TEAM GIFT EXCHANGE INFO

In years past the 12u teams have exchanged gifts with their first pool play opponent and we'll continue this practice again in 2019. For 14u, 16u and 18u teams, this exchange will be purely optional. So, if you are a 12u team in this event, plan on exchanging gifts with your first pool play opponent. If you are in 14u, 16u or 18u, please let us know if you want to exchange gifts. We'll match you with other teams in your division (if possible) with which to exchange gifts, even if they are not a pool play opponent for your team.
