Pre-Registration Requirements

Once you have completed your on-line registration at Hang-a-Star, you must FAX copies of the required documentation to USAT in order to complete the registration process.

If you do not fax the required documents to USAT and your status as of March 2, 2016, is “PENDING,” you are required to appear before the Check-in Staff on Saturday, March 5, 2016, for on-site check-in, and you must surrender photocopies of your required documents in order to compete.

Forms and photocopies are not the responsibility of the Registration Staff. You must arrive prepared to Check-in if you intend to compete. No exceptions or extensions. All forms can - and should - be submitted to the USAT in advance of the competition. To ensure easy check-in and to minimize risks of identify theft, OSTA recommends providing this information directly to USAT at least two weeks in advance of the tournament.

No refunds will be issued at any time.
