Frequently Asked Questions

Select a topic category or scroll down to the page to find your question.

How many guest players are allowed per team?
Two (2) guest players will be allowed. No player may play on nor be registered on more than one participating team.
My Head Coach coaches multiple teams. Can I request he/she have no conflicts in the schedules?
The scheduling committee works very hard at scheduling and placing teams according to age, division and according to tournament application, it is your responsibility to fill out application completely and correctly depending on your past league and tournament results. Request for scheduling: We do try to accommodate coaching requests for coaches coaching more than one team but sometimes the schedule request is not possible. Coaches coaching more than one team is responsible for emailing the tournament the team request between February 27th-March 20th with the request. All teams are required to have 2 coaches on staff to avoid any scheduling conflicts.

Do I need a concussion training certificate in order to coach at the Spring Sting?

Concussion Awareness Training
The State of Ohio has recently passed the "Return to Play" law that mandates that youth leagues, coaches and parents have an understanding of player safety and an awareness of injuries including those related to concussions. All coaches and any administrators carded with a team are required to complete mandatory concussion awareness training prior in order to continue to actively participate in coaching and training of youth players. For more information regarding the Return to Play please visit the link below:

All carded coaches participating in the Spring Sting MUST provide proof of concussion awareness training. If you have not completed the course, use the link below to complete the NFHS Concussion Training Course. Once you have completed the NFHS course, you will receive a certificate of completion. Please present a copy of this certificate for all carded coaches with your registration papers. Coaches without this certificate will not be allowed to participate in the Spring Sting.
The application form does not look right on my screen (overlapping drop down boxes, long rows over the input fields, etc.) What is going on?
First, you should let the ENTIRE form load BEFORE you scroll. It is a big form.

In short, your computer does not have enough memory (RAM) available to render the form correctly. Here is the solution that will work in most cases:

1. Clear the cache (temporary files) in Internet Explorer (Usually Tools>Internet Options>Remove Temporary files
2. Shut down Internet Explorer
3. Restart the computer
4. Open JUST MS Internet Explorer.
5. Go to Web site, fill out form.

In most cases, this will solve the problem....
Will there be Tournament Apparel?
Yes! The Tournament Committee recommends you pre-order your apparel via the tournament pre-order site but we will also have onsite merchandise available in a mix of styles and sizes. Overnight customization will be available for purchases made on 4/14 and additional on-site customizations will be available for tournament Champions and Finalists.
