IRVINE GIRLS SUMMERTIME CLASSIC
For this year’s tournament, we have been restricted to following the one game per team per day rule. Given the unique structure for this year’s tournament, please pay particular attention to the POOL STRUCTURE AND TOURNAMENT SCHEDULE and TOURNAMENT CROSSOVER SEEDING & TIEBREAKS as enumerated in the Rules.
Pool Play -- Games will take place on Thursday, Friday & Saturday. We will be using 3-team Pools, 4-team Pools & 5-team Pools. Teams assigned to a 3-team Pool or a 5-team Pool will play two of the three Pool Play days and play two 2-hour games (max 6 innings) on either Thur & Fri; Thur & Sat OR Fri & Sat. Teams assigned to a 5-team Pool will only play two of the four teams in the Pool. The matchups are specified in the Rules. Teams assigned to a 4-team Pool will play Thursday, Friday & Saturday. These teams will play the typical 1hr20min game and play the other three teams in the Pool.
Tournament Crossover – All teams will play on Sunday. We will not be conducting the traditional Sunday Elimination Bracket for each Divisional Championship. Instead, the first place team from each Pool will play for the Championship. The remaining teams will also play Tournament Crossover games on Sunday. Non-Championship games will be 5 Innings. Championship games will be 7 Innings.
We look forward to seeing you and to a great weekend of softball!
