Player Travel:

Arrival – Players should plan to arrive on Thursday evening February 2, 2017.  
There will be a pre-tournament team meeting in the hotel that night- Time will be provided by your coach.

Departure – This is a three-day tournament.  The last day of a tournament consists of playoff and placement brackets.  There is no way to determine when your team’s last match of the day will be as the schedule is determined by team standings.  Therefore, we ask you to assume that you will be at the venue through 5pm and plan your return flight for after then.  


The Dennis Lafata Gateway tournament schedule is now live.  Please use the link below to access the schedule and be sure check here throughout the tournament as the schedule will continually be updated as the tournament progresses.


Admission will be charged for spectator entry.  Admission bracelets for spectators will be sold on Thursday night in the pro-shop (which is in Hall F of the convention center).  For those who are arriving early enough, it may be a good idea to get them on Thursday as the team will be playing in the morning tract on Friday.  Admission bracelets will be sold in room 139 of the convention center as of Friday morning.  Prices for bracelets are:

  • $10 for a one day pass, OR
  • $25 for a 3 day pass.
