EVENT ELIGIBILITY:

PLEASE NOTE: This tournament is designed for the true baseball recreational All-Star team. League sanctioned All-Star teams, or league sanctioned Premier/Advanced Rec teams ONLY!

No club teams, or independent teams, or select teams allowed. No select players allowed, period! This includes players who have been actively guest playing on a select roster (NCS, USSSA, Triple Crown, 24 Sports, PAC Sports, etc.) during the current season.

REGISTRATION PRIORITY: NEW THIS SUMMER

CBA & FMYSA desire to give priority in the registration process to other city league baseball associations that participate in DFW Interlock (www.dfwinterlock.com) and/or TEBA (www.dfwteba.com) (“Priority Associations”). In order to achieve this on the NCS registration platform, all teams will initially go on the waitlist and the tournament director will move teams from Waitlist to Confirmed status manually based on the following criteria:

  • Priority Association teams will have registration priority from May 6th - May 10th. On May 10th at 9am, registration will then be opened up to all other Recreational teams.
  • During the priority window, each Priority Association will be allowed 1 Premier team and 1 Rec All-Star team (this restriction does not apply to host city teams).
  • Before opening registration up to all other teams, the tournament director will move all additional Priority Association teams that are on the Waitlist to Confirmed status to the extent space is available.
  • Registration Fee must be paid within 24 hours of getting moved from the Waitlist to the Registered List.
