Red: Also known as a Select division - this will be the highest level of competition. Most teams in this division will be nearing the end of their 8U eligibility.
White: Most teams will fall here. This is for players with some experience, but not yet ready for an ultra-competitive experience.
Blue: This is for beginning teams. This could be suitable for younger teams, or possibly a Learn to Play program wanting to experience a tournament.
