Emergency/Bad Weather Policy

Prince William County Schools has final say over all weather related delays and closings.  In the unlikely event that weather should cancel the use of the building and the event, refunds will be issued to teams that have paid prior to arrival.  Please allow 6 to 8 weeks for refunds to be mailed to your officially registered address.

In the event of a weather related delayed opening, the tournament will run but with a modified schedule.  We understand that teams may not be able to alter their travel plans.  Unfortunately, no refunds will be issued for no shows to a delayed start event.  We will do all that is humanly possible to run a tournament with enough qualifying matches and a full elimination round and provide judging for awarded trophies.

Refund and Payment Policies

If the Event Partner cancels the event: 

  • In the unlikely event that weather should cancel the use of the building and the event, refunds will be issued to teams that have paid prior to arrival minus the $5 RECF adminstrative fees.  Due to the nature of school accounting, the refunds may take 6 to 8 weeks to process.

If a Coach/Mentor completes registration for the event then chooses to withdraw or not attend:

  • There will be no refund for a cancelling team unless another team is able to take the open spot. 

All teams will have to submit payment or have made arrangements by Jan 20, 2024.  If not paid for by that date, your team will be moved to the wait list to make room for other teams.  Please contact us in case you are having an issue with payment.

Health and Safety Policies

Please visit the CDC website for the latest COVID-19 information.  

If the protocol for this event changes, all teams will be notified.
