Tenth's of points will be added to teams who tie in points, but advance on tie-breaks. In pools where one team has an insurmountable tie-break advantage, one-tenth of a point has already been added.
The tournament rules have been available since this tournament was first published. The section on standings (rule 15) is summarized as follows:
A. STANDINGS for pool play games will be determined on the standard scoring system as follows:
WIN = 3 points
TIE = 1 points
LOSS = 0 points
B. Winners of ties in standings will be determined as follows:
1. Head to head
2. Most wins
3. Goals scored (max 3 per game)
4. Goal differential (max +/-3 per game)
5. Fewest misconduct points (3 pts red, 1 pt yellow)
6. Coin flip NOTE: In the event more than two teams are tied: When one or more teams are eliminated at a level and two or more teams are still tied, the remaining teams restart the tie-break procedure.
There is no direct point deduction for send offs. The misconduct points for this are used in tie-breaks only.
Dear Coaches and Referees:
Let me begin by thanking all of you for all you do for AYSO! And, secondly, welcome to the Section 11 Area Q Orange County Spring Classic.
My name is Mike Calder, the Tournament Referee Coordinator. If you:
Here are some notes about referee administration for the tournament:
The SchedulesEtc scheduling system is setup for self-assign. And, self-assign means each referee can sign up for the games which fit in their schedule and they are qualified to do. Each referee uses their unique email address to create a login name and password. If you: a) don't have an email, b) don't understand how to create your login and password, or, c) you are having problems logging in, then please email me for assistance.
Mike will work with a referee administrator to assign referees to a game. However, each referee still needs to login and accept the assignment and this requires a unique email address. Consequently, all referees need to create a login and password.
All game requests (including requests to be removed from a game) should include: Game Number, Game Date, Game Time and Field. If this is a request for a referee team to work together and be assigned to a specific game, then include the referee(s) first and last name(s) and the position(s) (such as "Referee" or "AR").
Referees need to check-in at the referee tent at least 30 minutes prior to the start time of the match.
Tournament Rules and Match Conduct Procedures are posted on the tournament website and on the Message Board after you log in (as a referee).
