Registering for the CLUBWAKA Founders Cup Regional tourney is just like registering for a CLUBWAKA team.  Think of this as like a "one-day season".  If you are a captain, you'll create a friend group and then have your teammates register and select your team from the dropdown.  Other important notes:

  • You must have a minimum of 14 players registered.  However, if your team has serious ambitions to travel to Vegas for the Founder's Cup National Championship in October, make sure your roster has at least 16 players (to meet the minimum requirement for the Vegas tourney).  For more details on how your FC regional roster qualifies for the National Championship, click here (see Attachment B).
  • This tourney will be using the standard CLUBWAKA Game rules (11 in the field, 3 fouls, etc)
  • All teams will be guaranteed 3 pool play games.  The top 8 teams from pool play will advance to a single elimination tourney in the afternoon.  See below for the full tournament schedule.
  • The 4 Semifinalists will be eligible to receive an invitation to Founders Cup in Las Vegas (Saturday of Columbus Day weekend)
  • The champion will be guaranteed a Founders Cup invitation (to be offered in the next invite round following their victory), a trophy, and a $2400 CASH prize*!  Second place finisher will receive a $1200 CASH prize*!
    (*cash prizes based on an estimated 16 teams)
