All weather related announcements will be made through our twitter account @OnTurfSports. Please Note: The City of Columbia City has an ordinance that if a severe storm warning is issued for the area the park must be evacuated. The Columbia City police or fire department will notify us of this situation. This is a City enforced policy.

OnTurf Sports may adjust the format and location of the event based on weather conditions.

In order to provide each team fair play and an opponent, the schedule is final after it is posted to the website. A team that drops from the event after the schedule is final will forfeit all entry fees. There will be no exception to this policy. A $100 cancellation fee applies within 2 weeks before the first game if the schedule has not been released unless the tournament is full and closed. No refund of payment will be issued after the tournament has closed.
Cancellations due to weather or other issues will be refunded as described below:
Based on 3 or 4 game format
  • No Games Played 100% refund

  • 1 Game Played 50% refund

  • 2 Games Played No refund

Cancellations will be determined by the Event Director. If a team forfeits prior to the event being cancelled, no refund will be issued.

Tournament schedules are released no later than the Tuesday before the event. The individual that registered the team for the tournament will receive an email letting them know that the schedule is available. Online schedules will be available from the tournament listing. Tournament game results will be updated to the game schedule as quickly as possible during the tournament.

A 3 or 4 game format is the number of games a team should expect to play as long as the weather permits the full game schedule to be played. In the case of weather issues, the number of games may be changed to determine a tournament winner.

Tournament payments are required to be received by OnTurf Sports three weeks before the tournament (Check or Credit Card). Within two weeks of the tournament, online payment through PayPal will be required to allow the schedule to be completed for all the teams. No PayPal account is required to use PayPal. When a tournament becomes full and closed, payment will be requested at that time. No refunds of payments will be issued after tournament has closed.
