Event Day Information

Can I play in multiple divisions?

Due to the format of the tournament, you may only play in one division per day. But teams may compete in the individual and club brackets.

Can I play with my friend from a different school?

No, all teams must have players that are enrolled in the same school.

How does the Club Bracket work?

The Club tournament will begin in bracket play and the Squad's seeding will be determined by the Squads combined points based on final placements of the teams from the Individual Bracket. See points below in rankings section. The matchups in the Club Bracket will put the Squads’ 3 individual teams (1v1 2v2 3v3) against the other Squads’ 3 teams.  
 
The order of the individual teams as part of the Squad will be determined by the placement of the teams in Individual Bracket play. If two teams from the same Squad are knocked out in the same round of the Individual Bracket, the point differential in that round will determine which team is seeded higher. If point differential is the same then whichever team had the higher seed entering bracket play is the higher team. If two Squads have the same combined point total then the Squad with the higher finishing team in the Individual Bracket gets the higher seed.
 
The Squad that wins 2 out of the 3 matches continues on to the next round of the bracket. If a Squad with only 2 teams plays a Squad with all 3 teams then the 2-team Squad must win both of their matchups to continue. If both Squads only have 2 teams then point differential will be the tie-breaker in the case of the Squads splitting matches.
 
Because the team count is limited to 3 in order to compete, a school may have multiple Squads compete in the Club tournament. The top Squad for each school must have 3 teams, any additional Squads may have 2 teams. But, Squads must be declared before the start of the Individual tournament (i.e. UGA has 6 teams and must declare which teams are a part of UGA Red and UGA Black before the individual tournament). The order of the individual teams as part of the Squad will be determined by the placement of the teams in Individual Bracket play.
