12s-17s PLAYING LOCATIONS
Posted as we know them or as we get close to finalization. Subject to change:
13s Division: Likely Corban University (Salem)
14s Division: Likely Kidsports Fieldhouse (Eugene)
Junior Handbook requirements indicate that the highest ranked 4 or 8 teams in Power League (depending on the age group) will qualify for the Bid Tournament. With our schedule this year, it may mean a quick turnaround for a handful of teams. Our office will notify teams as soon as possible when they have earned their qualification.
12s Division: All teams who registered by the deadline have qualified for the Bid Tournament and have been notified.
13s Division: All teams who registered by the deadline have qualified for the Bid Tournament and have been notified.
14s Division: Teams who have qualified for the bid tournament have been notified of their acceptance into the event, based on their results from 14s Power League Qualifier on 4/10.
15s Division: Top 4 seeds in Power League after Power League 1 on 5/1 will qualify for the Bid Tournament on 5/2.
16s Division: Top 8 seeds in Power League after Power League 1 on 5/1 will qualify for the Bid Tournament on 5/2.
17s Division: Top 4 seeds in Power League after Power League Qualifier on 4/18 will qualify for the Bid Tournament on 5/1.
12s-17s FORMATS (SUBJECT TO CHANGE)
12s, 15s, 17s will play a 4-team standard pool, with the two top finishers in the pool earning bids. 14s & 16s will play a modified double-elimination bracket as outlined in the Junior Girls Handbook. The 13s will play a 3-team pool due to the number of teams registered. All pool play will have tie-breaking sets played if necessary.
Entry fees will be $150 per team for the 3- or 4-team divisions, and $200 per team for the 8-team divisions. Entry fees will be invoiced to clubs by the CEVA office once it is determined which teams qualify (likely as part of the April billing cycle).
Teams are obligated to accept a bid should they earn it. In the event a team earns a higher bid at a later date or already has a higher bid, an earned/accepted bid at this tournament will trickle-down to the next highest finisher. Accepted bids may still trickle down. Teams who do not earn a bid at our Bid Tournament will be placed on a waiting list to accept a trickle-down in-region bid later in the year. The waiting list will be populated in order of finish (i.e., the third place team in the Bid Tournament will be the first team on the waiting list to earn a trickle-down bid)
