Tournament Conflict Question: My team has a conflict on our tournament date! What can we do? Contact Pamela Schroeder at, explain your challenge, and we will try to move you to a different tournament. This option is ONLY for unresolvable schedule challenges.

In case of inclement weather: We always plan to hold our scheduled tournaments as it is difficult to reschedule them. In the event of storms, please contact Pamela Schroeder at 763-550-7212 to hear a message about any cancellations or changes. Our first priority is safety! If you don’t feel able to make it to a tournament in the event of dangerous weather conditions, contact Pamela.
