No. The Governor's Cup is an Invitational Tournament. However, we rarely turn teams away. Every effort is made for ALL teams interested in playing to be accepted.
How soon will our team know that we have been accepted to participate in the tournament?
Once the registration deadline has passed, the tournament committee will begin notifying teams. The person listed on you registration form will be receiving information either by mail or by E-Mail.
Is it possible to register for the tournament after the entry deadline has passed?
Yes, BUT . . . we will only be accepting teams needed to complete age division pools. It is in your team's best interest to enter early to be considered. We request you please contact the Governor's Cup before sending in a LATE entry.
How do I contact the Governor's Cup?
You can contact Carrie Ogonowski, Executive Director by E-mail, by telephone at (785) 233-9700, or by fax (785) 233-0135.
What documents are needed to complete registration?
Your registration is considered complete if:
For KANSAS teams - your registration fee is paid and your rosters have been received.
For Out-of-State teams - your registration fee is paid, and your rosters and travel forms have been received.
How will I know if our team's registration is complete?
You can check the status of your registration by looking at the Registration Status report under Team Info.
Our team registered but is not showing up on the Registration Status report.
If you registered on-line, your team should be on the Registration Status report. If you registered a team on-line and do not see your team listed, please contact Carrie Ogonowski immediately. You will need to provide a copy of the entry form you printed at the time you registered. Teams that did not enter on-line will see their team listed on the Registration Status report once the Governor's Cup has received your entry form and keyed it into their data base.
Does a team representative need to be present at the coach's meeting?
No, BUT . . . last minute information will be given to the teams at that meeting. This is especially important if bad weather is threatening or if changes in schedules are necessary. It is in your team's best interest to have someone attend.
What happens in the event there is bad weather during the tournament?
It's hard to say what actions will be taken. It all depends on how severe the weather is or has been. The Governor's Cup has a Weather Info page that will be updated as changes in playing status occur to let you know of any game delays or cancellations.
When will we know what our team's game times?
The Governor's Cup will begin pooling and scheduling teams as soon as registrations are complete and age divisions are determined. Schedules will be mailed, E-mailed, or available on-line, Schedules, as soon as possible. To help with this process, please register early, let the tournament committee know of ALL conflicts (on your registration form), and please try not to make changes after the registration deadline has passed.
I need to make a change to our registration form to let you know of a conflict.
You can contact Carrie Ogonowski, Executive Director by E-mail, by telephone at (785) 233-9700, or by fax (785) 233-0135. As you may know, the Governor's Cup will make every attempt to resolve conflicts your team may have, BUT . . . sometimes requests are unable to be resolved for numerous reasons. We hope you understand that your changes may cause conflicts for others. That's why it's extremely important to register early, let the tournament committee know of ALL conflicts (on your registration form), and please try not to make changes after the registration deadline has passed. We appreciate you cooperation!
