2. Odd Year, Odd Hosts

This is the prevailing theme, since it is 2015 it is the "Odd" District and Region's year for hosting...more on that

3. The Framework
Round 1: The Higher Seed ALWAYS Hosts. This round will always have a team seeded higher than the other.
Round 2: The Higher Seed ALWAYS Hosts. This round will always have a team seeded higher than the other.

Round 3 (Regional Finals): The Higher Seed ALWAYS Hosts. This Round though can have two teams with the exact same seed. In this Event the team from the ODD NUMBERED DISTRICT hosts

Round 4 (Semi-Finals): Seeding DOES NOT MATTER. The team from the ODD NUMBERED REGION ALWAYS Hosts. The Region 1 winner Hosts the Region 2 Winner in the West, and the Region 3 Winner Hosts the Region 4 winner in the East. District DOES NOT matter, it is only about which Region you Fall Under.

Region 1= District 1 & 2
Region 2= District 3 & 4
Region 3= District 5 & 6
Region 4= District 7 & 8


- Examples:
Round 1: #2 Seed District 7 vs. #3 Seed District 8
The #2 Seed Hosts Because They Have The Higher Seed



Round 2: # 2 Seed District 1 vs. #1 Seed District 2
The #1 Seed Hosts Because They Have The Higher Seed

Round 2: # 4 Seed District 3 vs. #2 Seed District 3
Even though the 4 Seed has defeated a #1 Seed, the #2 Seed Hosts Because They Are The Higher Seed



Round 3: #2 Seed District 4 vs. #1 Seed District 4
Even Though the #2 Seed Defeated the #1 Seed of the Odd District, #1 Seed District 4 Hosts Because They Are The Higher Seed

Round 3: #2 Seed District 8 vs. #3 Seed District 1
The #2 Seed would Host Because They Are The Higher Seed, The Fact They Are From An Even District Does Not Matter Because Seeding Reigns Supreme

Round 3: #1 Seed District 5 vs. #1 Seed District 6
The #1 Seed District 5 Hosts Because the Seeds Are The Same, But Odd District Hosts



Round 4: #1 Seed District 5 vs. #1 Seed District 8
#1 Seed District 5 Hosts Because They Are Region 3 and District 8 is Region 4. Odd Region Hosts Regardless of Seed

Round 4: #4 Seed District 1 vs. #1 Seed District 4
#4 Seed District 1 Hosts Because They Are Region 1 and District 4 is Region 2. Odd Regions Hosts Regardless of Seed

Round 4: #2 Seed District 6 vs. #1 Seed District 7
#2 Seed District 6 Hosts Because They Are Region 3 and District 7 is Region 2. Odd Regions Host Regardless of Seed. Seeding Does Not Matter, no does whether the District Number is Odd or Even in This Case.
