Registration for the 2023 Not So Hard On Your Body Tournament is now open!
We can accommodate a total of 8 teams. There will be a two-team waitlist after the available spots are taken. Only one team may be reserved per person, and reservations are non-transferable.
To register your team visit www.uwhportal.com, sign in, and then navigate to the event page. Click on "Register a team" and follow the prompts. You only need to provide a team name in order to initially create your team (it can be edited later). The other team information can also be added/edited later.
Once you have created your team, your players can request to be added to your team, or you can invite them to your roster. Please send any questions regarding team creation and roster building to email@example.com.
Once you have registered your team on www.uwhportal.com, please send in your deposit within one week. This non-refundable* deposit secures your team's spot and will count towards your team's entry fee. If your deposit is not received within one week, your team will be removed from the team list and will need to reapply (space allowing).
If you are confident in your team's attendance, you may send the entire entry fee all at once. If you need to withdraw after this point, your entry fee will be returned minus the deposit and any transfer fees.
*Waitlisted teams that do not end up getting a spot will have their deposit refunded.
Any registered teams that have not paid in full by the team payment deadline will be moved to the end of the waitlist (and their entry fees will increase by $50). We will then start offering spots to teams at the front of the waitlist for the original team entry fee. These waitlisted teams will be notified and have one week to pay in full or be moved to the back of the waitlist (and also have their entry fees increased by $50). We will continue in this manner until all spots are paid for, or no more teams are interested.
While we will have a Dedicated Referee in the water and as Chief for every game, there will not be a referee opt-out for this tournament, and so there is no opt-out fee. Please be prepared to provide one water ref after each game.
