REGIONAL QUALIFYING FORMAT

You must play in one of the Qualifying Tournaments listed below to play in the Championships in July in San Diego. Every team that plays in a qualifying tournament will be eligible for the Championships.  Results from each qualifying tournament will help determine proper level placement and/or seeding. 
Boys' age divisions 10U through 14U may offer 2-3 levels of play:  Division I, Division II, and possibly Division III. 
Teams will make a suggestion to the level of the team when registering, and final placement of teams is left to the discretion of CSG tournament director based on the number of teams entered and talent level, strength of qualifier played in, placement in qualifier, overall win/loss record, previous year's scores, and regional director's input if needed.

Gold medal winning teams from the 2017 California State Games automatically qualify for the 2018 CA State Games.  Contact our office for details.
