Showcase session assignments will be posted here by this weekend. Wave 1 pools will be posted here on Wednesday 3/11. Real-time results will be posted to Shamrock website throughout tournament weekend as soon as matches end and scores are reported to tournament staff. FYI, we still have 1 available spot for a 17’s or 18’s team. At this point, we would allow a 16’s team to play-up simply to fill the spot and to ensure that all teams have full pools for the weekend. Please spread the word and help us fill that last spot. Interested teams can register in AES… first come first served. Please e-mail with any questions.

UPDATE: Here is some important information about Shamrock registration. Based on requests from various club directors, AES registration for the 2015 Shamrock Festival will open at 12:01am on Thursday November 27. This gives folks an extra day to handle their online team entries if they want to do so on Thanksgiving Day. It also does not penalize those clubs unable to register on Thanksgiving Day since there is no mail on Thursday and teams are only accepted – regardless of when they enter in AES - in order of RECEIPT by mail of a signed team entry form from AES and a check made payable to Shamrock Festival. Online payments are not accepted and team rosters are not required at the time of team entry but will be required for all accepted teams later. Please e-mail if you have any questions.
