A team representative MUST check in at least one (1) hour before their first game. They must fill out a survey, give a cell number, and pick up bracket. Teams must have 2 copies of a signed WFC Roster. One will be turned in and the other will be signed and returned. Then the head coach must have the WFC signed roster along with copies of birth certificates & team insurance in the dugout throughout all WFC Spring World Series games played. Coaches remember failure to turn in a signed WFC roster can lead to disqualification. Judgment Calls cannot be protested. All protests are $300.00 cash per request. After a team turns in a WFC signed roster at check in, no players can be added. Example no player can be on a 14u team roster & play on that team then play on & be on another age group team roster in the same event. This will lead to both teams being disqualified. Brackets will be available at check in. Brackets will be seeded for this event so pool play games will be finish the inning but can end in a tie.
