Kickoff Classic

January 7-8, 2017

As of January 6, the Myrtle Beach Kickoff Classic WILL be held. There is little chance of inclement weather in Myrtle Beach, and it should not effect teams arriving at the tournament. Any changes will be sent to Club Directors via email and posted on this site.

Palmetto Region Inclement Weather Policy:

For bad weather that strikes one to two days before the tournament, the tournament WILL BE HELD unless teams are otherwise notified (canceled tournament information will be on the HOST and/or region web page and an attempt will be made via email to notify all teams).

Considerations to cancel will be made based on weather at the location of the facilities.  Refunds will not be provided because weather is bad from where team is coming from.  We try to make decisions by 3pm day before event begins.
