Individual Team Format
Pool Play
Pool play will consist of all teams playing every other team in their pool once. Games will most likely be to 15, win by 2, cap at 21 but are at the TD’s discretion. Pools will be made by the TD with the intention of having even pools based on rankings and past tournament results.
 
Bracket Play
Teams will be seeded in a bracket based on the pool play results. Each division will have its own bracket. Seeding will be done by win/loss, point differential, then head to head. Bracket play will most likely be 2/3 games to 15 or 21 but is at the TD’s discretion.
 
Club Team Format
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.
 
Other Regulations
Because the team count is limited to 3 in order to compete, a school may have multiple Squads compete in the Club tournament. (i.e. if a school has 8 teams playing in the Individual tournament, they can send two Squads of 3 and one Squad of 2 to compete in the Club tournament). 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.
 
For spring play, teams may only compete in the Sectional in which their school is located. The top two teams in the Individual team tournament of each Sectional will be placed in one of two even power pools at Nationals.
