To be included, flyers must:

  • be no more than one page (8.5"x11");
  • be in PDF format;
  • include college name, team name, city and state, and competition division (i.e., D-I, D-III and conference assignment);
  • include a consistent form of contact (e.g., team email address); and
  • include a brief team history (e.g., major accomplishments, prior regional/national standings, etc.).

 

Submissions must be received by Monday, June 27, 2016, to be included in the database that will be used at the 2016 Youth Club Championships.
