Preregistration will be required in order to reduce direct contact with tournament officials, insure that players are not turned away from a venue due to overcrowding and to provide players an opportunity to register at an alternative location if their first choice is at capacity. 2. Players who have not preregistered will not be admitted to the venue unless a cancellation has been received by the tournament director. 3. A Registrar will be appointed each week by the State Tournament Director and his/her name shall be posted on the FSA Bulletin Board. Players/teams must register via email with the Registrar between 8:00 a.m. on the Friday before the tournament and 4:00 P.M. on the Sunday preceding a scheduled tournament. The name of both team members, the desired venue and a contact phone number must be included in the email. Registration will be on a first come, first served basis. 4. The Registrar shall maintain a list of all players/teams for each division of each tournament scheduled for the upcoming week. 5. Once capacity is reached in any division, the Registrar will notify the Webmaster who will publish that information on the website. The Registrar will also notify any players/teams who register after a division limit has been reached, giving them the opportunity to register for an alternate venue or to be put first onto the list for the next tournament. 6. The tournament directors assigned to each tournament must similarly notify the Registrar. 7. As soon as possible after the close of registration, the Registrar will email each director a list of all entries for their respective tournaments. 8. Districts shall decide if a registrar is required for their District tournaments. G. TOURNAMENT ARRIVAL 1.

Any player with a temperature exceeding 100 degrees or who displays symptoms of illness will not be admitted to the facility. 2. If the tournament is a team event, both team members must enter the facility at the same time. 3. Those players admitted to the facility for the first time will be provided with a registration form. 4. Spectators will not be admitted to the facility. However, individuals accompanying registered players may enter and remain on the premises but must sign a release form and be subject to all the rules set forth in this directive. 5. By signing the registration form, players also agree to abide by all special health regulations imposed by competent authority, including the host club.

There will be no exception to the mask policy even with a medical excuse. 6. Masks may be removed while eating or drinking, but appropriate distance must then be maintained. a. The CDC does not recommend the use of a face shield worn in lieu of a face mask and, as such, a face shield alone is not acceptable for F.S.A. events. 7. Anyone who fails to observe any special health rules or who displays obvious signs of illness once admitted will be disqualified from the tournament and be required to immediately leave the premises.
