2013 TOC POSTPONED TO 2-7-9, 2014.
THE 2013 TOC POSTPONED TO 2-7-9, 2014.
PLEASE READ BELOW ON ANY INFORMATION WE HAVE AT THIS TIME.
Coaches, Parents and Players,
As I believe we are all aware, the weather for this weekend’s NTSSA 2013 Academy Sports and Outdoors Tournament of Champions does not look positive. Currently the forecast calls for icy conditions with extreme cold temperatures. The tournament committee met and considered all the factors involved in playing the tournament this weekend. This was a very difficult decision and felt making this decision early so that plans can be adjusted would best serve the soccer community.
Based on the forecast for precipitation, but more importantly the extreme temperature, the committee feels that in the interest of the safety of all players, parents, coaches, referees and volunteers, that we must reschedule this event.
The 2013 Academy Sports and Outdoors Tournament of Champions will now be played February 7-9, 2014 at many of the same locations.
NTSSA would hope that all teams currently scheduled for the tournament will participate the weekend of February 7-9, 2014.
All teams will play with their fall 2013 roster and must abide by the freeze date for the original tournament.
We have set some dates below in the event a team is not able to attend and will need to withdraw.
Each coach/manager should meet with players of their team and make this determination as soon as possible so NTSSA can be aware of any changes that need to be made.
In the event you will not be able to participate, please notify NTSSA and your home association of your intent to withdraw by the dates below.
Any team withdrawing may be replaced by same gender age division by their home association.
January 1, 2014 – 100% Entry Fee and 100% Bond Fee Returned
January 15, 2014 – 50% Entry Fee and 100% Bond Fee Returned
After January 15, 2014- No refund of any fees
We know this is disappointing for many of the players and teams, but considering the travel many teams have planned and the for the spirit of the tournament for which it is intended, hopefully we can look forward to a fantastic NTSSA 2013 Academy Sports and Outdoors Tournament of Champions in February 2014!
I will be sending updates to the teams as more information is available.
