    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.

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

Tournament, Credit & Refund Policies

Tournament Policies

All Aloha Tournament events are smoke free, pet free and alcohol free events. No grills, generators, noisemakers or air horns are allowed.  Thank you for respecting our fans and players!

Credit Policy

Involuntary Cancellation Policy – Weather, Facility Closure, COVID-19, etc.

Deposits are non-refundable for all Aloha Tournaments Lacrosse team events. Teams attending a Aloha Tournaments Lacrosse team event must pay an initial deposit with the full balance due in full 60 days prior to the event. If an event is involuntarily cancelled, teams paid in full will be offered a 90% credit or a 50% refund of their paid in full balance. Those teams not paid in full (deposit only or partial balance) will receive a 50% credit of the balance paid. Credits or refunds will be processed a minimum of 60 days after the event. Aloha Tournaments Lacrosse will not be responsible for any ancillary or related expenses incurred by any individual, team, club or organization if the tournament is canceled in whole or in part.

Voluntary Cancellation Policy – Team Chooses to Withdraw

Deposits are non-refundable for all Aloha Tournaments Lacrosse team events. Teams attending a Aloha Tournaments Lacrosse team event must pay an initial deposit with the final balance due in full 60 days prior to the event. If a team that has paid in full wishes to withdraw and submits a request at least 60 days prior to the scheduled event date, Aloha Tournaments Lacrosse will issue a full credit less the initial deposit amount or a full refund less the initial deposit amount. No credit or refund requests of any kind will be granted if a cancelation is made less than 60 days prior to the scheduled event date. Credits or refunds will be processed a minimum of 60 days after the date of the request to withdraw. Aloha Tournaments Lacrosse will not be responsible for any ancillary or related expenses incurred by any individual, team, club or organization if the team wishes to withdraw in whole or in part.

Weather Policy

In the event of adverse weather 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. 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 issues for any team that is disqualified due to a violation of roster or tournament rules.
  • No refunds will be issued for games cancelled for forfeits, no shows, etc.
  • No refunds will be issued for games shortened due to weather.
  • No refunds will be issued for playoff or championship games canceled due to weather.
