Sand Tournament Policies & Procedures
All tournament schedules and pools will be posted by 5:00 PM the day before the event on BracketPal. All formats (pool and bracket) are subject to change based on entries, drops, weather, or unforeseen circumstances. Pool play followed by single elimination bracket; will take a minimum of 2 teams from pool play, more if able. All teams will be guaranteed a minimum of 84 points; either 3 games to 28 points or 4 games to 21 points.
There must be a minimum of 4 teams for a division to make. If a division does not meet the minimum requirement, the tournament director is allowed to combine divisions.
All teams must be present by the end of check-in and for the player meeting, even if you do not play the first game. If you are not present, then you risk being forfeited from the tournament
Tournament start time is generally 9:00 AM (subject to change based on number of teams and weather.) Division times are subject to change based on registrations.
Please contact email@example.com for more information.
Tournament refunds will be reviewed on a case by case basis. Refunds being asked for before the entry deadline will be given minus a 10% processing fee. No refunds will be given after the entry deadline. If for some reason a team is unable to participate in a tournament and notification is given after the entry deadline, the reason for not participating will be reviewed by the tournament director. If the reason for not participating was out of the participants control then a full credit will be given to the team/club/participants to be used on a future tournament entry at ASC Sand.
If a tournament division is cancelled due to not meeting the minimum required number of teams, a full refund will be offered. The tournament director has the right to combine divisions to meet the minimum number.
If a tournament is cancelled before a tournament begins for any reason due to inclement weather, a full refund will be offered to all participants.
If a tournament is cancelled during a tournament, a 50% refund will be offered to all participants, as long as 50% of play was completed. If less than 50% is completed, a full refund will be offered to all participants.
If the tournament completes pool play and is cancelled during the playoffs, no refunds will be given.
Tournaments can be delayed or paused during inclement weather and then resume play if possible.
Walk-up registration will be allowed only if space is available. An extra $10 fee will be added to the tournament entry fee for all walk up teams or teams that register after the entry deadline.
