April 17-18, 2021
Fly Park / Franklin, TN
TEAM GATE FEE / PAYMENT OPTION:
In order to help keep this event as touchless as possible, we have implemented a team gate fee instead of taking a gate at the event. By doing a team gate fee this will actually be cheaper on the teams instead of our normal $15 per person weekend pass. This will also eliminate the need for anyone to wear wristbands and will allow everyone to come in & out without being stopped at the gate. So, if you wanted to invite friends, aunts, uncles, grand parents etc tell them to come on out and watch without having to worry about them having to pay a gate fee.
We have set up Venmo for teams to pay their gate fees of $250 because there are no fees. When filling out the form on Venmo please indicate team name, age, coaches name and event. Thank you!

All scores and bracket updates will be posted online. Covid waivers need to be filled out and your roster needs to be online prior to your first game.
