ECHO Nationals Team Divisions and Qualifications. The ECHO Nationals at The Blade Runners in Pittsburgh, PA will have the following divisions: 6U, 8U, 10U, 12U, 14U, 16U, 18U, 21U(Junior), Adult Beginners, Adult Intermediate, Adult Advanced, Pro(Open) Division, Masters(over 35), Women's Division, Middle School, High School and Travel Lite(recreational/house league teams) divisions.
All teams must play in an ECHO Regional Qualifier to play in Nationals. If your team is not able to play in a regional qualifier, then contact Bob Boucher at 919-656-0467 or e-mail email@example.com for correct division placement. All divisions will be split up into AAA, AA and A if there are enough teams to do so to create competitive balance. The only exception are the divisions that will not be part of the regional qualifiers: 6U, High School, Middle School, Pro(open), Masters and Womens. We may try and have a High School and Middle School Division at the May 20-22 Qualifier at The Blade Runner's Facility.
More to come in the very near future on pricing, host hotels and block scheduling.
We look forward to meeting all of you at some point and time.
Sincerely, Bob Boucher
