Application Procedures​

Teams applying to CYSA-sanctioned tournaments should now submit their application and fees directly to the desired tournament. Applications no longer need to be submitted to your District II Tournament Director for processing.
 
Teams are allowed to apply to only ONE tournament per weekend, whether it is a CYSA, Out-of-State, or International tournament. You cannot apply to multiple tournaments on the same weekend, and wait to see which one(s) accept your team before deciding which to attend.
 
You may only apply to another tournament for a given weekend after being rejected from your original choice for that weekend. Teams found to have violated this policy will face severe penalties from CYSA-N.
 
Teams withdrawing from a tournament should also be aware that they may forfeit their application fee upon withdrawal. Please check with each tournament regarding the refund policies. In addition to forfeiting your application fee, teams withdrawing from a tournament less than 14 days before the start of play may be fined by a tournament up to $300 for a late withdrawal. 

If you have any questions, please direct them to your District II Tournament Director:

Submitting a New Application When Rejected From a Tournament

Acceptance and rejection notices for applications received by the tournament before the application deadline will be mailed within seven days of the application deadline date. If you are rejected from a tournament and are reapplying to another one on the same weekend, you must send a copy of the rejection letter along with the second application. Failure to do this will result in a delay in the processing of the second application.
 

Withdrawal Procedure​

A team wishing to withdraw from a tournament must do so in writing. The withdrawal request must be sent to the tournament director no later than 14 days prior to the start of the tournament. The withdrawing team must be able to provide written confirmation of its withdrawal request that includes acknowledgement from the tournament director. If you have withdrawn from a tournament and are reapplying to another one on the same weekend, you must send a copy of the written withdrawal request and the acknowledgement of the tournament along with the second application. Failure to do this will result in a delay in processing of the second application.
