Pool Play Seeding is based on when you select your first game on media night during the draft party. All teams with 5 or more teams in their division will battle to select their placement on the schedule, where you’ll have a say in who you play, what time and on what field. Coaches will select which seed they want on the schedule in reverse order of their Battle™ Points ranking, and you can take any spot on the board, bumping out another team if desired, who would be forced to take an open spot.
Team A has the least Battle Points and selects first, and is on the clock (1 minute to decide) . They select the 5th seed on the schedule so they can start at a later time. Team B is up next, and selects the 1st seed to avoid being in the same pool as Team A. Team C is up next, and decides they want to bump Team A out of their spot and steals the 5th seed. Team A then is forced to take an open spot on the board, and selects the 2nd seed place themselves in the same pool as Team B who they think they matchup well against. This continues all the way through the draft until the last 3 teams are left. The only rule exception is that if any of the top 3 teams get bumped out of their spot, they are allowed to bump again. So if Team Z has the most points and is the last to draft and bumps Team X out of their spot who was the 2nd or 3rd highest points, Team X would be allowed to bump another team out so they’re not stuck with the only open spot on the board having earned a top 3 draft position. The team they bump would have to take the last open spot on the board, and the draft would be complete! It is a fun way to select your pool play positions and gives each team some input on when, where and who they play!
We do pool play here at the FFWCT, 3 games for youth on Saturday with all teams advancing to single elimination playoffs on Sunday.
Since we do pool play, we’re able to do schedule blocks so you’re guaranteed to be able to play or coach in up to 3 divisions. You can still enter teams into multiple divisions that may overlap, but we cannot guarantee conflicts and will not be accommodating any schedule requests since the draft will be used for seeding.
However, a player CANNOT play on multiple rosters in the same age group (i.e. Two teams entered into same division with any of the same players).
4 game guarantee – 3 pool play games on Saturday plus single elimination bracket on Sunday for all teams in each division.
After you finish all of your pool play games, playoffs brackets/seeds will be determined by factors IN THIS ORDER:
Disney Tickets, Trophies, Individual Medals, 5X Battle Points, Championship Rings, and Full Paid Bid to use at your choice of one of our 2020 National Championships (East Coast, Gulf Coast or West Coast) if 10 or more teams. If 9 teams or less will get a 1/2 Bid
ALL YOUTH TEAMS will use NFL Flag style, Sonic Flag-a-Tag flags or the Youth Shruumz belts and flags for all divisions. ALL TEAMS must provide their own flags, you can purchase them on-site as well but they will not be provided.
If you earned a full or a 1/2 paid bid through winning any of the FFWCT regional, state or national championship events this year that you’ll be redeeming for Worlds, you’ll want to register your team in the “My Team Has a Paid Bid” division. This will allow you to pay the $50 deposit that is required no matter what so we know the team is coming, and will ask you for your division in which we will then move you to that division in short order and will lock you into your registration date for points. If you had a 1/2 bid, we will apply your credit and you will still have a small outstanding balance that will need to be paid before the deadline. For teams with a full bid, this is all you’ll have to do other than we strongly encourage you to book your hotels or housing through our registration so you get the best deals possible.
All payments are final as of November 1st, 2019, and no refunds will be allocated for teams not attending of their own accord but may request a credit towards any FFWCT operated tournament within a calendar year. If a division is cancelled, a full refund will be given regardless. Click here to read though our full terms and conditions.
We do not take schedule requests here at FFWCT. We have pre-made schedule blocks that you can find by scrolling down below, so you can see what time which formats play to avoid schedule conflicts.
You can also impact your first games start time by selecting a better spot during the draft during media night.
The graphic below lays out which divisions will and will not overlap. We have 3 blocks, and you are guaranteed to be able to coach multiple teams if they fall in different blocks. If you are coaching two teams in the same block, it is recommended you have an assistant coach or it may be possible through the draft when you select your schedule to avoid conflict but it is not guaranteed.
DIRECTIONS: 4100 Boggy Creek Rd, Kissimmee, FL 34744
Austin-Tindall will be the primary facility but we will be utilizing satellite fields with more details coming soon on which formats to expect to be at which facilities.
