First off, a big thank you for choosing to play with Agape Hoops this weekend. We know there are many choices on where to play each weekend and it is our goal to do everything in our power to make this a memorable experience for your team.
All of our tournaments will be USSSA sanctioned and we require that team be sanctioned with USSSA by going to www.usssa.com. We will also need ALL teams to have their rosters online prior to playing in the event. It will be your responsibility to have your roster online with the correct players playing that weekend. Any teams that do not have their roster online will be asked to hand deliver a paper roster each weekend. In addition, the USSSA online system cannot award any USSSA points to your team for their placing in the event without that roster online. Once your roster is posted online, the system will retroactively award the points from previous events.
At each gym there will be a designated spot to check in and you will be notified prior to playing where that check in will be. We will need all teams to make sure they have paid us prior to playing your first game. We can’t reiterate how important it is to have a team representative check in prior to playing. Please CLICK HERE to get our tournament rules for this tournament.
The staff at Agape Hoops wants to make sure your experience with us is dedicated to putting the players first in everything that we do. It is our goal to provide everyone with an atmosphere that is conducive to youth athletics. This includes good sportsmanship by coaches, fans, and players and will not tolerate anything different. For more information, visit our page on Competition with Civility.
For 2012 and beyond, we are requiring that all rosters be online at www.usssa.com. When you check-in, you will be asked to verify your roster from this online version. If your roster has not been placed online, you will be required to submit a roster before play begins. If this is the case, please download this printable roster and bring it with you to the event.
Players are allowed to be on only one roster per grade. Example: 7th Grade player can play 7th Grade (one team) and 8th Grade (one team); A player may not be on teams in separate divisions of the same grade (6th Grade Division I and 6th Grade Division II).
For our tournaments Agape Hoops will charge a gate fee at the door. The daily fee will be as follows:
- Adults $7 per person
- Seniors (65+) $5 per person
- Youth (High School & Under) Free
- State, National, and Specialty Tournaments could be more
Each team will receive 2 free admissions for their coaching staff. This will either be provided as a physical pass (if used will be required to be shown for entry) or a daily sign-in.
Change of Venue Notification
There may be occasions, such as, but not limited to, inclement weather, facility setbacks, scheduling problems not the fault of Agape Hoops, and other acts of nature, that require Agape Hoops to reschedule tournament games to other nearby venues. Agape policy is to play all tournaments despite such unfortunate setbacks. Agape Hoops will do everything in its power to notify you well in advance of such re-scheduling. Upon receiving such notification of rescheduled games at nearby parks, your team may withdraw from the scheduled tournament, but you must do so prior to 72 hours of the first scheduled game. If you fail to withdraw from the tournament prior to the 72 hour period, your team will not be entitled to a refund or any other remedy.
