Q: Do I need to be COVID vaccinated?
First two vaccinations shots are sufficient. If you are not vaccinated, you should take a test not more than three days prior to our event. Home tests are fine. It's up to the team managers to keep track of who is vaccinated and who takes the tests. It's all on the honor system. We are just trying to put on a tournament and keep everyone safe.

Q: How can I add a player to my roster?
You can add players to your roster through an online form that will be made available to managers after the rosters and schedules are posted in August.
