TEMPE, Ariz – We are excited to announce details for the 2021 USA Touch Nationals to be held in Austin, Texas from November 11 – 13 at Hun’s Field. After a challenging year in 2020 where we weren’t able to get any official USA Touch events off the ground, we are excited to stage this event in Texas. We last held the USA Touch Nationals in Texas in 2008 and are very pleased to take the event back to the Lone Star State.
This year’s event brings difficult challenges, and USA Touch has had to make tough decisions about how to run this event in COVID-19 times. We have made the decision to limit the number of teams that can participate in this event. The numbers that we will accept will be as follows:
Men’s Open – 10 total teams
Women’s Open – 6 total teams
Mixed Open – 6 total teams
To give as many clubs the opportunity to be at this event, each club will be restricted to entering one (1) team in each division, with a maximum of two (2) total teams in the event. Any team who misses the deadlines for registration will be added to a waiting list on a first paid, first served basis. As is required by tournament rules, a player may only play for one (1) team for the duration of any USA Touch tournament.
To register for the event, each team/club will be under the following entry requirements:
September 15th – registration links will be opened for each division at the following times:
9:00am Pacific time – Men’s Open
10:00am Pacific time – Women’s Open
11:00am Pacific time – Mixed Open
Each team will need to be part of a registered USA Touch club and only two (2) teams will be accepted for each club
Each team will require a $600 nonrefundable deposit (tournament entry will be a total of $1600) to secure their spot on the team roster. This deposit is payable at time of registration on or after September 15th
