Example Seeding Chart. PDF XLS
Higher-seeded teams will host 1st and 2nd Round games. Although it will be the responsibility of the host school to contract officials, both schools will share the cost of the referees. Games throughout the tournament should have three referees (one in the middle with a whistle and two on sidelines). Semifinal and championship games for both tournaments will be played at a neutral site (venue TBD). There will be an initial tournament entry fee of $50 per participating school per team (i.e. if a school sends both their boys’ and girls’ teams, they pay $100); the tournament fee covers referees for the semifinals and championship game, as well as team plaques and individual medals. Any additional costs will be shared by participating schools.
Information for the Championship game will be announced after the semi-finals are complete (if applicable).
