Teams will be placed in a single elimination bracket at random. Four fields are available for tournament use. Games will only be played on Saturdays from 8:00 am until 4:00 pm. Games are 40 minutes in length. Ten minutes is allotted for half time and 10 minutes for teams to warm up. A team can plan only one round each Saturday.
