You'll want to gather a birth certificate (or state issued ID) AND a report card for all of your athletes.

How many games does my team get in the tournament?

All teams will play a minimum of 4 games, with the opportunity to play 8+.

How are the pools generated for each division?

Pools are randomly generated at USBA Nationals. Once pools are randomly generated, the only deliberate change to a pool would be to separate teams from the same city who may end up placed in the same pool. Diversity in competition is what makes our national tournament special, so we'll avoid your team having to play against a familiar opponent in pool play.

How many national champions are crowned per division?

Three National Champions are crowned for each grade division. After pool play, the top teams from each pool will play out of the "National Division". The next tier of teams will play out of the "American Division", and the last place teams out of each pool will play out of the "Classic Division" - a champion is crowned for each of these divisions.

Does my team play everyday?

Most teams will start play on Tuesday, however a portion of the tournament field will begin tournament play on Wednesday July 17th. All teams are guaranteed to play a game on Friday July 19th. Friday will start single-elimination tournament play.
