grade, for example all 1st grade, all 2nd grade, etc. There will be four championships - 1st grade, 2nd grade, 3rd grade, and 4th grade. If you do enter a mixed team, then 1st must play with 2nd and 3rd must play with 4th.
  • If you enter a 1st/2nd combined team, they will play against similar teams in group play and might have to play a 2nd grade only team in the second round. Likewise, with a 3rd and 4th grade mixed team. They will play against similar teams in group play and might play a 4th grade only team in the second round.
  • The total number of teams will determine the times of games and of the tournament. Here is an overview – the opening games will kick off at 8:00. The morning games will finish at approx.. 11:00. If you advance, you’ll have a second round game around 12:00, etc., etc. The more you win, the more you play but a good rule of thumb is 6-7 hours max at the field.
  •  The roster and money can be turned in the day of the Tournament.
