Tournaments are an excellent opportunity for teams to test themselves against out of state competition and in state competition they would not normally face during their teams league play. Tournaments also afford the opportunity for a team to bond and spend needed social time together. Teams are expected to participate in the main two club tournaments to help promote club unity, camaraderie, and the opportunity for club players, parents and coaches from various teams the chance to get to know each other better. There will also be some other clubs that TSC Hurricane has established a relationship with where we will highly encourage teams to participate in their events. Those will be communicated to all teams.
For all US Club registered teams, there is NO need for travel permission.
A team representative (manager or coach) usually need to attend a team registration session the evening before a tournament. The representative must present an official roster, player pass cards, medical release forms.

Coaches that take more than one team to the same event , the teams should SPLIT the cost of the per diem.
Teams are not required to pay airfare for a coach if the team travels 6 hours or less each way. (Guideline is Memphis or St. Louis team is not required to pay airfare.) However, if travel time is greater than 6 hours then team is expected to budget for coach’s airfare. By the same token, teams should give consideration to a coach’s schedule, etc. and the cost of the airline ticket. For example, it is reasonable and customary to pay for a coach airline ticket to St. Louis if the airline fee is value priced. Car rentals are also a reasonable expense that should be subsidized by the team when coaches are flying and there are logistical reasons for the coach to need transportation.
