How do I register my team for a tournament?
Each DUSC team will be given a list of mandatory tournaments they are to attend. You can see your teams tournament list by clicking the appropriate link below. In addition, coaches can find a list of approved tournaments to supplement the mandatory tournaments once you have clicked the relevant link below. Please work with the Director of Coaching to ensure you supplement your mandatory tournament list with additional tournaments. Tournament registrations will be completed by the Director of Operations. Please send an email to the Director of Operations and they will register the team for the selected tournament. Please complete the Credit Card Authorization Form if required to make payment for the tournament.
Team Fiscal Account/Fundraising
Many of our DUSC teams will fund raise throughout the year to cover expenses and keep costs to the families at a minimum. Each team can have a team account with DUSC that they deposit into with the club. The club will keep a spreadsheet of deposits and expenses but it is the team managers responsibility to keep a record of individual family transactions.
Teams are responsible for the coach’s expenses when traveling to an event/tournament. This includes a $50.00 per day fee, hotels/lodging, meals totaling $35 per day and gas receipts plus 10%. Please utilize the DUSC Expense Report to calculate the coach’s expenses.
The below forms you will find useful and need to complete when either depositing money into the club or requesting money from your team account.
At DUSC we utilize a wonderful travel company called Legacy Travel International that helps us with all our hotel needs throughout the season. When going to events please call Legacy Travel International and they will organize the hotels on your teams behalf. For events and tournaments that require teams to use their specific travel companies you must follow the instructions of the tournament and utilize the company that the tournament provides. For any events that require hotel stay but do not have a travel company please call Legacy Travel International at the below.
