Players may play “up” in an older age group.

- Tiebreaker procedure:
- If there is a 2-way tie based on wins-losses, then head-to-head results will be used.
- If there is a 3-way tie based on wins-losses, then a point differential system will be used based on cumulative margin of victory for all games played will be used (15-points per game is maximum).
- If there is a 3-way tie based on wins-losses and also a subsequent 2-way tie based on the point differential system above, then head-to-head between the 2 teams will be used to determine which team gets the higher position.
