FAQ's

Before you call, email or message us a question, please make sure and read through the FAQ's as most common questions are addressed in the section below!

Below are the different divisions we offer for many of our styles along with who is expected to participate in each. You may only play in ONE of the PRO/Elite/Comp/Rec/Novice/Amateur divisions per style, but may also play in an O35 division.

PRO

The top division with teams who are used to competing at the National and International level, featuring top cash prizes and the best athletes in the world.

COMPETITIVE

This division is for teams who may be top teams in their area and very experienced with top athletes, but no National experience or missing some key contributors to make a PRO run.

RECREATIONAL

This division is for teams who are possibly experienced and still competitive, but newer as a team or lacking the top athletes to push the top divisions.

AMATEUR

This division is for teams who are brand new to tournaments or not typically competitive but still wanting an opportunity to participate at the lowest level.

O35

Our division for players 35 years of age or older. Age cutoff is January 19, 2024, so if you will not 35 by that day you are not eligible to play in this division. All players MUST have a valid ID on them throughout the event to verify age in the event of a protest.

AIRPORTS: The closest and largest airport we recommend booking through is DFW, which is about 20 minutes from the facility. You may also book through Love Field, especially if you’re flying Southwest, which is about 35 minutes from the field.

Each division does have a maximum amount of teams that can be accepted and divisions do fill up quickly! We expect each one to sell out. So it is important that you register your team early and pay in full by the deadline to guarantee your place! You can see how many spots are left by going to the team list page HERE.

Zoom Drafts will be held the week leading into the tournament. Date and time is TBD.
