This year with the number of game cancellation due to COVID unfortunately the league schedules will be unbalanced in some Leagues/Divisions which may impact the "seeding" in the tournament.
The actual "seeding" of the teams is done by final finish position in league play with whatever advantage there might be going to the teams finishing first in each of the league/divisions. We will also try and minimize the impact on the teams traveling from outside of the greater Phoenix area.

All of your tournament games must be played to a decision, no Ties... below are the tournament rules to be used incase of a tie in regulation time.
