Registration and Check In Process

Here's all the information you need to be ready for check-in.

Check in will be on the day of the tournament at Larry Mills Park 45 minutes prior to your first game (even if your game is at a different location).

Be sure to give yourself enough time if your first match is at Boyce Park, Ross Hollow, or any other remote field as you have to register at the Main Fields. If you are at Boyce Park, Ross Hollow, or a remote field tell the Parking Director and he will point you to the upper parking lot to expedite the process using designated spaces for the coaches to park so you can quickly register and go to your offsite field. Our Registrar and Vice President will be checking-in all teams at our main information booth which is next to the concession stand at the main fields. Please contact us the week prior to the tournament if you are a coach traveling from a far distances and your first game at 8 AM. We can make special arrangements for you to check-in ahead of time.

  1. Every coach should have two copies of their PA West (or equivalent in other states) stickered roster (we DO NOT have a copy machine or printer at the fields). You keep one to show the Field Marshalls and we will keep one (you do not get the second copy back). Guest player names should be written on the roster with a note that they are your guest players.
    1. By tournament weekend, some clubs may have not yet had their rosters and cards approved by the PA West registrar. In these cases, bring your Spring roster or a copy of the roster that your Club Registrar plans to submit to PA West (preferred).
    2. All participants on your team need their player cards or birth certificate. If the player card has not yet been issued (especially for U9 and U10's), a birth certificate is required.
  2. Guest Players
    1. Guest player names should be written on the roster with a note that they are your guest players.
    2. All guest players need a birth certificate or a PA West player card. No player without a player card or birth certificate will be permitted to play.
    3. There is a maximum of three (3) guest players allowed per team.
  3. We will verify your player cards/birth certificates at check-in against your rosters. Our Field Marshall's will also check your roster and player cards / birth certificates before each game (to clarify, a birth certificate is not needed if the player has a card).
  4. You also need to bring a medical release form for each player which we will keep. The PA West medical release forms are acceptable or your Club standard medical release forms. There is a link to the Plum medical release form on this page. Note: bring copies as we keep the forms and do not return them.

Your whole team does not have to be with you when you check-in, however, you do need players cards or birth certificates for each of them along with a completed medical release form (for each player) found below:

Tournament Rules

The Rules of Competition for the Tournament are accessible by clicking the button below. Additionally, the following are some areas we would like to stress:

  • Please do not argue with the referees!
  • We will be enforcing a zero-tolerance policy and parents/coaches will be asked to leave the field if they cause any issues with referees or opposing teams.
  • Coaches are to act as the spokesperson for the team. We do not want to receive questions from the parents about the tournament and would prefer that inquiries be filtered through a team manager or coach. This also applies to issues that may arise on game day.
  • Remember that the participants are kids and we want them to have fun!
