Teams must be paid for the tournaments they attend before receiving their rebate money.  At team registration of your team’s last National Tournament, your team will be given money up to $645, depending on how many AYBT nationals, events, tournaments and 1-day shootouts your team participated during the calendar year as of January 1st. Teams receive a $25 rebate for each AYBT tournament, event, 1-day shootout for successfully participating in the AYBT tournament; up to $100. Teams choosing to participate in multiple AYBT National Tournaments will also receive a $150 rebate for each additional AYBT National. For teams choosing to play in all 4 AYBT Nationals, the team will receive a $545 rebate, along with a $25 rebate (up to $100) for any AYBT events, tournaments and 1-day shootouts your team participated in during the calendar year as of January 1st – the $150 additional AYBT National rebate does not apply to the rebate program if a team chooses to play in all 4 AYBT Nationals.  AYBT reserves the right not to honor the rebate if the team no-shows a scheduled AYBT Tournament or game, is kicked out of an AYBT Tournament. If this occurs, teams must contact aybtour@yahoo.com to state their case. However, AYBT will honor the $25 rebate if a team is successfully paid for an AYBT Event, Tournament, 1-Day shootout that fails to host your division.  If a team has an unpaid balance with an AYBT Director or AYBT Nationals, the team will forfeit the unpaid balance portion of their rebate.
