Roster & Waiver Submission

Roster and Waiver Submission Process

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.
  4. 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 this 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, Street Address, Phone #). Submit your roster here.

Rules and Policies

Rules of Play

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!

All rules will be in accordance with NFHS standards unless otherwise noted.

  1. Playing time will consist of 2 twenty minute running time halves with a five minute halftime.  Games will begin promptly.
  2. Each team will receive one 30 second timeout each half at which time the clock will stop.  Timeouts will not carry over to the next half.  If a team does not return to the field in a prompt manner after the timeout they will either lose possession of the ball or be assessed a delay of game penalty.
  3. The clock will stop on all whistles in the last 2 minutes of the game if the goal differential is 2 goals or less.
  4. Playoff & Championship games will consist of 2 fifteen minute running time periods. A one minute timeout will separate the periods at which time the teams will change ends of the field. Each team will have one 30 second timeout per game at which the clock will stop. The clock will stop on all whistles during the last two minutes of the game.
  5. There will be no overtime in regulation play.
  6. All ties in playoff games will be decided by a sudden victory overtime period. Teams will remain at the same end of the field where they finished the game. If the game remains tied after 8 minutes, a one minute break will be called by the officials at which time teams will change ends.
  7. All penalties will be running time.  The penalty clock will begin when the official blows the whistle to restart play.
  8. Substitutions will be on the fly only, except on a time serving penalty.  In that case the teams will have a quick horn to get EMO or EMD on the field.
  9. There will be no advancement rules at 2021/2022-2025/26.  If a team appears to be stalling they will be warned, then forced to keep the ball in the box.  This call will be made at the referee's discretion. 
  10. There will be no stick checks unless requested by the opposing coach.  If the stick is found to be legal, the challenging team will be assessed a timeout.  If no timeouts remain, a delay of game technical foul will be assessed.  If the stick is not legal, the appropriate penalty will be assessed.  Sticks must meet either NCAA or NFHS standards.
  11. 2025/2026 sticks must be between 37"-42"
  12. 2024 sticks must be between 37"- 54".
  13. No noise makers will be allowed at any field (horns, whistles, sirens, cowbells, etc.)  Offenders will be asked to leave the field.
  14. Any player, fan or coach ejected from a game will be prohibited from competing in/coaching/watching his/her teams's next game. If a player/coach/fan is ejected for a second time he/she will be disqualified from the tournament.
  15. Fighting is an automatic ejection from the game.
  16. Any team that forfeits a game during the tournament will be ineligible to advance to the playoffs.
  17. Forfeits will be considered a 4-2 victory for the team that is prepared to play.

Any playoff games that end in a tie will be decided by a sudden victory overtime period.

One referee at each game will hold the scorecard for the game.  At the end of each game the referee will record the official score and sign the scorecard.  An Aloha Tournaments representative will then pick up the scorecard and return it to the registration tent.  All scores and point totals will be recorded on the scoreboard in front of the registration tent.

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 tha 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 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. 

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

Weather Refund Policy

  1. No refunds will be issued for games cancelled for reasons other than weather. (forfeits, no shows, etc)
  2. No refunds will be issued for games shortened due to weather.
  3. If one game is canceled due to weather, there will be no refund.
  4. Middle School ( 2026, 2025, 2024, 2023, 2022, & 2021) - If a second game is canceled due to weather, the team will receive a $388 refund, and an additional $388 refund for each game canceled thereafter.

  6. No refunds will be issued for playoff or championship games canceled due to weather.
  7. 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.
