Pool Play Information - 7th Grade - 2011

With 14 teams in the 7th grade tournament this year, eight teams will start off in 4-team pools (2x) and six teams will begin the day in 3-team pools (2x). For teams in 4-team pools, once completed with morning competition, they will send their 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th place teams to championship bracket matches in Gold, Silver, Bronze, and Copper divisions. For teams in 3-team pools, whose pool play competition will be considerably shorter, full match crossover competition will match appropriate competitors from Pool C and Pool D against each other to determine seeded placement into championship bracket for Gold, Silver, and Bronze divisions. NOTE: Crossover matches (for 3-team pools) will be played at the same venue as the pool play matches but might be held on a different court.

As always in tournament competition, early arrival of all teams will guarantee that we have the flexibility that should allow us to keep to the generic shown below.
