  • All 5 teams are required for D1
  • Minimum of 3 teams are required for D2
  • Players cannot play on more than 1 team
  • Players on Open Teams
    • #1 should be the best team, #2 the second best, etc. But that does not mean the top two players need to be on Team #1. Players 1 & 3 may play better together than 1 & 2.
  • Players on Mixed Teams
    • Male players that have competed in Pro Division 2021/2022 should not be on the mixed team. There are no requirements around the female players.
  • Alternates
    • Each squad is allowed to have up to two alternates that can be used to replace an injured player where the injury prevents the player from safely continuing.
    • During pool play, the alternate will take the spot of the injured player.
    • Adjustments to teams can be made between pool play and bracket play so that the teams are leveled correctly. Example: If a player on Team #1 is injured in pool play, the alternate will take that spot. But, before bracket play, a player on Team #2 can/should be moved to Team #1 so it remains the top skilled team on the squad. The alternate will then move down to Team #2 or #3.
    • The teams that start the bracket competition must remain the same throughout. Injuries after the start of bracket play will result in that team needing to forfeit.
