 TEAM REGISTRATION

For a team to compete at a USQ regional championship, it must be registered for the tournament at least 3 weeks prior to the event. All season play requirements must be met at least 2 weeks prior to the event.

Team registration for the regional championship is a six-step process. Teams must be official USQ teams before registering for the regional championship.

As with previous seasons, a spreadsheet with all teams’ current registration status is available here. It also tracks progress towards bid allocation registration requirements.

While all officials must hold the minimum certification level required for their role, teams are discouraged from listing certified head referees in the SR and AR spots. Individuals listed on a team's ref crew must be certified by the registration deadline.
  6. Complete pre-regional championship season requirements. For these requirements to count all games must have scores submitted to USQ by the deadline listed above.

    3. To see more information on this policy, click here.

Teams must also complete the requirements listed here to be eligible to compete officially in all events, not just USQ hosted regional and national championships. This includes the new team snitch runner requirement, which is due by the same deadline as membership team referee requirements.

HOTEL ACCOMMODATIONS

Please do not contact the hotels directly to book. Booking will open on Wednesday, September 19 at 5 pm ET and the forms are available above. At that time, teams will be asked to fill out a ranking their top choices for accommodations out of the options available, how many rooms they need, how many players they need to house, and how many nights they will be staying. USQ staff will assign teams to hotels on a first come, first serve basis. Once a team has been assigned a hotel, they will be given booking instructions. Please note that hotels may have additional deadlines that teams may need to adhere to. Those deadlines will be communicated by the hotels to the teams during the booking process.

Player Check in and Captains’ Meetings

Player check-in will happen at select hotels on Friday evening.

Any players, coaches, or non-playing staff that do not check in on Friday evening must check in on Saturday morning. Any player who has not yet checked in will not be permitted to enter the fields, nor will they be permitted to play in any games until they have completed the registration process. Players who violate this policy are at risk of disqualifying their entire team from the event.

Captains’ meetings will be held at the the same hotels as player check-in. Each meeting will be between USQ event staff and the captains. It is mandatory that captains attend one of the meetings. If no representative from your team will be able to attend any of these meeting times, please let us know in advance via email at events@usquidditch.org. During this meeting, USQ event staff will provide an overview of the event, describe tournament-specific policies, and answer questions. Each team is required to send at least one (and no more than three) representative(s) to the meeting.
