These are the dates chosen by the South Texas Division for its tournaments for the 2019-2020 season. The national calendar has already been published. The dates below have no conflict with national, regional or local tournaments that are currently listed on that calendar.
November 17, 2019 Junior Olympic Qualifiers Venue: To be announced
April 4, 2020 Summer National Qualifiers Comal ISD (New Braunfels, Tx)
April 25-26, 2020 38th Poujardieu Memorial TxState University
The Division is announcing a trial run, an experiment for the upcoming season, of how tournament dates will be selected for the SOTXDIV calendar. This is an attempt to make the scheduling process as clear and impartial as possible.
Regular submission of preferred tournament dates will begin on Friday, 12 July and end on Wednesday 31 July, 2019. Submissions should be done by email to both the Chair and the Secretary of the South Texas Division.
Precedence of preferred dates will be given to the date submission received on a first come, first serve basis.
If there is a conflict of dates, then the affected clubs must meet with each other to resolve the date conflict, arriving at an agreement that is acceptable to all the clubs involved. Only then can the tournaments be submitted to the South Texas Division. Only those tournaments on the Division's calendar will be considered to be sanctioned.
Simply placing a tournament on ASKFRED.NET does not mean that a tournament is sanctioned by the South Texas Division. The dates must first be submitted to the Division in the process described above.
Additional tournaments, clinics, seminars can be added anytime during the season following the above process.
We want all of the clubs wishing to host tournaments to work together. This is your division!
We are sure that there will be questions so please contact us with those or any additional concerns.
Thank you for your time,
Oscar Barrera Emmanuelle Jean
