COACHES & DIRECTORS EXPECTATIONS

As a Coach/Director, I understand that:

  • All of my players must be registered/paid prior to stepping foot on the field.  Any player not registered/paid will not be permitted to play.
  • Eligibility requirements, at all levels of the game, must be followed.  Rules and requirements such as age, previous level of participation, and team transfers, have been established to encourage and maximize participation, fair play and to promote safety.  Adrenaline Tournament Rules can be found on each event page.
  • I should always demonstrate positive behavior and reinforce these traits to players, parents, officials and spectators.  Players should be encouraged by coaches to demonstrate positive behavior and respect for teammates, opponents, officials and spectators.
  • Spectators will be informed that positive behavior is required at all events and they should not get involved in any on field disputes.
  • My first priority is the health and safety of the players assigned to my team.
  • Grievances or misunderstandings between coaches, officials or any other parties involved with the sport should be communicated through the proper channels, never on the field of play or in view of spectators or participants.  All field tents have the ability to communicate with the Tournament Director or Main Information Tent.
  • The use of profanity or vulgar language is unacceptable.
  • The value of good sportsmanship, the concepts of fair play, and the skills of the game should always be placed above winning.

Additional Insurance

REGISTRATION SAVER

Adrenaline is pleased to announce we are offering parents a solution to our “No Refund” policy as it relates to event fees.  We are highly recommending that you purchase this new AIG policy called “Registration Saver”.  You may still purchase even though you have already registered.

The policy helps protect parent’s investment in non-refundable event fees and related travel cost if the event is cancelled due to inclement weather or your player suffers an injury or illness either on or off the field prior to the event.  It also covers many other unforeseen circumstances, which might prevent a player from participating. 

 Here are some key reasons why we wanted to make parents aware of the “Registration Saver”:

  • Adrenaline has a “NO” Refund Policy
  • Injuries & Illness Occurs
  • Event Cancellation Due to Inclement Weather
  • Non-Refundable Travel Costs Are Covered
  • Affordable Coverage at 6% of Event & Travel Costs

***Note: The policy must be purchased 15 or more days prior to the start of the event. The premium is very affordable and calculated based on 6% of the event and travel related expenses.

If you purchase a policy and an injury, illness or other unforeseen event should happen to your player before the tournament start date, the policy kicks in to reimburse your costs. 

How to Buy:  Please visit the website: www.registrationsaver.com to review the coverage.  To complete the simple application, click on “Apply Now” and select the “Tournament & Camps”.   You can purchase a policy for just the event registration fee or if you wish to include your travel, simply fill in the related travel expenses in the fields provided and your premium will be calculated for you. If parents and family members are traveling also, you can purchase the travel for the whole family! We highly recommend purchasing ASAP!

POLICIES

ADRENALINE POLICIES

REFUNDS

  • Adrenaline has a strict “no refunds” policy for all events and clubs.  We will provide a 100% credit to any team or player that has registered and paid for an event that is cancelled due to COVID-19.
  • To protect your registration fee’s in the event you suffer an injury either on the field or off, illness or cancellation due to inclement weather, we encourage you to purchase the new AIG insurance policy called “Registration Saver.”
  • The policy covers your registration fee investment for a camp/tournament or a club season.  If you have already registered, you can still get coverage.  Camp/tournament coverage MUST be purchased at least 14 days in advance of the start date.  Club season coverage can be purchased at any time.
  • If something should happen to your player after the season/tournament start date, the policy will refund your fees pro-rata, based on the duration of the season/tournament or when the player has to stop participating.
  • The premium cost is 6% of camp/tournament fees or 7% of club season fees and will give you relief from Adrenaline’s strict No Refunds policy.
  • To review the coverage and complete the simple application, go to www.registrationsaver.com.  Click on “Apply Now” and select the “Season”/”Camp-Tournament” policy to sign up.
  • AIG can be reached at 866-690-6859 and is available 24/7.

WEATHER

The safety of our players, coaches, referees, fans and staff comes first.  In the event of adverse weather or unplayable field conditions, Adrenaline reserves the right to:

  • Cancel games partially or entirely
  • Reduce game times, eliminate halftime or shorten time between games
  • Finish games before inclement weather arrives
  • Reschedule and/or relocate games
  • Convert a tournament to a “festival” format without a playoffs or championship

If there is a lightning strike within 6 miles of the facility, play will be suspended immediately and will not resume until 30 minutes after the last lighting strike within 6 miles of the facility.  If a game stoppage occurs in the second half of a game, that game will be considered final and the score at that time will be recorded as final.  If a game stoppage occurs in the first half, when play resumes it will be the start of the second half.

We will make every attempt to play every minute of every game but our ability to do this is dependent on field availability and lighting.   We will post schedule delays, changes and cancellations on Tourney Machine and on the event web page.  Additionally we will email all registered club directors, coaches and players via LeagueApps.  Weather conditions can change rapidly and all teams MUST be prepared to play as soon as the weather clears and fields are playable or risk forfeiting a game.

Facility management often has the final say on weather and field condition delays and cancellations.

FREE AGENTS

  • Players interested in participating in an event but are not on a team MUST register as a Free Agent on our website and pay the $1 fee.
  • Player information will be circulated to all attending coaches/directors.
  • If a team needs an additional player, they will contact the Free Agent directly.
  • If a Free Agent is picked up by a team they will be charged the Free Agent fee by Adrenaline for that event.
  • There is no guarantee that registered Free Agents will be picked up by a team for any event.
