3. Captain's Meeting
Captain's Meeting will be held at 8:00am on Saturday morning at Tournament HQ (Pavilion between J2 and K1 on north side of Lot D). If your team has a first round bye and you are unable to send a representative, please come check in at Tournament HQ to get your team packet upon arrival.
4. Coach's Showcase Game & Pizza
We will have our annual Coach's showcase on Saturday at 5:00pm (field still being finalized, but near HQ). We encourage all coaches to bring their cleats and participate! Each team will receive a ticket for 3 pizzas in the morning (at the Captain's Meeting) and teams are encouraged to stay to watch (and heckle) their respective coaches.
Coaches! Make sure to bring your cleats for the game!
Well... we are no longer at Maple Plain, so there isn't much to this one thankfully! Lot D and Lot E are both fair game. Please drive slowly and be courteous.
6. Field Food/Water
Per usual, we will have bagels and bananas available at HQ both mornings. We will be helping save the earth by using refillable 5 gallon jugs at the fields this weekend. We will have water stations set up at various locations throughout the fields.
Please remind your players to bring nalgenes/water bottles to reuse throughout the weekend!
