2018 TOURNAMENT SCHEDULE BELOW FOR REFERENCE ONLY!
For Travel Purposes: teams playing on Friday should be prepared to play by 5pm. Games will start on Saturday at 8am on all fields. Games will end on Sunday by 4pm.
At Legends, our primary goal is to provide positive and memorable experiences through the events we offer. We reserve the right to make decisions concerning player and team eligibility, age limits, division placement, etc… as we see fit with a focus on maintaining competitive balance and providing for the best experience possible. If you have any questions about this please contact us and we are happy to speak further with you
In the event of adverse weather or unplayable field conditions, the Event Director reserves the right to:
• Reduce game times in order to catch up with schedule.
• Finish game before inclement weather arrives, or to preserve field conditions.
• Reschedule games, if possible.
• Convert tournament to a “Festival” format (reduction of minimum games number) without playoffs or championships to provide the majority of teams the opportunity to play as many games as possible.
Every attempt will be made to update cancellations on the website. However, the weather conditions can change rapidly and all teams should be prepared to play as soon as weather clears and fields are playable.
If lightning is observed at any location play will be suspended immediately. If it is the second half, the game will be considered final and the score at that point will be recorded. If it is the first half, when play resumes it will be the start of the second half. Every attempt will be made to begin subsequent games on time. If the start of the second half of the suspended game delays the onset of the subsequent game the following actions will occur:
• The game suspended will play one 20 minute running time second half
• Subsequent games will begin immediately after proceeding games (teams will warm up on the sideline prior to the game). These games will consist of two 20 minute running halves until games are back on schedule.
• Once games are back on schedule they will revert to two 25 minute running time periods.
We will make every attempt to play every minute of every game but the safety of players and all tournament attendees comes first.
No refunds will be granted if these actions are necessary after the start of the tournament.
Facility owners, not tournament organizers, have final say on whether the tournament will take place due to weather and field conditions.
In the event the tournament is cancelled prior to the start of the event, a partial refund may be issued. Final determination of refund amount will be on an event by event basis. All events have fixed expenses related to field rental & Facilities, set-up costs, insurance, personnel and other matters regardless of cancelation due to weather. Accordingly, no teams will receive full refunds of the registration fee if the tournament is canceled.
The Legends Best of the West is STAY TO PLAY! If teams and players are staying in a hotel, they MUST stay at a Legends approved hotel. Legends is continuing to work on getting great deals on hotels in the area and more hotel options to be added soon.
