Tournaments begin in January
They will be on either a Saturday or a Sunday at various locations throughout Southern California.
Some venues charge for parking and charge for entrance fees - bring your cash!
Tournament locations are found out the week of tournament.
They are usually an AM or a PM shift
Your team will be placed in a "seed" either 1, 2, 3, or 4. That will tell you what your game schedule is. (you can check in "Tournament Pools" under "Schedule" for the seed schedules.
Be at your tournament location by 7:00 AM
1st games start at 8:00
maximum of 3 games per match (best out of 3 games)
You eat lunch on your lunch break (usually best to pack your own lunch or team will do potluck)
not all venues have snack bars
Four teams per court, you will play ALL teams on your court
Each team will reff and score keep at least once during the day
NO ONE IS ABLE TO LEAVE WITHOUT LETTING COACHES KNOW :)
Expect an AM shift to last 6-8 hours long
Be at your tournament location by 1:00 PM
1st games start when AM shift has left
Everything same as AM shift except you will leave at dark - sometimes as late as 9:30 PM
Coaches try to make every effort to get every girl on the court during a match.
