·  Schedule update: Please re-check your team's schedule as we've had to make a few changes in the past week. Please note that you may have to refresh the page to see the latest version. This schedule is the final schedule, no changes can be made.

·  Registration: Please arrive an hour before your first game on Saturday to register.  Registration will take place at the main tent at the site of your first game.  Please make sure you bring your official roster, two copies of it, and player passes and medical release forms for all players.  More information is listed here.

·  Guest Players: You are allowed up to 3 guest players.  All guest players must have current player passes (can be travel or rec).  To save time at registration please write the guest players onto the roster copies (not the official roster) prior to registration.

·  Parking: Parking at Hellwig Park and Howison will be very difficult as we have a lot of teams at both sites.  This will be a bit of a challenge so please try to carpool if possible and only park in the designated parking areas.  We will have traffic control people at these locations to help with the parking.

·  Weather: In the case of inclement weather, please check the website for updates about any schedule changes.
