The purpose of the Gold and Silver Divisions is to provide teams opportunities to play a greater amount of competitive games.
This will allow teams to develop at a faster rate. We introduced the Gold and Silver Divisions in 2017. While teams have enjoyed the concept, we are running into the issue of sandbagging. Too often we see good teams playing in the Silver Division. When in doubt, we recommend playing in the Gold Division.
This will not only make for a better tournament but will also be more beneficial for your team long term.
We can only continue to offer the Gold and Silver Divisions if a sufficient amount of teams play in the Gold Division.
Note: A higher percentage of teams will qualify for Championship Day in the Gold Division versus the Silver Division.
