Initial $500 TEAM registration fee covers up to 10 players on your roster. Even if you only have 7 players on your roster, the team fee still applies.
Each additional player is $50 and there is NO roster limit. (Your roster can have 20+ members)
If you have more than 10 players, we need the additional funds (charged as per player) to cover all the costs involved with having additional persons at the event. Do the math: (12 members = Team fee(covers 10) + 2*(player fee) = $500 + 2*($50) = $500 + $100 = $600 total for 12 members.)
This is a NON USAU sanctioned event.

(duplicate registration error; dropping from team; etc.). REMINDER. we can not refund the TEAM FEE (that is the minimum payment). Only fees that are “EXTRA” can be refunded. See below for information to swap or ‘replace’ players. There are NO REFUNDS after the tournament starts FRIDAY check-in registration. (we procured resources based on the registration numbers).
For captains. (you must be registered captain and logon to the ultimatecentral.com site to modify the roster)
To modify your roster, please follow instructions here, to perform a ‘drop and swap’.
This is the best means to exchange players on your roster.
Only Registered Captains can edit the roster. However CHECK YOUR ROSTER BEFORE FRIDAY NIGHT, heck, BEFORE FASTPASS DEADLINE. BE AWARE OF DOUBLE-REGISTRATIONS! (Where the Captain added a Player, AND the same Player added themselves to the team roster a second time!!!!). CHECK YOUR ROSTER BEFORE FRIDAY NIGHT CHECK-IN, heck, BEFORE FASTPASS DEADLINE. Please No Changes after July 26, 2023! (FASTPASS Deadline)
DO NOT change your team name after July 15! *SERIOUSLY*. Changing team names last minute creates a scheduling headache that waste TDs’ time, so Just DON’T DO IT! The TDs will change it back to the name prior to that date.
