Format & Schedule
Tour of Texas age groups will have two divisions:
Tour of Texas: Invitational Divisions (14s-17s) -
Invitational divisions comprise 24 teams with Power Pool format (similar to Triple Crown). Teams will receive an invitation to participate in the upcoming Tour of Texas Invitation division based on performance at the previous’ years JNC. A small number of Invitation Team spots will be offered to elite out of state clubs. Any unclaimed out of state spots will be filled with Texas teams. Initial team registration will be done by the event staff and club directors will then be able to log in to their AES account and complete the process.
Tour of Texas: National Divisions (12s-18s)
Registration for any of the National divisions are open to any team/club choosing to participate. Division sizes will range between 24–48 teams. Number of teams per club may be limited based on registration numbers and gym space. Any team registered in the National division, who is offered a spot in the Invitational, can have the registration moved by the event staff.
A third division may be created in some age groups based on registration numbers and gym space.
Each division is seeded based on up to date result information leading up to the event date. Seeding for Stop 2 will include results from Stop 1, but will not be exclusively based on the Stop 1 finishes.
Wave times will be posted closer to the event
*AES Maxes for each division are subject to change based on registration trends and available court space. Maxes may increase or decrease at anytime and do not represent a guarantee of available space but rather an estimated anticipated division size.
