(ethnicity & age)
Majority of our events will be ALL FILIPINO unless stated otherwise. All players should be full or part Filipino or be Philippine citizen. Birth certificate, passports or any other valid government
identification should be readily accessible during our events. The challenger must pay $20 (for every challenged player) for an investigation to be held regarding ethnicity and/or age. If the challenged player is determined ineligible due to ethnicity or age, any game that player has played in will be deemed a disqualification. ($20 Challenge Fee is non-refundable)
Once your team manager and/or coach submits their team roster, a player profile will be created for every player.
Once the profile is created, the player can pay online their $75 registration fee for the 2021 MPAA Turkey Ball tournament. A date will be arranged with your team manager/coach for one of our PBU Canada representatives to come and take a profile picture to complete the PBU Canada profile.
YES, players can play on multiple teams and multiple divisions. Just as long the player knows they are responsible for the player fee for each team. As well the player must start and finish a game with the same team. They are not permitted to start a game with one team and leave half way through to play for another team.
