Confirmed Teams

12s Division / 14s Division / 16s Division / 18s Division

Format & Schedule

We are planning a slightly different format for this year's tournament.  This format will allow for a bit shorter day and more opportunities for education of scorekeepers and referees in game-like situations

All teams will be in 4-team pools (unless divisions do not sell out).  Each match will be 3 sets guaranteed, first two sets to 25, third to 15 (capped at 27 or 17).  Teams will be "seeded" based on last year's Power League finishes and what other information may be available.  We are looking to have officials on each court, with the primary goal being the education of scorekeepers and coaches in preparation for the season.  Each team will have one 3-set match to officiate, and each team will be off for one round. 

Pool Format
8:00 AM or 2:00 PM - Seed 1 vs. Seed 3 (Seed 2 referee, Seed 4 off)
9:15 AM or 3:15 PM - Seed 2 vs. Seed 4 (Seed 3 referee, Seed 1 off)
10:30 AM or 4:30 PM - Seed 3 vs. Seed 4 (Seed 1 referee, Seed 2 off)
11:45 AM or 5:45 PM - Seed 1 vs. Seed 2 (Seed 4 referee, Seed 3 off)

If there are divisions that do not get filled on either day, teams in other divisions may be asked to play on a different day if capacity is reached (i.e. 44 teams register in the 14s division, but only 20 teams register in the 18s division, we may ask four 14s teams if they can play Sunday).  This type of schedule change would not be confirmed without the consent of all teams affected.
