This Agreement and each of its terms are the product of an arms' length negotiation between the Parties. In the event any ambiguity is found to exist in the interpretation of this Agreement, or any of its provisions, the Parties, and each of them, explicitly reject the application of any legal or equitable rule of interpretation which would lead to a construction either "for" or "against" a particular party based upon their status as the drafter of a specific term, language, or provision giving rise to such ambiguity.


The invalidity or unenforceability of any provision of this Agreement, whether standing alone or as applied to a particular occurrence or circumstance, shall not affect the validity or enforceability of any other provision of this Agreement or of any other applications of such provision, as the case may be, and such invalid or unenforceable provision shall be deemed not to be a part of this Agreement.

The parties will attempt to resolve any dispute arising out of or relating to this Agreement through friendly negotiations amongst the parties. If the matter is not resolved by negotiation, the parties will resolve the dispute using the below Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) procedure.

Any controversies or disputes arising out of or relating to this Agreement will be submitted to mediation in accordance with any statutory rules of mediation. If mediation is not successful in resolving the entire dispute or is unavailable, any outstanding issues will be submitted to final and binding arbitration under the rules of the American Arbitration Association. The arbitrator's award will be final, and judgment may be entered upon it by any court having proper jurisdiction.


In general - there are no refunds once teams are built and gear is ordered.

It is the intent of Middle School Matchup LLC to play each tournament to its final conclusion. We may modify the tournament in order to reach a conclusion.. Modification may include, but not limited to, reducing the total number of games, an alternate seeding method if pool play did not finish, reduce time limits, playing a partial bracket and awarding final placing from the highest seeds remaining, etc.

However, due to circumstance beyond our control, either man-made or act of God, a tournament may have to be shortened, postponed or cancelled.

Before any tournament is officially cancelled every opportunity will be made to reschedule or resume play at the first opportunity, as dictated by management, local government, local league play and/or sanctioning body. We will post all tournament updates on our website and facebook, including any cancellation or modifications.

Bad Weather
Our tournament director is excellent and we will do our best to make games up during the week or find another weekend to play. With our unique format we do things a bit different than other normal tournaments. Other tournaments do not have to order shirts or custom awards so early. Because of this, if by chance we can’t get this tournament to play there are no bad weather refunds. Again, we will do EVERYTHING we can to get this tournament or portions completed.

Player Dropping

Once teams are made and uniforms are ordered there will be no refunds. Because of our unique format, when a player drops it can really create a domino affect on a whole division. Especially when dealing with mixed teams. We may work with you on a case by case basis to see if we can grab someone off a waitlist etc, but our general policy is no refund after registration is closed.
