Do you have different levels of Tournament…like a Competitive and Developmental?

YSF currently provides 2 types of tournaments that have the exact same benefits and programs in the Florida Tournament only. All other state tournaments do NOT have D2

Division 1 – The Division 1 tournament has a 5 game regular season over 5 weeks, followed by a 4 week playoff schedule through to a State Championship. Every team that enters the tournament makes it to the 1st round of the playoffs.  This is done deliberately as we have 100’s of teams and cannot guarantee teams strength of schedules. The D1 playoffs is a knock out tournament, with teams playing in their own conferences initially (East and West) until a Conference Champion is crowned (East Coast Champion & West Coast Champion).  The State Championship is between the East Coast Conference Champion and the West coast Conference Champion.  The playoff format is typical.  i.e. Regular season determines seeds, and the top seed plays the bottom seed, second top plays second bottom etc.

Division 2 – The Division 2 tournament has a 5 game regular season over 5 weeks, followed by a 4 week playoff schedule through to a State Championship. Every team that enters the tournament makes it to the 1st round of the playoffs.  This is done deliberately as we have 100’s of teams and cannot guarantee teams strength of schedules. The D2 playoffs is a knock out tournament, with teams playing in their own conferences initially (East and West) until a Conference Champion is crowned (East Coast Champion & West Coast Champion).  The State Championship is between the East Coast Conference Champion and the West coast Conference Champion.  The playoff format is typical.  i.e. Regular season determines seeds, and the top seed plays the bottom seed, second top plays second bottom etc.

The D2 playoffs teams that may have faired poorly over the regular season are provided the option to enter the D3 Post Season Bowl tournament to end their season competing with more like quality teams.  Please note:  There is no D2 tournament for Tiny Mite or Varsity.
