Technique Sports Training has many years of experience in the youth sports industry and it is our NUMBER ONE PRIORITY that players, coaches & fans experience baseball at its very best during every LivFree tournament.
We have a ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY for disrespect to each other, umpires, guests and staff on and off the field. We expect EVERYONE who attends our tournaments to handle themselves in a manner that displays good sportsmanship and sets a good example for every ball player and participating team.
We will not tolerate coaches, players or fans acting out or displaying what we consider unsportsmanlike conduct. Such conduct will result in removal from the game and/or the tournament at the discretion of a LivFree Tournament director.
It is our responsibility to our guests to maintain a fun and positive baseball experience.
Coaches: it is your responsibility to enforce the code of conduct to your players, parents and fans.
Any player ejected from a game will be suspended for the remainder of the game being played and the next game. Please note that the Director will have final say on all suspensions.
Any coach, parent or fan ejected from a game will also be suspended for the remainder of the game being played and the next game. Please note that the Director will have final say on all suspensions. Technique Sports Training has the final say on appropriate and inappropriate behavior.
Please Note: These rules are not all inclusive. Common sense should be used at all times: Violations of these Rules may lead to team or individual suspension from tournament play. Parents and family guests assume all risk and danger of personal injury, losses, damages to person or property and all hazards arising from or related in any way to, the LivFree Baseball Tournament that they are attending.

System used for advancing and seeding for tournament:
If pool play ends early due to poor weather we will go to best winning percentage to determine the bracket standings. A minimum of 2 games must be played in pool play to be eligible for the playoff round.
The baserunners will be placed as follows:
* National Federation Baseball Rules apply in all other cases
Technique Sports Training age/division determination runs from September 1 through August 31 the following calendar year. (On September 1st of every year your team moves up to the next age division. For example: If you played 12U in the summer – you would play 13U as of September 1st.
Technique Sports Training determines the age of a player by an April 30th cutoff. The age of the player on April 30th determines what age/division that player is in.
There are no pitching restrictions; pitching is coach’s discretion.
Second visit to the mound per inning will result in removal of pitcher. Once a pitcher is removed from the mound, they may re-enter and pitch after one batter (an inherited batter is considered one batter) is pitched to regardless of whether they left the field or not. We leave this discretion to the coach, but we strongly recommend the USA pitching guidelines. Everyone is competitive by nature, but please keep in mind the health and career of the player and no game is as important as the player remaining healthy.
9u thru 12u: 1 warning. MLB rules apply to most situations (no 3rd to 1st moves).
13u thru 18u: Dead Ball – No Warnings. MLB rules apply to most situations (no 3rd to 1st moves).
9U -12U divisions: Rubber Cleats only
13U and over: No restrictions
One run will be added to the winning team for purposes of Runs Allowed/Runs Scored in Pool Play.
Extra Inning starts tied at 5 to 5 and the visiting team’s scores 5 and the home team scores 4; the winner is the visitor, but the final score is 6-5 visitor for Pool Play. It is not fair to either team to tack on runs when we start the inning or innings with the bases loaded.
