Updates to the Footbag Net Format:

This year's footbag net competition will feature a new and improved format and schedule, as well as three divisions in addition to women's. The new divisions are

1) Open

2) Advanced

3) Intermediate.

This realignment will enable us to run a tighter schedule, so you will know when your matches are, and will benefit you, the players, by offering you more matches against other players at or near your level. All divisions will have a showcased final and awards through 3rd place. You may choose your own division.

General division guidelines:

*Open Division is for the top players. If you frequently place near the top at your regional events, or have finished in the top half of Open at a recent Worlds, this could be your division.

*Advanced Division is for players who generally compete in Open, but who tend not to advance out of the pool, or don't finish in the top half. Advanced players may have won Intermediate before, or advanced beyond the Intermediate level.

*Intermediate Division is for new players or more casual players who have not won or placed highly in a previous intermediate division.

All divisions of net competition will use a "pool to bracket" format. Players will be seeded into pools, and pool play results will be used to advance and seed them into a single elimination bracket. You may choose your own division based on your own judgment and history. However, the Open *bracket* will be kept to a limited number of entrants. This means that some players who enter in the Open division will be resorted into the Advanced bracket after pool play. So, there are two ways to get into the Advanced bracket:

(1) Enter Advanced when you register. The Advanced pools will feed you into the Advanced bracket.

(2) Enter Open when you register, and if you don't advance to the Open bracket after the Open pool, you will be fed into the Advanced bracket.

Intermediate entrants will play pools into an Intermediate bracket.

Women may enter ANY division, Intermediate, Advanced, or Open. Women who wish to compete only with other women should enter Women's Open or Women's Intermediate. Both these divisions will be formatted with pool play into a single elimination bracket. Players can enter in only one division per event.

Any division may be merged with another without prior notice, at the tournament directors discretion, if it does not get a large enough draw.
