All participant waiver forms must be handed in together along with registration forms and government approved identification at the time of registration – no exceptions!

What else do I need to bring with me when I sign up?

In the event you do not have official identification with you at the time of registration, your team will not be eligible to register. All team members MUST have identification with them at the time of registration.

What will happen if I do not bring my identification with me to the tournament?

Failure to produce your official piece of identification (e.g., birth certificate, passport or official license) that includes your date of birth means forfeit for that particular player for that particular game.

Do all the team members need to be present in order to sign up?
