For questions or more info on Registration/Check-in, contact AshleyM.Smackfest@gmail.com.
REGISTRATION– Registration is individual by person this year. Each player must sign up online. Team Captains: enter your team name, personal information, and friends you want on your court during the registration process. The waiver is built into registration this year. Please lock your team with a password and distribute the password to other team members so that they can sign up for your team. All other players: please purchase an additional player ticket for $25. Enter in the password created by your Team Captain to sign up for your team. Each team must have 4 players in order to be confirmed.
Team Info? The registration process has changed to RedPodium. RedPodium is completely self-service. All information, including court requests, will be collected during Team Captain registration. You will be prompted to set up an online account where you can edit your information. No edits can be made after Sunday, June 11th.
What are the details for the Pro Division? This year we will have $3000 in cash and prizes for the Pro Division. We’ll take a max of 10 teams, who must have at least 1 girl on their team. We’ll have 2 pools with 5 teams each. Top 2 teams in each pool will advance to the semis and then the finals. We’ll have official refs for games, and prize money is as follows: 1st – $1500 cash + $500 prizes. 2nd – $500 + $500 prizes, plus prizes for 3rd.
Can I request to be on a court with another team?
You may request playing in a pool with friends – While we cannot guarantee it, we do our best to make sure it happens. However you must request the names of Team Captains only, since we only have contact info for the people who actually paid for a team. If however your friend signed up early, like on May 15th, and you signed up on May 20 (we expect to be close to sold out), it may be tough to get you together unless we put you on an outer court.
When will my court assignment be posted? Court assignments will be posted on www.smackfestevents.com on Friday, June 16th.
How was my court assignment determined? Assignments were done based on the date in which the team captain registered. The earlier you registered, the higher the priority your team was given.
What will come in my team goody bag? Your team goody bag will include all kinds of freebies from our sponsors. Each bag will have “water bottles”, wristbands which will get you VIP entry at Sharkeez as well as the post party at the Deck, t’s, hats, and lots more from our wonderful sponsors (for the exact amount of people who paid). Also a pitcher coupon for Mich Ultra at Sharkeez.
Do I get a hat or a tee? The first 50 teams to sign up will get a hat AND a tee!! Everyone else will get a Smackfest triblend tee.
What time is check-in and where? Check-in has changed this year! It will be on Thursday from 6 to 8pm before the Team Captains Meeting. If you cant make Thurs night, we can still check you in Sat. at 8-8:30 am. Goody bags will be handed out to team captains between 8-8:30am on July 23rd south of the Hermosa Pier. We’ll have the Anthem sung at 8:45, and games start at 9am sharp. South of the Hermosa Pier.
How do I sign up extra people to my team? Each player must sign him or herself up this year. Purchase an additional player ticket through the online registration system. Each team MUST HAVE 4 PLAYERS, but there is no cap on how many extra players you can have on a team after the core 4 players.
Does a Girl have to touch the ball during play? No, but for each team there must be at least 1 girl on the court at all times.
How many teams come out of each pool? With so many teams, only 1 team will come out of pool. Single elimination in the playoffs.
How do challenges work? In pool play, each team will have a chance to do only 1 challenge per game. No challenges in playoffs.
What time does playoffs start? We will close down pool play at 3:30, and playoffs will begin immediately after.
What are the rules? We’ll post rules on www.Smackfestevents.com soon, but we play indoor rules where you can take serve with hands and 3 after the block.
Do I have to where a costume? It’s not mandatory, but you will look pretty goofy being the only one not wearing one.
