Check the Legacy Sports Park website for all qualifying tournaments and additional information. This event is open to any team in any sanctioning organization; it is open to any level of team. There are a limited number of spots available in this event for American teams in each age group. Teams will be chosen based on limited number of teams from all regions in America, when they qualify, how many points they have earned in qualifying, and when entry payment is received. Teams must be a team that played during the year and played in a State level event with an official roster to be eligible for this tournament.
The tournament will be a 6+ game guarantee with pool games (we want to play as many as time will allow) leading to a double elimination bracket. Final format will be posted before the final date to register for this event. Legacy is working with some of the best tournament directors from around America to ensure this is a true Best of the Best tournament. To earn a berth to this event, you must win a tournament at Legacy Sports Park, win a tournament in a sanctioned tournament (by Legacy Sports) or earn enough points by playing in these qualifying events (sanctioned by Legacy Sports). To see if a tournament is Sanctioned by legacy Sports and track your points you only have to look at www.legacysportspark.com . If it is not on this site it is not a real qualifier.
