Tournament team deposits and final payments are NON-REFUNDABLE.  There are no refunds or credits at any time.

Game play continues in the rain as long as the weather does not interfere with player safety. If there is thunder or lightning, all play is suspended for 30 minutes. Play may resume when the storm clears. The availability of shelter from rain varies by location.

If there is continuous heavy rain, facilities may close the fields. If fields are closed in advance of a tournament’s start time, an email and text alert will be sent to all registered players. An announcement will be posted on the homepage of the tournament website.

Each tournament is divided into brackets based on level of play. Team coaches are asked in advance of the tournament to rank their team’s performance level. This ranking is then used to determine the game day schedules.

Tournament schedules are posted as far in advance as possible. At the latest, a tournament schedule will be posted the week of the tournament.

A field map will be located on each tournament’s website that will have directions and specific locations of each field. Once at the field location, fields are marked with large blue and orange flags.

Many facilities have strict policies regarding allowing animals on the property. It is best to contact the facility directly to obtain the most up-to-date guidelines.

T3 Lacrosse contracts with certified medical trainers for every tournament. The trainer tent is located near the T3 event headquarters tent and is connected to field staff via radio. Trainers are provided access to golf carts to allow for a quick response to any medical emergency.

Yes, T3 encourages teams to bring tents and make the most of the tournament experience.

Each tournament is different and may be played on a different surface. Therefore, parents and athletes should lookup tournament information on the website to see what type of surface the game will be played on.

At Manahasset Creek Park, there will be a T3 headquarters tent. Next to the main T3 tent, we will have another area specifically for 28 Days donations. The area will be divided so that each T3 elite team will know exactly where to put their donations and then all tournament participants will have their own area as well.

It is up to the team if they still want to compete in the T3 Elite competition to collect the most donations. If the team does want to participate, your daughter can bring her donations to practice the week before and give them to the head coach and the final collection will be at the last practice before the weekend. If the does not want to compete, individually your daughter can bring a donation and give it to their head coach who will then give the donation to one of our T3 directors.
