Tournament Policies

Refund Policy

No refunds will be issued if the tournament is shortened in part for any reason, including inclement weather or any other "Act of God." No refund for any team that is removed from the tournament by the tournament director for using illegal players or behavior that requires the team to be removed from the tournament. Cape Ann FHC or its staff will not be responsible for any expenses incurred by any team, club or organization if the tournament is canceled in whole or in part.

Event Weather Policy

In the event of adverse weather or unplayable field conditions, the tournament director reserves the right to: 

-Reduce game times in order to catch up with schedule. 

-Finish games before inclement weather arrives, or to preserve field conditions. Reschedule games, if possible. 

-Every attempt will be made to update cancellations on the website. However, weather conditions can change rapidly and all teams should be prepared to play as soon as weather and fields are playable. Updates will be announced on Instagram @capeannfhc 

-No refunds will be granted if these actions are necessary. 


Thunder/Lightning Policy

If thunder or lightning is observed within 8 miles of the facility, play will be suspended immediately and players and fans will be asked to leave the fields to return to cars & seek shelter. Play will be allowed to resume 30 minutes after the last strike of lightning is within 8 miles which the tournament medical staff will determine. Every attempt will be made to begin subsequent games on time. For up-to-date schedule changes please check Instagram @capeannfhc.
