2019 AZ REGION CHAMPIONSHIPS RESULTS


Open Region Championships

  • Coaches Meeting: 8:30 am START Time
  • Tournament START Time:  9 am

Region Championships tournaments are here. The format is very different than our regular power tournaments. The tournament will start the 1st match at 9 am and last most of the day instead of just half day. Lots of information follows. Please read it!!

Parents: There is no lunch break built into the tournament. Please bring food with you or send someone for food. Neither the coach nor the players should leave the site for food. Do not stop for lunch when moving to another site for bracket play. The bracket play will start when teams have arrived to start the tournament. Sites are in contact with each other to know when play has ended at each site. Penalties for being late to ref assignments or match play will be enforced. Several sites have snack bars open for business if food can't be brought with you.

PLEASE DO NOT TAKE ANY FOOD OR DRINKS INTO ANY GYM. ALL COOLERS ARE TO BE LEFT OUTSIDE. NO EXCEPTIONS ARE ALLOWED AT ANY GYM. ONLY WATER IN CLOSED CONTAINERS FOR PLAYERS AND COACHES IS ALLOWED IN THE GYMS.

NO COOKING OR HEATING OF ANY KIND IS ALLOWED AT ANY OF OUR SITES AS WELL.

NO ALCOHOL IS ALLOWED ON THE CAMPUSES OF ANY OF OUR SITES - NOT EVEN ON A SATURDAY OR SUNDAY FOR ADULTS ONLY. THE SCHOOLS ARE ALCOHOL, TOBACCO AND DRUG FREE ZONES 24/7 - THIS IS A STATE LAW.

PLEASE CLEAN UP YOUR TEAM CAMP AREA. PLEASE BAG YOUR TRASH AND TAKE IT WITH YOU. DO NOT LEAVE WRAPPERS AND FOOD BEHIND. THIS IS ALSO A GOOD WAY TO MAKE SURE NO OTHER PERSONAL ITEMS ARE LEFT BEHIND.

Coaches: Come to check in with a CURRENT WebPoint roster (no handwritten rosters, no team lists) your picture ID and medical release forms for each player on your team. The roster submitted should be current and signed by the coach. Any player on the roster that is not there should be crossed off. Any player or coach not listed on the roster is not eligible to participate.

Division Play -

The seeding is based on the finish of the last power tournament. There was no movement up or down after the last tournament. Teams stayed in the order of finish for seeding of the Region Championships. Teams are snake seeded into pools of 3-8 teams within their respective age divisions:

  • 17 Open - 24 teams
  • 16 Open - 27 teams
  • 15 Open - 19 teams
  • 14 Open - 9 teams
  1. 4-team pools will have modified pool play (1 v 4, 2 v 3, loser v loser, winner v winner)
  2. 6-team pools will be split into 2 pools of 3 (normal pool play) with a cross pool match to determine bracket
  3. 7-team pools will be split into 2 pools:
    • the 3 team pool will play normal pool play
    • the 4-team pool will have modified pool play (1 v 4, 2 v 3, loser v loser, winner v winner)
    • pool play to be followed by cross-pool matches (e.g. B1-1st v B2-1st, B1-2nd v B2-2nd, etc.)
  4. 8-team pools will be split into 2 pools of 4 teams and will have modified pool play (1 v 4, 2 v 3, loser v loser, winner v winner) to be followed by cross-pool matches (e.g. B1-1st v B2-1st, B1-2nd v B2-2nd, etc.)

Most teams will need to travel to another site for their bracket play. The brackets will be 4-6 team single elimination brackets with consolation games for place (no consolation games for 5 team brackets); 3-team brackets will play pool play format for final finish.  Pools listed below are the starting locations.

Important Tournament Information - Please Read!

  • Any teams traveling to out of state qualifiers - A coach or other rostered certified adult is required to ref as an R2 for every match when assigned as the work team at National Qualifier tournaments.  It is strongly recommended (although not required) that a rostered adult R2 at least one match at every AZ Region tournament to remain proficient for qualifiers.
     
  • PLEASE!!! Let the Arizona Region Office know if you will not be at the tournament PRIOR to Saturday. There is a $100 fine for teams that "no-show". The point is that it creates a big problem if there is a team that does not show.
     
  • Coaches - please have your teams on site and ready to play at the start time even if they are to referee first round.  A "no show" at start time will change the division format immediately.  Everyone needs to be ready to play.
     
  • Purple Card policy will be in effect.
     
  • Coaches you must be available during ref assignments to help with scorekeeping and officiating.  You are also responsible for your parent's behavior and "team camp" area clean up.
     
  • Let us be reminded that facilities are one of the most difficult parts of putting together a successful season. To that end, we MUST treat them with the utmost respect. That means keep your coffee, food and coolers outside, NO COOKING OF ANY KIND (includes crockpots, hotplates, sterno heated chafing dishes, barbeques, anything that produces heat, etc) on the premesis, pick up all the trash around your bench area and your "camp" area, NO ALCOHOL on site, and park in designated parking spaces only. Treat all facility personnel as if they have the authority to ask you to move your stuff because they do. Thanks for your help in making this a very successful season.

Parents: Please make a special effort to keep food and drink out of our facilities. We must also make sure to clean up after ourselves. This is THE major source of the reluctance of athletic directors to let us use gyms. We need to do a much better job keeping food and drink (including coffee and coolers) out of the gym!
