Greetings All!

Silver Teams
Silver Teams and 14 Gold schedules are now posted on their team pages. An additional tournament may be added, it would be posted if one becomes available. Please note the 14’s have not been split yet. Those rosters will be posted soon as received from the coaches. All Silver teams and 14 Gold are playing in the St Louis Qualifier listed on the teams pages. Please make your reservations if you have not yet done so. This is a Stay & Play tournament and you are required to use the link on the team page to book you room. Be sure to include your players name on the reservation rooming list. This is how the housing company counts compliance.

Qualifiers and Start Times
A note about start times for all out of state Qualifiers. We require all our players to arrive a minimum of the night before to all out of state qualifiers for several reasons. All Qualifiers and most tournaments schedules and results are on AES ( Advanced Event Systems). The start times are usually posted 2-3 days before the first day of play. Some larger tournaments will have a AM or PM start time, or may be on a “wave” schedule. We can not guarantee your team will start in the AM wave or PM (afternoon) wave, and the tournament hosts can not predict last minute changes to the tournament which may affect the start times. One year in St Louis the teams were “flip-flopped” on their start times! It was a good thing we had all our teams there the night before!

For 16, 17 and 18 Gold Teams
We have many families who do not have a room booked for Chicago in January OR you may have not listed your player on your rooming list when you made your reservation. Please go back in your reservation and add your player. This is the only way the tournament directors know to count you for compliance. If you are waiting until 11/18/19 when additional Q/D rooms are added to the inventory, please be sure to include your players name! There are still K rooms available!
- The Chicago June tournament at Palos courts hotel is being finalized and that link will be posted soon as it becomes available.
- Reno hotel will hopefully be posted before Thanksgiving. Check your teams page frequently. This is a Stay & Play tournament and this not an option to stay
elsewhere than our designated team hotel. If you have questions, email Melissa at The dates of play are now posted on your teams page.
- GOLD team contracts and a link for paying will be sent very soon from Director Wes Almond. Please check your email for this important email.
