  • Additional sanitizer (for equipment) will be available for use upon request by asking on site field staff.  We will be using state approved sanitization products that require 5-minute contact for full protection, please be aware of contact time on label for proper use.  


Field Entrance – Exit
There are designated entrances and exits to each field pod.  Enter only through the entrance, exit only through the exit.  Each entrance/exit will be monitored by an onsite field representative.  Only those with proper credentials will be allowed in the field pod areas.

  • It is important that you collect your belongings and leave the field in a timely manner as the incoming team can’t enter until you have left the area.

Per our agreement with the State of NV regulations department, who approve being able to hold this event, only one spectator per registered player will be allowed.

It's a HARD NO on animals until we go back to the risk free life.

  • Disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces

  • Wear a face mask for added protection

  • Avoid sharing food, drinks, towels

  • Wear a clean uniform to each match

The Bottom Line – We aren’t putting up with any nonsense!

  • We have no interest in being the social distance police but if need be, we will be.  

  • We do not want to penalize teams for not following these guidelines, but we will. 

  • We don’t want to be the wear a mask police, but we will be.

  • You are legally an adult if you are playing in this event.  Don't act a fool and play around, be a responsible adult.

  • Don't waste your energy fighting the rules, use that energy for good like spreading compliments, positivity, love.....  Don't go on a 5 minute rant to us about wearing the mask or being 6' apart, nobody wants to hear it. We get it, nobody wants to do these things, they aren't fun, but until this virus is gone it's how we roll and we will be doing our part to keep everyone safe

  • But what if we are already vaccinated? Congratulations!  Thank you for doing that and helping stop the virus. We (staff) have also been vaccinated but we are still following the rules and are happy to do so for as long as it takes. 


We are extremely lucky to be given the opportunity to hold this event in the first place.  We will abide by ALL the guidelines given to us by the State of NV and we are not going to mess it up.  All of these things are put in place to keep BOTH of us safe (not to mention the tons of people you come into contact with on a daily basis).  Yes, we want to hug (most) of you, but not this time around.  Can we still laugh and have fun and catch up?  Absolutely, but just from 6’ away.  If it seems hard to do, then forego the deodorant and perfumes and people will be less likely to get closer than 6’:)

​​We were registered and paid for a spring 2020 tournament that was postponed.  Can we use that payment for a future tournament.  

  • Yes!  Emails have been sent to team managers. All previous payments will be able to be used as a credit for any tournament until June 2022.  


Will we be refunded for a previous payment?

  • No. Per the tournament application we do not issue refunds.
  • Your payment (for a spring 2020 event only) can be able to be applied to any future tournament through June 2022.


My team won it's division in 2019 and we didn't get to play in the spring...
