HP Boy's Ladder Series (Multi-Day Tournament)

The Boy's Ladder Series is an event that was created by High Performance-STL in 2013 to provide a more meaningful and event-like experience for the boy's teams in the Gateway Region. The event is based on the extremely popular point series in Chicago, which was created to allow all teams an opportunity to find their own level of play, and ensuring that the powerhouse teams and the less experienced teams would be playing teams of their own skill and talent level. We at HPSTL believe this event will be exciting and lead to a more competitive and memorable experience for all teams. 

The "ladder" format allows teams to move up or down the strength based brackets/pools based on their finish. This allows for teams to find their own level of play, based on their results.
