We always try and divide teams into divisions that are representative of their playing level. This is typically SINGLE A, A/AA and/or 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 the #1 and #2 seeds will play for the championship. If a division has 10 or more teams, the #3 and #4 teams will play a consolation game
TEAMS CHOOSE DIVISION (at registration)
Each team will select their team's classification on (Single A, AA, or AAA), and what division. MAJOR teams are welcome in our events but MUST play one age group above their own, or play in their own designated MAJOR division.
RINGS for 1st and 2nd place teams in each division.
