COMMUNICATION & CHECK-IN

In order to participate, a team roster form must be completed and turned in at check-in. As with most other tournaments, birth certificates, and concussion certificates are required to be available for inspection upon demand.

Prior to the tournament, please direct any questions to Kelli Mitsch, Burnsville Tournament Director at  or (952) 381-4834. * During the tournament, Kelli will field questions only from the site coordinators. 

A site coordinator will be at every site wearing black and gold staff lanyards. Please check in with the site coordinator at least one hour prior to your first game. You can check in at the location where you have your first game. All questions during the tournament should be directed to your site coordinator. 

WEATHER

In the case of rain, please do not leave the facility until the site director gives direction. The umpire may delay the game, but the tournament staff, along with the Cities of Savage and Burnsville will determine whether there will still be play or whether we are canceling for all or part of the day.

In the event of rain, whether a rainout or delay, we reserve the right to modify the tournament structure to complete as much play as possible. You can stay up to date via Tourney Machine for all weather updates. 

SCHEDULING 

We ask that coaches aim flexible with requests to start games early when possible. Site directors will request an early start when an opportunity is available. Teams should be onsite 30 minutes in advance to accommodate this. 
 
Being flexible in this will allow the tournament to flow easier for all and minimize delays. Please note, there is also a hard stop in pool play for 14 and 15U of 2 hours. Please keep the games moving so we are able to keep on schedule and allow our umpires time between games.
 
We expect to post Sunday morning schedules on our website by 11:00 p.m. Saturday night. Please be patient as Tourney Machine does not handle tie-breakers. The schedule is now available to be viewed on Tourney Machine.
 

Thank you and good luck to all of the teams! Let's play ball!
