Regular Season February 15th - March 2nd
Teams will be assigned into groups by Region using the Swiss tournament format. Teams will play 5 matches over the course of 3 weeks.
Playoffs March 4th - March 9th
All teams with a positive W/L record (3-2 or higher) will advance to a single elimination Playoffs bracket by Region. Only one team per school will advance from Regular Season to Playoffs, in the event that more than one team from a school qualifies the team with more match wins will be chosen. If one or more teams from the same school qualify for Playoffs and have equal match wins, tie-break matches will be played before the Playoffs to determine who advances.
Championship Bracket March 18th - April 8th
The top 16 teams per region will advance to the Championship Bracket seeded based off of how they finished within playoffs. Regions will be distributed evenly with each Regional Champion given their own quadrant of the bracket. See this template for an example of how regions will be dispersed.
Captains will be sent scheduling forms to help us schedule Ro64 - Ro8 matches that work both for your team and allow us to schedule you onto the broadcast. If no reschedule time can be agreed upon between teams, we will use the default times.
