All team rosters are verified by the State Eligibility Committee prior to tournament play.  Last season, we reviewed 17,250 Proof of Eligibility documents!

GRANDFATHER EXCEPTION:  Any player who participated in a prior State tournament is automatically approved for 2023 play and does not need to re-submit Proof of Eligibility (POE) documents.  However, ALL players, returning or not, are required to have a new Parent/Guardian Waiver submitted for 2023.


State Reps attend many of our Qualifier Tournaments to award top teams with their Gold Ticket invitation to State.
