The following contains all the pertinent information regarding this month’s U11-U13 State Cup Draw for the Gold, Silver, and Bronze divisions.

Second round Ranking Process:

Each of the Gold, Silver, and Bronze Divisions are divided into an upper division and a lower division. Teams are then ranked in the second round based on the following criteria from the first round results:  

  1. Placement within your Flight (IE-1st, 2nd, 3rd, or 4th)
  2. Points, GD, GF and then Goals against.
    1. 1st and 2nd place teams all move to the upper division.
    2. Lower 3rd and 4th place teams move to the lower divisions.
    3. For wild card teams moving to the upper division, these would be the stronger 3rd place teams
    4. If your division is listed as Gold or Silver, the upper division will be Gold, the lower division will be Silver. For all other divisions, upper will be A and lower will be B.

Live Draw:

Teams are associated with a draw number. Norcal will draw ping pong balls that has a coordinating number to the team. We will draw all ping pong balls from Pot 1 first. The first ball that is drawn will be in flight A and we will continue the process until all ping pong balls are drawn from Pot 1 created the first team in Flight A. The second team drawn will be flight B. The third team drawn will be flight C. And so on…  

We will then move to Pot 2 and do the same process before moving onto the same for Pot 3 and 4. Teams that played each other in the first flight will not play each other in the second flight.  

The live draw will occur on Tuesday, October 8 and will be posted on the Norcal state cup home page on Wednesday, Oct 9th
