How big are your regional tournaments?

Postby antigem » March 24th, 2019, 4:17 pm

Eastern WA is pretty sparce, we only have 13 C division teams. My school got 1st and 3rd. Were also the only school with multiple teams. The competition is basically Central Valley vs. Tri City Prep.

I see people talking about getting upwards of 50 penalty points for not showing for an event, that amount of teams seems so huge to me

EDIT: Looked at the score sheet again, two teams didn't show up and three other teams only went to a couple events. So it was really only 8 teams competing.

In Pennsylvania, Southeast is the largest region with 23 schools in B division and 36 schools in C division. Teams are only allowed to compete using one team at regionals, so I wonder how it stacks up to mega-regions in other states that do allow multiple teams from the same school.

I would say the average team that attends a regional will have a size of around 35, though this probably shrinks down by a few teams if we exclude San Diego (which typically has around 120 B and 80 C). Median regional size is probably more like 20 teams.

If I have time later this week, I'll try to put together some statistics.

Note that this is a change from last year, where teams could bring two teams to competition.

There were about 30 div b teams at the Fairfax Regional (VA), but people have always been allowed to bring two teams (although not everyone does)

NYC B has 31, NYC C has 71 (I heard that NYC regionals is getting split into 2 different regionals next year). They allow maximum 3 teams per school.

Bringing up San Diego, they have 112 B teams and 70 C teams registered this year, but only 32 B schools and 30 C schools. 32 B schools probably is on the list of largest regionals school-wise, but 30 C schools probably isn't near the top.
