Guaranteed Acceptance Teams - Teams that played in a USYF Regional and are division Champion or Finalist. These teams have until February 19, 2023 to register and pay the tournament fee to retain their guaranteed status. After the deadline teams will forfeit their guaranteed acceptance status, become At Large teams and will be evaluated as At Large teams.
At-Large Teams - These are teams that competed in a Championship Series event and were not awarded a Guaranteed Acceptance. All At large teams must register and pay by February 28th, 2023.
After all guaranteed accepted teams, the next preference for consideration will be given to teams that participated in a current year USYF Regional, but were not crowned Champions or Finalists. This group contains guaranteed acceptance teams that did not meet the Feb 26th, 2023 deadline
After those teams have been placed, the remaining slots will be filled by any additional At-Large candidates.
The tournament committee will review the At Large applications and acceptance status will be sent to those teams no later than March 12th, 2023.
