Schools wishing to schedule interstate opponents must obtain approval from TAPPS prior to participating in any single contest or tournament event. Schools may not participate against schools not in Good Standing with the recognized NFHS organization for their state in pool play, tournament play or individual contests. It is the responsibility of the TAPPS member school and not the tournament organizer to ensure compliance with this rule.
Schools may not participate against schools or teams who are located outside of the United States without prior approval. Under no circumstances will international teams composed of students from more than one school be approved.
