Divisions

Three Game Guarantee
Each team is guaranteed to play at least three games during the tournament.
There will be a winner's bracket and a consolation bracket similar to a double elimination tournament. Teams that lose their first two games will get to play an extra game in the consolation bracket to ensure all teams play at least 3 games. A team that has won once in the winner's bracket is guaranteed 3 games because they will be playing their second game in the winner's bracket and then dropping down to the consolation bracket if that game is a loss. A team that loses their first game and wins their second game (consolation bracket), will play 3 games. In the championship game, the team coming out of the loser's bracket must beat the team coming out of the winner's bracket twice.

The "And Under" System

Using the "and under" system allows players to play up to their athletic abilities by not placing a minimum age restriction on a division. To qualify for a division the player must be at or under the age defined in the division name. For instance, for a player to qualify to play in a 14U division (aka "14 and Under") their 15th birthday must be after March 26, 2016, which is the day of the tournament.

Adult and Youth Divisions
We are opening the tournament with 2 adult divisions, 4 youth girls divisions and 4 youth boys for a total of 10 divisions. It may be necessary to combine like divisions if there aren't enough teams to create a competitive bracket or divide divisions if there are too many teams. The following table lists all of the divisions by name. The goal is to have a minimum of four teams in each division.
