The tournament will be comprised of 16 co-ed teams of 4 (each team can have a 7-player max). Each game will have two 15-minute halves with a 7-minute rest period. The tournament is single elimination and is a non-league sanction friendly tournament. A $200.00 registration fee will be due for each team by 2/17/20. The tournament winning team will be awarded $3000.00.
This tournament is free for the general public, spectators, and fans to attend. They invite everyone to come and cheer on the teams and have some fun.
