Special Substitution Rule:  If one of the team's players is unable to participate for any reason (injury, another commitment, etc.), that player may be replaced with a qualified substitute.  A qualified substitute is a player who participated in at least one of this year's qualifying tourneys.  Note, only one substitution per team.
Local AAU Beach Rules Apply. 

Special WCC FAQ'S
Tourney Issues:
Q. My daughter qualified in the 14U on two teams.  Can she play on both teams?
A. Sorry, but no.  She could only play on one team due to potential scheduling conflicts.  (One team per day – see the below question.)  But remember, teams can bring out qualified substitutes (our substitution rule is explained, above).  So, if using a sub, both teams can participate.
Q. My daughter qualified in the 14 & 16U divisions.  Can she play in both tourneys?
A. Sure.  These two divisions are being run on separate days, so there’s no scheduling conflicts.  If it were on the same day, such as 12 & 14U, then the answer would be no.
Cookout Issues:
Q. Is this fancy or casual?
A. Casual.  It will be a cookout near the courts.  No need to change clothers.
Do we need to stay for the cookout?  And if we don’t attend, will we receive a partial refund?
For those that don't make the playoffs, the tourney ends at around 1:30 - 2.  So the 1st part of the question is, what to do during the down time?

I'm hoping participants will stay and watch the playoffs.  Of course, you could always leave (leave & come back after a shower?). 

As for a partial refund for those that don't attend the dinner?  No, that's part of the tourney fee.  But I hope you stay. 

The cookout is an awards banquet.  For t
he top 4 teams, it's a little group recognition of their accomplishments.  And the cookout is a great opportunity to socialize with others who fall within this special class of top athletes from our beach v-ball community.
