HOUSTON POWER LEAGUE


11s–15s Divisions

Houston Power League consists of four weekends of tournament play for 11s, 12s, 13s, 14s and 15s. The Power League is set up as a series of events throughout the season. Teams that are unable to play in all events will be accepted as space allows. In recent years, the event has been full and teams have not been guaranteed a spot for specific events unless other teams have been unable to play. Teams are seeded initially in PL#1 and then move seed each event based on where they finish. If an event is skipped, teams will drop to the bottom of the division. Teams will play either Saturday or Sunday, not both days. The dates are posted below under Schedule & Results.


2022 Dates:
January 8–9
January 29–30
