Summer 2022 - Monday / Wednesday

Playoffs - Summer League 2022

This summer we will be trying out a new structure for our playoffs. Traditionally we've done playoffs in groups of 16 teams with an upper and lower single elimination bracket. We ran into two main issues with that structure: It was more likely have high skill disparity from the #1 and #16 seed and there was inconsistent attendence from teams in the lower bracket.

With that said, we here is the structure we'll be using for this summer. 

Upper Bracket

  • Playoffs will be split all teams in groups of 8**
  • The groups of 8 teams will be made up of the rankings on the standings page (e.g. Group 1 = 1-8 | Group 2 = 9-16 | etc...)
  • It'll be an 8 team single elimination bracket
  • Schedule for these games
    • Quarter-Finals:  Wed Aug. 10th / Thurs Aug. 11th 
    • Semi-Finals:  Mon Aug. 15th / Tues Aug. 16th 
    • Finals:  Wed Aug. 17th / Thurs Aug. 18th
      • Note: M/W Group 1 Finals and TR Group 1 Finals will be played at the finals party on August 23rd. Details below.

Consolation bracket

Teams who lose their first game in the upper bracket can opt-in to playing in the consolation bracket. Captains of the teams who lose their first playoff match will have until Midnight on Friday, August 12th to opt-in. There will be an option on the website for teams to choose this. The schedule and brackets will be created on Saturday, August 13th. 

The option to Opt-in function will be listed on the website, soon after scores for the first playoff games in you division have been recorded. 

  • The Consolation Bracket will be split into groups of, up to, 4 teams of similiar skill, of teams who chose to opt-in
  • It'll be a single Elimination bracket 
  • Schedule for these games
    • Semi-Finals:  Mon Aug. 15th / Wed Aug. 16th 
    • Finals:  Wed Aug. 17th / Thurs Aug. 18th

One-day a week teams
Teams which only play one day a week, are eligible to play in playoffs, but they will have to potentially play twice a week. If a one day a week team cannot do this, please inform us ([email protected]) and we will remove you from the upper bracket playoff schedule. 

Finals Party

We will have the Finals party on Tuesday, August 23rd at Warner Park. M/W Group 1 Finals at 6pm, TR Group 1 Finals at 7:30. 

Complimentary food will be provided for summer league participants. Admission is free for guests; a guest food wristband can be purchased for $20.

Soda and water will be provided with food wristbands; attendees will have to supply their own age-appropriate beverages beyond that.

**Note:  If all t/th teams play, then te 65th/66th teams will play each other and then they'll be placed into the Consolation Bracket.
