Madlax has set up a convenient "Stay & Play" policy for all Madlax Tournaments. Each team registering for events must make their hotel reservations at one of the hotels on our HOTEL BOOKING website linked above in order to play. You must stay at one of these approved hotels.
The reasons for implementing the "Stay & Play" policy are to simply lock the best rates possible for you as traveling guests. Also, Madlax is able to prove to the host towns we have a positive impact on their local economy and thus build stronger relationships and gain access to priority venues. MORE HOTEL ROOMS mean better RATES and even better tournaments for you!
So, thanks for staying in one of our Madlax Approved Hotels. Please let us know if you have any questions, firstname.lastname@example.org

Playing Time and Substitution Policy and Coaching
Each team is assigned three college coaches for all games all day long. Every attempt will be made to play all players evenly as this is a pure showcase. There will most likely be a set EMO and MDD team which will allow those players more PT but that is the only variance. We will run middies 'hockey style' which means one after the other. There are no set lines. It will likely change game to game.
There are no refunds after your paid registration for any reasons except the following situations. If you are severely injured prior to the event we will offer a partial refund of $150 if we receive an email by 11/13/20 and we can get you a replacement player. If you commit to college prior to the event we still want you to play. If you absolutely do not wish to play as a committed player please email us and if we can replace you we will refund you $150. Again, in all circumstances, if we can't get a replacement player for your position then there will be no refund.
Saturday's Showcase Schedule will be posted the week of the event.
East Coast 2019 Fall Showcase Rosters & Jersey Assignments will be posted the week of the event,
