We are offering an early check in option on Friday night, June 3rd, 2016. We realize that not every team will be able to take advantage of this early check in option but we hope that those checking in on Saturday morning will not have to experience long lines because of the early check option.
A few items to keep in mind:
All teams must check in no later than 45 minutes before your first game. The registration tables at all location will be open at 7:15am with plenty of staffing on the day of the tournament. Priority check in will be given to those teams with 8:00am games.
Check in procedure: Only the coach or the team manager needs to check in for the team. Players do not need to be present at check in. You will need to bring the following items to check in:
LUFC recommends that each team have their roster arranged in alphabetical order, as well as player passes and medical release forms to speed up the check-in process.
Each team must present their completed rosters, complete check-in and have paid their entry fee in full prior to playing their first game.
Fields maps and directions to the fields are below.
If you have questions about tournament rules or regulations, please refer to the Lakes United FC Tournament Rules on this page.
We are excited to offer a Penalty Shoot Out Competition for the U11 and U12 teams! The winning team in each age group will receive an award.
We will also have game areas, and concessions at all locations. Feel free to bring a team tent to cool off or stay dry, there will be plenty of room to set one up!
Weather issues - we will suspend tournament play at the sign of lightning. If this happens, the tournament director will communicate the suspensions to all field marshals via cell phone. Depending on when the suspended play begins, games will be shortened to make up time, or if necessary, rescheduled to Sunday, the 5th (only under extreme circumstances).
Contact the Tournament Director at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Please review the 2016 Tournament rules prior to registering and come ready to have some fun on June 4th!!
