Weather Policy

In the event of adverse weather or unplayable field conditions, the Tournament Director reserves the right to:

  • Reduce game times in order to catch up with the schedule
  • Finish games before inclement weather arrives
  • Reschedule games, if possible
  • Convert tournament format as needed to provide the opportunity for teams to play as many games as possible
  • Every attempt will be made to complete a fully scheduled event

We will make every attempt to play every minute of every game but the safety of players and all tournament attendees comes first.

No refunds will be granted if these actions are necessary after the start of the tournament.


If lightning is observed at any location play will be suspended immediately following US Lacrosse Lightning Policy. Any lightning within 6 miles of fields will result in suspension of play, and all participants and spectators will be required to find safe shelter. Play will resume in 30 minutes assuming no additional lightning strikes occur within 6 miles. Any further lightning strikes within 6 miles will reset the 30 minute clock. Tournament Director reserves the right to adjust schedule based on the delay (ex: game suspended in 1st half may resume at start of 2nd half, games suspended in 2nd half may be considered completed)


This event is not a stay-to-play event. It will be the team's or families' responsibility to make any needed travel arrangements.

Free Agent Policy


Players interested in participating in an event but are not on a team MUST register as a Free Agent using Emerald City Cup Free Agent Form.

Once a player registers as a Free Agent, their contact information will be shared to attending coaches/directors.

If a team needs players for their team, the coach/director will contact the Free Agent directly.
