FORMAT: All teams will be split into divisions that are representative of their playing level. This is typically A/AA and AA/AAA divisions. Depending on the number of teams entered, priority will be placed on making the event the most evenly competitive tournament. All teams will play two pool games, and then split into a Sunday single elimination championship bracket. With enough teams entered, division brackets can be separated further into gold and silver Sunday brackets.
TEAMS CHOOSE DIVISION (at registration) – each team will select either A/AA OR AA/AAA for their playing level as well as which division they select to register for...MAJOR teams are welcome in our events but MUST play in their own designated MAJOR division, or play one age group above their own.
AWARDS: RINGS will be awarded to all players on 1st and 2nd place teams in each division. One ring is available to the head coach as well.
