» I have already signed up my team and my partner cant play now. Can I substitute him/her with someone else?
Contact your local tournament director. If the local tournament director approves the substitution, your team entry form will need to be updated with the new player profile information. Teams are subject to elimination if all players are not listed in the national tournament database prior to the start of your local tournament.

Contact local tournament director.
The team entry fee for a local tournament is $55 plus $3 processing. One player must pay the entry fee for the team when registering. The entry fee covers play at all levels.
Yes. In most cases, a player can enter up to two divisions per local tournament. The local tournament director has the right to limit play to one division. If a player/team enters multiple local tournaments and wins the same division in both tournaments, the team can only advance representing one of the local tournaments. The 2nd place team may be invited to represent the other local tournament in the next level of play.
Players will receive a player gift at all levels of play. Winners and runner-ups will receive awards.
There are three separate age groups, both based on the age of the child - a 10 and under, 18 and under division and an 18 and older division. If you are competing in the 10 and under or 18 and under age group, the child can not be 11 or 19 prior to August 15, 2015.
No. Players are responsible for all expenses (travel, lodging, meals) in the early rounds of play. Teams qualifying for the National Championships round will receive complimentary lodging, daily breakfast and lunch and more.
» I have two sons. One is 8 and one is 14. As their parent, can I play with both of them on separate teams? Will they play in the same age division?
A parent can only play with one child of the same gender in the same division. However, a parent is permitted to play with both a son and a daughter in two separate divisions. Should you advance to the Super Regional Playoff level in multiple divisions, you should be prepared to play within the alotted time. Pending the size of the regional, it may be difficult to offer players competing in multiple divisions special consideration.

Each local host facility will establish the eligibility rules for their tournament. The NFTC encourages all tournament hosts to allow non-members to participate. In all cases, players are expected to honor the facilities member/guests rules.
No. All NFTC tournaments are “Open” division play.
