How The Draft Works

Draft Order is based on USA Flag Ranking Points, with the exception of guaranteed draft seed spots won at our Major and National Championships. All teams with 4 or more teams in their division will battle to select their placement on the schedule, where you’ll have a say in who you play, what time and on what field. Captains will select which seed they want on the schedule in reverse draft order, and you can take any spot on the board, bumping out another team if desired, who would be forced to take an open spot.

Team A has the lowest USA Flag Ranking Points and selects first, and is on the clock (1 minute to decide) . They select the 5th seed on the schedule so they can start at a later time. Team B is up next, and selects the 1st seed to avoid being in the same pool as Team A. Team C is up next, and decides they want to bump Team A out of their spot and steals the 5th seed. Team A then is forced to take an open spot on the board, and selects the 2nd seed to place themselves in the same pool as Team B who they think they matchup well against. This continues all the way through the draft until the last 3 teams are left. The only rule exception is that if any of the top teams (top 3 teams for divisions with 19 or less teams; top 4 teams for divisions 20+ teams; top 5 teams for divisions with 30+ teams) get bumped out of their spot, they are allowed to bump again. So if Team Z has the most USA Flag Ranking Points and is the last to draft and bumps Team X out of their spot who was also one of the top teams, Team X would be allowed to bump another team out so they’re not stuck with the only open spot on the board having earned one of the top team spots draft position. The team they bump would have to take the last open spot on the board, and the draft would be complete! It is a fun way to select a spot and gives each team some input on when, where and who they play!
