|Divisions of Play:||
Teams will be placed in skill level divisions based on their ISSA Rating and verified by the tournament staff. However, some brackets could be combined to equalize the competition as tournament staff determines to be appropriate given the age and skill level of the entries. (This event will not follow the normal and customary team bracketing used at all other ISSA Tournaments.)
The awards prepared for the Virginia Beach tournament will be presented to the teams at this make-up event. Team awards will be given to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Place finishers in each division. Individual awards (T-shirts) will also be given to the players on the top three teams. The players selected for the All-World Team will receive awards as well. Photos of the top three finishing teams will be posted on the ISSA Website as well as all the individuals receiving awards. (Other teams requesting a team photo will also be posted on the website.) Teams are requested to come to the "awards table" in uniform when exiting the tournament for awards and photos.
The entry fee for men's senior teams (who do not have the free berth from Virginia Beach) is $300.00. (No charge for teams that paid the Entry Fee for the Virginia Beach tournament and received the $300 credit for another 2014 ISSA tournament.)
T-shirts and other apparel will be for sale at each venue.
