Tournament Information
Posted May 7, 2018

Layout for 2018 is the same as 2017 (Map Attached)- Fields 1-7 are located on the Dublin Scioto High School (DSHS), 4000 Hard Road, Dublin, OH  43016; Fields 9-12 are at Emerald Field located at 4040 Wyandotte Woods Blvd, Dublin, OH 43016; and eight games, out of 137 scheduled for this weekend, will be played approximately a mile away at Davis Middle School, 2400 Sutter Parkway, Dublin, OH 43016.  There is no field 8.  Please study the brackets and be aware of where your games will be played and take the steps to get to the location on time.  We will not delay the start of any games because of "travel time."   

For planning purposes, everyone's second game on Saturday, regardless of the outcome of your first game, is scheduled to be played 3 hours after the start of your first contest.  For example, if you play your first game at 8:00am, your second game is scheduled to start at 11:00am.  Every team will have two games on Saturday.  Sunday's game time will depend on the team's success in the first two contests and your team must participate in all their games.
