The general strategy isn't too difficult with snake.
Step 1: Actually get in the snake. Some fields you may go directly there off the break some fields you may go to an insert off the break and bump later on. Just make sure you watch down field so you can have an idea on where the paint is coming from and where the other team is going.
Step 2: Shoot inside. This is where all your shots are going to be. pretty simple.
Step 3: Move up. Then repeat step 2. You'll need to trust your corner and really work with him to get this done.
Now I admit, this isn't a very good "guide" but this is really the bare bones to snake there are a ton of videos on playing the snake online with good tips.
One mistake new snake players tend to make is getting in and panicking. There's paint whizzing over your head and your adrenaline is pumping and you pop up and get your head blown off. When you get in keep your head down for a second and LISTEN. Figure out where the paint is coming from and listen to your team so you have an idea where the are before you pop up.
I'm sure you'll have at least one practice before the tournament so just practice getting in there and staying alive, the kills come naturally after that.
One more thing: Good luck! You're always nervous your first tournament it's only natural. Just stay smart and have fun.

playing snake your first time will be pretty difficult. its going to be near impossible if you dont have someone in your corner who can back you up effectively.
you should have one of your teammates get in a position where they can shoot at/down the tape. that way you can concentrate on shooting people out in the center of the field, while your corner prevents someone from running you down/or making moves up the snake.
i play snake corner quite a bit and try to feed my snake guys as much information as possible. they enjoy being able to keep their head down when they need to and like being updated with wtf is going on. communication is key.
Talk to your corner guy. when im playing behind someone i even try to couch them when i can and let them know when they can make bumps or play wide in order to get a kill.
