FAQ

NASEF's mission is to provide resources, including our season long tournaments, to ALL students at NO COST!

For this tournament, we are providing:

  • League Unlocked
  • Coaching
  • Tournament Management
  • Live Final Event
  • IT Support
  • Weekly Broadcasts

...All completely free, at no cost to students, families, schools and community-based organizations.

Format

This year, we're looking to split teams into regional brackets. This way, teams only play other teams in the same time zone. We're hoping this alleviates some of the scheduling burdens some teams encountered last year.

The regular season will be in a swiss format. This way teams can still play without getting eliminated immediately.

Playoffs will be conducted in a Single-Elimination style bracket.

Default Match Times

The default match time is Wednesday, 3:30 PM.

This may change during Playoffs to Thursday, 3:30 PM.

 

Each club can field up to two teams for the tournament.

A minimum of 5 students is required for each team roster. Teams may have up to 5 alternates per roster, making 10 the maximum number of players a roster can have.

In an effort to be more inclusive to our online school and home school communities, we are permitting teams to play from home as long as they complete and submit our online waiver and wait for NASEF approval.

The waiver must be completed before each tournament's competitive matches begin. A link to the waiver will be found in the Club Dashboard once opt-in opens.
