Roster & Waiver Submission

Roster and Waiver Submission Process

1. Invite your coaches as STAFF - this way all communications can be recieved by everyone and invites can be monitored for roster.

To do this, please visit your Aloha Dashboard and under 'My Staff Assignments' click the 'INVITE STAFF' button for your team(s) and enter staff person email - hit send.

2. Invite your player's parents to join your team.

    a) For your team to be eligible to participate in this tournament, you must invite all your players/parents to join the roster and complete their online waivers.

    b) To do this, please visit your Aloha Dashboard and under 'My Staff Assignments' click the 'INVITE PLAYERS' button for your team(s).  (Be sure not to click 'INVITE STAFF')

    c) To invite all the players at once, you can copy and paste an entire column of emails from a spreadsheet, but only submit one email per child.  Otherwise, both parents will try to register the same child and it will mess up your roster.

    d) If you have twins on your roster, you will need to re-send an invitation to the same parent again after they have registered their first child.

    e) You can log back into your dashboard and keep track of how many parents have registered and also re-send the invitations if need be.

2. Submit your team roster.

From your dashboard click on your team’s name. On the left column click on ROSTER. You will see the following message;

WARNING: PLEASE READ BEFORE SUBMITTING YOUR ROSTER

You may only submit this team’s roster once. Before you submit this roster, you must verify that all players have been sent and have accepted their invitation to join this team for this particular event.

If additional players accept invitations, or are otherwise added to this team after your roster has been submitted, your team may be subject to disqualification for this event.

If you have any questions or want to verify that your roster is complete before submitting, please call our office at 410-252-5642 (Mon-Fri 9am-5pm) or email us at info@alohatournaments.com

You can only submit your roster after ALL your players have completed their waivers. You check pending invites by using the drop down box below message and choosing pending invites.

The following fields must be filled out before roster can be submitted:

Tournament Policies

Weather Policy

In the event of adverse weather or unplayable field conditions, the tournament director reserves the right to:

  • Reduce the game times in order to catch up with the schedule.
  • Finish games before inclement weather arrives or to preserve field conditions.
  • Reschedule games, if possible.
  • Convert tournament to a "Festival" format without playoffs or championships to provide the majority of the teams the opportunity to play as many games as possible.
     

Every attempt will be made to update cancellations on the Aloha Tournaments website and Aloha app.  However, weather conditions can change rapidly, and all teams should be prepared to play as soon as weather clears and fields are playable. 

If thunder or lightning is observed at any location, play will be suspended immediately, and players and fans will be required to leave the field. Play will be allowed to resume 30 minutes after the last sound of thunder or sight of lightning is observed.  If a game is in progress:

  • The period will end immediately.
  • If a game is in the second half, the game will be considered final and the score at that point will be recorded. 
  • If a game is in the first half, when play resumes it will be the start of the second half. 
     

Every attempt will be made to begin subsequent games on time. If the start of the second half of the suspended game delays the onset of the subsequent game the following actions will occur:

  • The suspended game will play a 20 minute running time second half.
  • Subsequent games will begin immediately after the preceding games (teams will warm up on the sideline prior to the game). These games will consist of one 35 minute running time period until games are back on schedule.  Teams will have one 30 second timeout per game not to be used in the last two minutes of the  game (the clock will not stop during these timeouts). 
  • Once games are back on schedule, they will revert back to two 20 minutes running time periods. 

We will make every attempt to play every minute of every game, but we will not jeopardize the safety of any player. 

All games canceled due to weather will be considered a 4 - 2 win for both teams.

Refund Policy 

  • No refunds will be issued for any team that voluntarily drops from the tournament after the tournament registration deadline of September 27, 2019
  • No refunds will be issues for any team that is disqualified after 9/27/2019 due to a violation of roster or tournament rules.
  • No refunds will be issued for games cancelled for reasons other than weather. (forfeits, no shows, etc)
