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.
     

Every attempt will be made to update cancellations on the Aloha 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 observered 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 saftey of any player. 

Weather Refund Policy

  • No refunds will be issued for games canceled for reasons other than weather. (forfeits, no shows, etc.)
  • No refunds will be issued for games shortened due to weather.
  • If one game is canceled due to weather, there will be no refund.
  • Middle School (15U, 13U, & 11U)  - If a second game is canceled due to weather, the team will receive a $199 refund, and an additional $199 refund for each game canceled thereafter.
  • High School - If a second game is canceled due to weather, the team will receive a $274 refund, and an additional $274 refund for each game canceled thereafter.
  • No refunds will be issued for playoff or championship games canceled due to weather.
  • Since teams register, and are paid for under a lot of different names, teams will be required to complete a Weather Refund Request Form that will be available on the tournament website.  This will indicate the team requesting the refund, to whom the check should be made payable and where the check should be mailed.  No refunds will be issued if a Weather Request Form is not submitted within 30 days of the tournament.

Roster & Waiver Submission

Step 1: Coaches Only-Invite your players to join your team.

  1. 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)
  2. 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 could invalidate your roster.
  3. 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.
  1. You can log back into your dashboard and keep track of how many parents have registered and re-send the invitations if need be.

*Parents: The waiver process is all completed online. Your child’s coach should have sent you an email with an invite link to join the team for that Tournament. The link is specific for your child’s team and the event/division. If you did not receive this email/link, please contact your coach directly. They handle this part of the process. They can assist you or resend you another link. 

Step 2: Coaches-Upload final Roster and Waiver Verification Form.

  1. Once all your players have registered, you will need to submit a complete roster to Aloha Tournaments as required by their insurance provider. This also allows Aloha Tournaments to verify player/roster eligibility at the event if necessary.
  2. To submit the final roster, please complete the form below:
    Autumn Classic I  Roster Verification Form.
    Autumn Classic II  Roster Verification Form.
  3. If you already have a roster created in your own format, you may submit that as long as it contains the following information for each player (First Name, Last Name, Jersey #, Date of Birth, Graduation Year, email address, Street Address, Phone # & school name). For recruiting years we suggest you include HS name on template. Sample Roster.
