2018 Triple Crown Tour – Sectionals to Regionals Final Bid Allocations

Below is the bid allocation for the 2018 Triple Crown Tour sectional championships to regional championships, taking into account the Pro and Elite Flight teams that have accepted their byes to regionals and those that earned growth bids in the women’s division. The bid allocation for regionals to Nationals will occur with next week’s end-of-regular-season rankings, after the Pro Championship. To be included in these rankings, teams must have played, or will have played after the Pro Championships, 10 games and have registered for the Triple Crown Tour Postseason Series.

If you have any questions, contact USA Ultimate Club Division Manager Ernest Toney at ernest@hq.usaultimate.org.

Notes:

  • In the women’s division, Schwa took P/E bye, Ivy elected to migrate to the Washington Section instead of “winning a one-team” Oregon Section. The Oregon auto bid moves to Washington.
  • In the mixed division, there were more strength bids available than ranked teams to apply those bids to. As a result, the final three strength bids were awarded using the average strength rule and applied in this order: Washington (5th bid – Avg. Strength #1), Big Sky (6th bid, Avg. Strength #2), Oregon (7th bid, Avg Strength #3).
