Each tournament site will have a site lead assigned. Each site lead will be wearing a lanyard marked, "SITE LEAD." Any questions should be directed to the site lead first. Issues regarding referees should also be directed to the site lead who will contact the referee coordinator. Please remember, we will not process any game protests. All game matters will be handled by the referees during the game.
If you can't locate a site lead any staff member can also provide assistance. They will be wearing Blaine spirit wear and will be wearing a lanyard marked, "STAFF."
If questions arise during the tournament that cannot be handled by the site lead or the staff you can contact one of the following individuals via cell or text:
Our volunteers will be operating all score clocks. We are striving to have all score keeping covered by our volunteers as well. However, we may ask home teams to provide a score keeper. Home team is first (or top) team listed.
Home team is first (or top) team listed – home team wears dark uniform, and will provide game ball and score keeper (if required)
