Due to a lack of participants, we have chosen to cancel this tournament. We will be contacting registrants shortly to arrange the refund of REGISTRATION fees. If you have any questions or comments, please forward them to ethosTournament@gmail.com
The Ethos Tournament will be a fun, affordable tournament that fosters an ongoing conversation about Spirit of the Game. Unlike other spirit tournaments we are asking players to play their “A” game, and compete to win, but also be willing to explore Spirit of the Game while playing. Our desire that every player be part an amazing team experience and leave with new insights into Spirit.
