Format

For under 7 to under 13’s the tournament will be streamed by ability. Teams will rate thei ability when entereing the tournament. The Yellow Section is for teams who are rated 1 (high ability) and 2 (better than average). The Blue Section is for teams who are rated 3 (below average) and 4 (low ability). Under 14 and the Girls’ tournaments will not be streamed so the above does not impact these age groups

Under 7 to Under 8 (including Under 7/8 Girls) will be a round robin with no scores recorded. Teams will be grouped by ability where possible.

For under 9 to under 13 there will be two separate competitions. One competition will be for teams rating themselves as 1 or 2 (Yellow Section) and a separate competition for teams rating themselves 3 or 4 (Blue Section). This will mean children should play against other children of similar ability providing a more meaningful experience.

For Under 9 and above their will be a cup and plate competition which will ensure every team will have at least one knock out game.
