    FAQ regarding Team registration and pairing


    Don't have a Team?
    You can still play. Just register as an individual and we will help you find a team by:
    1. Posting your name in the entries as someone looking for a team so teams may contact you through us. Please note that we will share your contact information with registered teams only.
    2. Posting teams who are looking players and forwarding your information upon your request.

    Please understand that due to large interest in this tournament, our priority is to help players and team who have registered to find teams. So please, register and we will help you!
    In the past, all players who have registered have always found a team to play. Sometimes, they have to wait until the day of the tournament and we help recruit players onsite among parents and coaches of registered players. Nevertheless, they have always found a team.

    How to register multiple members in one team?
    When you select the team registration, using one of the team member's user ID and password, please indicate the other three player's names, and USCF IDs in the Additional Notes section that is right below the section list. Alternatively, you can email us the players' names on your team.
