It is incredibly important for MSHSL teams to note that while the tournament is intended to serve as an end of season contest for the spring season, it must be run as a summer event. This is to ensure teams comply with MSHSL guidelines which restrict the number of competitions allowed in a single-season to 13 games. Coaches and team administrators should review MSHSL policies and check with athletic directors to ensure that they follow "out of season" guidelines.
Team Registration Deadline: Pushed Back to Monday April 22, 2019
*This tournament is limited to 18 Boys JV Teams, 6 Girls JV Teams, 12 Boys Prep Teams, and 6 Girls Prep Teams. Registrations are accepted on a first-come-first-serve basis. Registrations received after the deadline are not guaranteed to be scheduled and will incur a $100 late fee.
A $250 deposit is required for each team registered. Deposits are non-refundable and due at the time of registration. Teams are not considered fully registered until deposit payments are received. The remaining balance is due no later than April 26, 2019.
