Overview & Structure

Power League is a series of 4 tournaments hosted by the Evergreen Region for the U14 and U16 age divisions. The first tournament, held in January will be a seeding/qualification tournament, followed by three more tournaments occurring monthly from January - March. The up or down movement of a team in each tournament will determine their final finish in Power League.

Team Sign-Up and Acceptance Into ERVA Power League

All teams will participate in the ERVA Power League Qualifier on January 8, 2017. Teams who do NOT finish in the top 16 will play in the designated alternate tournaments. ERVA has the approval of the designated tournament directors to hold spots in their tournaments for the non-qualifying teams.  

Format

In Power League Tournaments, each division will consist of 8 teams. Within each division, teams are snake seeded into 2 pools of 4 teams. Competition includes 4 team pool play followed by single elimination bracket play.

Teams finishing in the bottom 2 of each 8-team division will swap with the top 2 teams from the division below them for the next Power League Tournament (i.e. bottom 2 in Gold swap with top 2 in Silver).

 

Seeding & Rankings

The first tournament in January will be a seeding tournament. The initial tournament seeding will be determined by the ERVA Seeding Committee. The Committee will use the previous season’s Regional Championship results, 2017 Power League Rankings, ERVA Rankings, and contact clubs directly regarding their teams. After the first tournament, the seeding for each Power League tournament will be based on the previous tournament’s results.

ERVA Power League will have its own P.L. ranking to determine seeding for the 3 remaining tournaments, along with determining a Power League Champion.

All Power League tournaments will also be given a Tier P multiplier, which will be higher than a Tier 1 multiplier, and be included into the overall ERVA rankings. The total number of teams in the Power League per age division will be used to determine tournament finish.
