Special Instructions to Teams Attending the
8th Grade Girls 2023 League Championship Tournament
Prairie Farm and St. Croix Central (Hammond), Wisconsin
The 8th grade League Championship Tournament will be played in two communities: Prairie Farm (the Top 12) and St. Croix Central (Second Tier of 24). We will be using three surfaces in Prairie Farm, two at the High School and one at the Elementary (all within the same building). St. Croix Central will be hosting on six surfaces in Hammond, three at St. Croix Central High School and three at St. Croix Central Middle School – the two schools are about one mile apart.
The tie-breakers for the two different tiers of teams are the same for the 12 teams in Prairie Farm and for the 24 teams at St. Croix Central.
Anytime pool play is involved in a tournament, it’s possible to have teams tie within a pool, with a question of which team will advance as the highest seed to the next round.
Bracketing for the 12 Top Tier Teams Playing in Prairie Farm:
After pool play, there will be four play-in matches to determine which four teams advance to the Championship quarterfinals. The pairings for these matches are as follows:
Match 1: #2 White v. #3 Blue
Match 2: #2 Red v. #3 Green
Match 3: #2 Blue v. #3 White
Match 4: #2 Green v. #3 Red
The losers of those four matches play two more matches each for 9th through 12th place. The four winners, on the other hand, advance to the Championship quarterfinals. The Championship quarterfinals will be formatted as follows:

NOTICE: General Posting for All Teams
Wisconsin Independent Volleyball League Championship Tournaments
Grades 8th and 7th
May 13, 2023
The narrative below should be read by all coaches attending the League Championship Tournament (“LCT”) for 8th and 7th girls to be held on May 13, 2023. In addition, the coach for each participating team should read the grade-specific information associated with the schedule for that grade.
The following points should be noted by all participant teams -- whether playing in the 8th grade or 7th grade LCT:
Players in uniform or with a jersey/shirt in their possession will be admitted free of charge. Each team will be provided with two coach wristbands at the admission table of the venue where that team plays its first match. Coaches will need to display their wristband when re-entering each venue.
Teams will get a minimum of ten minutes (combined, not ten minutes per team) of warm-up time before their first match of the day. After that, particularly where we are running behind schedule, the official on each court and the tournament director have the authority to start a match early if both teams are there and ready to go, and to limit warm-up time. Many early day matches will last only two games, with later matches (whether in the championship or consolation brackets) more closely-contested, often going to three games. Any time that can be made up in early round play will be appreciated later on in the day. With that objective in mind, we ask your cooperation doing the following:
We provide ten medallions per team at each LCT. For teams that win a trophy and have more than ten players actually in attendance at the LCT, you will be able to obtain additional medallions after the event by contacting Tracie Tilton at firstname.lastname@example.org or 715-749-9048. No individual awards will be provided to teams that fail to win a team trophy.
