Disregard these times, as we set each match to this time in order to allow matches to remain open for results reporting throughout the regular season. The true default start times for each round are listed below. and will be posted on the “Info” tab for reference. Please contact an admin if you have any questions about this quirk of Round Robin on Tespa Compete. 

Not every group will play 13 rounds of round robin. Some groups will finish early. Please referance your group details page under the "Brackets" tab for most details. This is due to some teams dropping out before the start of the tournament.
