GIRLS POWER LEAGUE


EXPLAINER

CEVA Junior Girls' Power League is a series of 4-5 tournaments during the regular season that determine an in-region ranking for each team.  Ages groups are 12s, 14s, 16s, and 18s.  The two biggest age groups - 14s and 16s - play 5 tournaments.  Each tournament - generally speaking - will guarantee teams 4 matches against unique competition.  The first 1-2 tournaments of the series, usually in January, are "Qualifiers" to determine where teams will be pooled (14s and 16s play two qualifiers).  Tournaments after those are generally in divisions of eight teams, where each team will play in a pool, followed by a crossover match against a team from another pool.  Tournaments happen throughout the region on Saturdays and/or Sundays.  Events usually start at 8:00 AM and are done by 4:00 PM. 


TENTATIVE FORMAT

CEVA is tentatively planning to return to a normal Power League format in 2021-2022, including shorter days and a traditional schedule.  More information will be posted on this page once finalized by the Junior Girls' Committee.

PL REGISTRATION

Registration for 2021-2022 Girls' Indoor Power League will open via a form on this website starting at 9:00 AM on Monday, November 8th.  Registration will close at 3:00 PM on Thursday, December 2nd.  Registrations submitted after the deadline will incur a $250.00 per team late fee and those teams will be seeded at the discretion of the Junior Girls' Committee (which can mean they are seeded last in the division).


ENTRY FEES/PAYMENTS

12s & 18s Divisions - $625.00 Per Team
14s & 16s Divisions - $700.00 Per Team

Clubs who earned Blue Ribbon Status in the 2021 season, but did not send teams to GJNC, receive a $25 per team discount on entry fees to Power League.

Power League will be invoiced in four installments in the 2021-2022 season.  Installments will be part of regular invoices that are sent to clubs on or about the 25th of each month.  Clubs who wish to pay for the entirety of Power League up front may do so by simply putting a request in writing to the CEVA office.  Installments will begin showing up on club invoices in December, 2021.  Invoices are due 30 days after issuance.  A full payment schedule can be found in the Club Directors' Handbook, which each club acknowledged and signed prior to the season.


SEEDING

Seeding for Power League is based on a number of factors, including recent Power League and Regional Championship finishes, information provided by the club directors, head-to-head results in the current season if applicable, and other information gathered by the committee.  The Junior Girls' Handbook outlines the process by which 16s and 18s teams can challenge their seeds.
