Due to concerns about low registration, this tournament is now open to high school teams. The main post will be updated to reflect this change.

This tournament is now fully open. We encourage all interested teams to register. Please note that, per the requests of the WORKSHOP team and in order to ensure a more balanced field, we will be monitoring registration to ensure that no "superteams" are formed, and splitting up teams in order to avoid superteams is at our discretion.
