The “Best of the Rest” Tournament is a tournament that is open to all Session 1 (Summer), Session 2 (Fall), and Session 3 (Spring) teams lost in the playoffs against a Wild Card team. If the team participates in a playoff match in subsequent sessions, they are no longer eligible tor this event. This is an additional opportunity to qualify for the Tri-Cup Tournament.  The “Best of the Rest” tournament will take place following the end of the playoffs in Session 3 (Spring). To be eligible to participate in this tournament, players must have at least six scored matches with that team during the regular session.
