Players in this division may hold a ranking of Division 1 or LOWER and still be allowed to participate as long as they are 40 years old, or older.
Roster Size & Limits:
----- Intermediate: Teams may roster up to 8 players and 2 staff members for this division. Each team will be allowed to roster up to 2 players that holds an APPA rank of Division 3, all other players must be ranked D4 or lower.
Match Start Times:
----- Intermediate matches will begin immediately following the Captain's Meeting. Players should plan on matches starting approximately 7:45am to 8:00am CST. Teams are only required to arrive and be fully checked in 90 minutes before their first scheduled match.
For example: if your first match is scheduled to start at 11:00am, you must have your entire team, staff and players, checked in by 9:30am.
The Intermediate Division will be Continuous play Xball style, played in a match game format. The winner is the first team to score 2 points. There will be 6 minutes of total game time per match, with 2 minutes in between each point. There will be no time outs, and full coaching will be allowed. We have chosen the first to 2 points to allow Intermediate Division teams the opportunity to become adjusted to a Continuous Play format, while not needing a massive amount of players and staff. While the roster limit for this division is 8 players and 2 staff, teams can realistically play this format with 6 or 7 players easily.
Intermediate teams will play no less than 4 matches in the Preliminary round.

Any action deemed to be player misconduct can result in a 1 for 1 penalty, 2 for 1 penalty, suspension, and or ejection. Actions deemed inappropriate can include swearing, hostile physical contact between individuals, throwing equipment, or just being a poor sport and making the event less fun for other players (this includes taunting, counter-coaching, being a jerk in general, etc.)
ABSOLUTELY NO FOUL LANGUAGE will be tolerated from any players, staff or spectators. While we understand this is a competitive event, it is still a family event, and should be fun and enjoyable for everyone involved.
