Eligibility requirements:

All players on a team must have completed two (2) sessions as a Team Captain of a standard 8-Ball or 9-Ball team in the 2017/2018 League year in Western Nebraska.  The 2017/2018 League year includes Summer 2017, Fall 2017 and Spring 2018 sessions.

Players must be on an active Summer 2018 8-Ball or 9-Ball roster.

Players must have at least twenty (20) 8-Ball scores or twenty (20) 9-Ball scores within the last two (2) years.  A combination of scores from the two formats is not allowed.

Players must have played at least four (4) times in the Spring Session in Western Nebraska on either a standard 8-Ball or 9-Ball team.

Team format:

Teams consist of 3 to 5 players.  3 play in match.  The total of the skill levels of the 3 players fielded in a team match cannot exceed 15.  A player's highest skill level between formats (8-Ball & 9-Ball) must be used toward the 15-Rule.  Exception - skill level 8/9s will count as 7s in this event.

Only one player of skill level 6 or higher, sometimes referred to as a senior skill level player, may play in any given match.

Game rules/format:

Team Captains flip a coin to decide who must declare their three players for the match.  Winner of the flip has the choice of declaring first or having the opposing Team Captain choose first.  The Captains will list their players in ascending order (lowest to highest).  That list determines the player rotation, and is locked for the match.  Once both teams have declared their players, the players cannot be changed unless the 15-Rule is in jeopardy.

Order of play will be lowest skill level to highest.

Alternate between 8-Ball & 9-Ball racks, starting with 8-Ball.

Players lag to see who wins the first break.  Once the first two players in the rotation have completed their rack of 8-Ball, the second two players in the rotation will play a rack of 9-Ball.  Upon that rack's completion, the next two players in the rotation will play a rack of 8-Ball.  Once set, the player rotation continues until a team reaches the required points necessary to win the match as determined by the games must win chart for the event.  Example:  Your team and the opposing team both put up 3 players with a combined skill level of 15.  In this case, the match will be a race to 5.

The winning team breaks with the next player in the rotation after each rack.

Each individual match is worth one team point.

One time out per player per game will be allowed.

Modified Single Elimination Format.
