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 up to 4 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 Policy

In the unlikely event that weather or COVID protocols should cancel the use of the building and the event, refunds will be issued to teams that have paid prior to arrival. 

If inperson event is not permitted, teams would be offered a virtual option for Skills at a min cost.

Otherwise, there will be no refund for a cancelling team unless another team is able to take the open spot. 

Health and Safety Policies

This is a ever changing environment.  We will continue to follow the mandate by the host school district.  At this time, all team members, visitors and volunteers will be required to wear a mask while in the building.
