Each division is seeded according to team’s power ranking in their region; you will not start in club or open divisions. The divisions are set up in 3 & 4 team pools for Wave 1 play. Wave 1 will be complete after the 2:00 PM match. Wave 2 pools will be established and play will resume around 3:00 PM.
Wave 2 play will continue through match 4 on Saturday evening. The final 2 matches of Wave 2 will completed on Sunday morning, before play moves into a single elimination play-off bracket around 11:00 AM. Each division will have an Open and Club Playoff Bracket, with the winner of each receiving t-shirts. Please keep in mind we do not start tournament play in club & open brackets, we do not have this split until wave 2 has completed. We do this so there are 4 chances in each division to get a first place championship t-shirts. We do not give out t-shirts or medals for 2nd place.
**We will not have medical personnel at any of our facilities.
