Please mail in ALL waivers at once.

CONFLICTS: Conflicts are accepted and there will be a $20 charge for any conflicts. If a conflict is submitted, there is no guarantee that the conflict will work within the schedule therefore your spot in the tournament is not secured until bracketing is completed. Conflicts will NOT be honored for Sunday's games. Only Saturday conflicts will be honored. The Great 48 will explore all avenues of scheduling before any team's conflict is not taken. It is very rare to not be able to work your conflict into the tournament.

SCHEDULING & REFUNDS: We will schedule tournaments on a first come first serve basis. Paying online via credit/debit card is a fast way of getting your team's payment in to the Great 48. REFUNDS: If your team does not get into a tournament due to lack of participation, you will be notified by Wednesday prior to the tournament and you will have the option of being refunded or moving to another future Great 48 tournament. If your team pulls out of a tournament for any reason after the schedule has been release you will have the option of choosing any future tournament.
