10/16 UPDATE: All brackets are final and now available! A team pulled out of the 3rd/4th grade Silver bracket on Sunday which caused the bracket to be rebuilt. All coaches were emailed to check the schedule on-line. We are still waiting on two match scores to be logged from 10/15 in order to seed the 5th/6th athletic and 7th/8th rec tournament.
An email was sent to all coaches and coordinators explaining the tournament seeding process. We ignored all forfeits when evaluating teams and ranking them to be placed in the proper bracket and then seeded. When breaking ties, we looked at head-to-head results but we also look at point differential and a strength of schedule calculation.
The final tournament schedule has been posted for ALL brackets as of Monday morning. Please remember that the 3rd-6th grade rec brackets were based on the results through week 5 of the season. In addition, forfeits were not included when calculated winning percentage when seeding teams in a bracket. 5th/6th athletic vs 7th/8th rec crossover matches were also not included when determine seeds. Please make sure your team is on time for their match. Individual medals will be awarded to players on the championship and runner-up team on Saturday. We would appreciate if coaches would report scores for the tournament as they do during the regular season. If you did not subscribe to report score notifications, we will be subscribing all coaches to this during the tournament so reporting your score will be easy and convenient. Good luck to all teams!
