This is the annual tournament hosted at Olive Knolls Christian School in Bakersfield, CA. We have a large and spacious facility that easily holds our tournament. Spectators will enjoy our large foyer with elevated viewing area. We will have two competition fields, a practice field, and a skills field. We are asking that at least one team member stays to help reset the field of play after each match.
Food, drinks, and snacks will be available to purchase at the tournament. As this is a quick moving event, we recommend that your team plan to stay on site for the day.
Teams that have not checked in 45 minutes prior to the beginning of the qualifying matches will be dropped from the roster so that the match list may be run. Teams that are running late must contact the event partner prior to this cut off if they do not wish to be dropped.
