1:30 pm – 2:00 pm – Skill Fields – Attempts for teams who haven’t done one yet get priority


Teams will get 5 or 6 matches total during qualifications.  This is important to stay on schedule to maintain that 6 match schedule. So matches will only run a max of 1 minute behind for late teams or teams having problems with connection issues.  If there are field problems and we get more than 1 minute behind schedule, then time will be caught up in between matches until back on schedule.
