Here’s a brief description on how the tournament will work:

TOURNAMENT FORMAT & AWARDS
Youth, Teen, & Adult Division Teams: Teams will be placed into brackets, or groupings, based on their team characteristics, including: each player’s gender, height, age, and playing experience. Teams will receive no fewer than three scheduled games. The tournament will begin with pool play within each bracket. Based on a team’s pool play record and other qualifying factors, including tiebreakers, teams may then advance to a seeded single-elimination playoff on the tournament’s second day. The two teams advancing all the way through the playoff will compete for the Bracket Championship. Players on the Champion and Finalist teams in every bracket will get awards for their achievement.

Elite Division Teams: In the Men’s and Women’s Elite Divisions, teams will be placed into gender specific brackets regardless of each player’s age, height or playing experience. Depending on the number of teams, there may be multiple brackets in each Elite Division. Similar to other Divisions tournaments, the Elite Division tournament will begin with pool play within each bracket. Based on a team’s pool play record and other qualifying factors, including tiebreakers, teams may then advance to a seeded single-elimination playoff within each bracket. The winners of each of these bracket playoffs will then compete in an overall single-elimination Division Championship.

There will be a single team crowned Champion in the Men’s Elite Division and a single team crowned Champion in the Women’s Elite Division. The Men’s Elite Division Champion team and the Women’s Elite Division Champion team will each receive a $1,000 team cash prize. The Men’s Elite Division Finalist team and the Women’s Elite Division Finalist team will each receive a $500 team cash prize.

Each team will be scheduled for at least three games. Participants can learn more and register their team, or sign up to volunteer, at everett3on3.net.
