We are limiting the number of teams at each age group to 9 total teams including teams from the Vernon Hills travel program. For registrations to be considered complete, payment must be turned in within 7 days of registration. Registrations and payment will be processed based on the order in which online registrations are completed. If we receive more interest than the 9 spots available at a particular age group, we will start a wait list.

NOTE: This tournament is open to community & club based first tier travel programs (i.e. "A-Teams") or towns sharing the same high school that play in a community based "A" league or below. No elite teams and/or tournament only teams will be allowed, YOU MUST PLAY IN A LEAGUE (i.e., LSFBL, MSBL, WSBL, KCBL, & etc.). If you sign up as an “A-Team” and decide to play in an elite or tournament only league after you sign up, it is your responsibility to contact VHTournament@vhcbs.com in order to receive a refund minus the admin fee.
