: : : Whats the rationale around not allowing more than (3) tournaments during the year?
: : Too many games. Every other section allows a maximum number of games at 26. They can play as many tourneys as they want but each game counts as a game. We are going to that next year.
: : In this format(each tourney counts as two), if you played 4 tournaments you could get up to 31 games. They dont want HS students spending that much time on the court, rather in the classroom. The season is already long enough.
: Under the three tournament rule I can schedule 29 games.
: Since the sections allows 20 games, but tournaments count for two, I can schedule three 5 game tournaments, which gives me 15 games, which leaves me 14 more slots to play, or a total of 29.
: Thus if you played a 4 tournament schedule you could actually get 32 games. Four 5 game tournaments, is 20 games, with each counting for 2 games, leaves 12 slots left, so 32 games.
: Moving the first game up to beginning of November will be interesting.
The interesting proposal was to remove the tournament restriction entirely. That would mean a team not in a league could conceivably play 50 games. Of course that was put down immediately
