For the showcase events, you can pick up any player that is of the age you are playing. They do not have to be rostered on your official roster. For the National Qualifiers, they must be on your official roster to be eligible to participate.
 
Can I request special game times?
 
When signing up for the tournament you will know roughly the start and end times of the tournament. By entering in the tournament you are agreeing to play at anytime during the designated times. There will be no special request made. Once the schedule has been released, making changes have a domino effect on other teams.
 
What do I need at check in?
 
For the showcase tournaments, the coach only needs to provide team insurance *. The players do not have be present at check in. For the National qualifiers, the players will need to present and provide ID if needed.
*Any insurance will be accepted - NSA, ASA, PGF, USSSA, etc.
 
Do I have to use your hotel provider?
 
Yes, you have to use the hotel provider. You can contact them once the information is released, if not they will contact you. These are stay to play tournaments.
 
Will softballs be provided?

What are the rules?
 
Showcase events will use modified rules that are posted on the tournament page. National qualifiers will use the associated rules. 
 
When will I know I have been accepted into the tournaments?
 
Your team will appear on the teams accepted link on each tournament page. An email should follow shortly after. If your name does not appear on the teams accepted page, then they are defaulted into the waiting list. The tournaments will fill up fast, and will have a waiting list.
 
When will the tournament schedule be released?
 
It is our objective to get the schedule released several weeks in advance. Do not email asking when? The schedules generally will take several days to complete. We are aware that you are excited about and want to know who you will be playing and your game times.
 
What happens if I get thrown out of a game?
 
If a coach gets thrown out of a showcase game, they will be sit out the remainder of the game, and are allowed to coach the rest of the tournament. But, because it is inappropriate to get thrown out of a showcase game, your standing for entering any other future showcase events will be questioned.
