Tournament Frequently Asked Questions

 
When is the tournament?
  The tournament will take place on Sunday, May 17, 2020.
   
Where is the tournament?
  The tournament will take place on the playing fields of Amherst Regional High School.
   
Who is allowed to play in the tournament?
  This is a tournament for Middle School teams. No players beyond 8th grade may play in the tournament. Both coed and single-gender teams are OK. Our preference is for single-school teams, but composite teams may be accepted with the permission of the TD.
   
Is this tournament appropriate for my team ?
  There will be teams at the tournament representing all levels of play, from brand-new teams with no experience to teams that play at a high level (for middle school). The tournament does not have a traditional 'championship' format - instead, your team will play three games against other teams that are at a similar level of experience and ability.
   
Who is in charge of the tournament?
  The director of the Amherst Middle School Invitational is Jim Pistrang (coach, Amherst Regional Middle School Ultimate). All decisions regarding eligibility, acceptance of bids, seeding, and rules will be made by Jim.
  A staff of adult volunteers will help supervise the tournament.
   
How do you decide which bids to accept?
  For the most part, teams will be accepted on a first-come-first-serve basis.
   
How much does it cost?
  The entry fee for the tournament is $140 per team.
   
Why does it cost more this year?
  This is our first increase since 2016. The cost of custodians, supplies, and field maintenance have all increased. This is still a great deal for your team!
   
What do we get for our money?
  We will provide water, a disc, and a Team Box for each team containing fruit and bagels. A trainer will be on-site for the entire day. We also need to pay for a custodian in order to keep the school bathrooms open.
   
Do we need an adult chaperone?
  Absolutely. You must have an adult chaperone if you want to play in the tournament, and the chaperone must be with your team for the entire time.
   
How many games will my team play?
  Visiting teams will play at least three games. One of your games may be against one of the Amherst Middle School intramural teams.
   
What is the format of the tournament?
  There is not a 'championship' format. Visiting teams will play against teams that are at about the same level in terms of age and experience.
