OUT OF AGE DIVISION TEAMS:
Big South will make every effort to place teams in a division in which they wish to play.  If a team desires to play up an age division AND there is space available without denying an age appropriate team an entry position, the team may play in an older age division.  A team may play up a maximum of two age divisions.

A team may be moved up at the request of the tournament, but if this team is accepted in the proper age group, they must agree to the move. A team unable to gain access may be offered the opportunity to play up by the tournament.

ENTRY ACCEPTANCE DISPLAY: 
You can check whether your team has been accepted into the tournament by going to your teams account in SportWrench under the "My Events" tab..
