CSE POWER BRACKET
Our signature power bracket is a 4 game guarantee format that contains NO POOL GAMES. It keeps equal competition together through “power” based match-ups and future match-ups. This gives all teams the ability to come and COMPETE at whatever experience level they play. New team??? – Got something for that. Experienced and looking for the best team matchups??? – Be careful what you ask for we got that too! All games are regulation time limits and REQUIRE a winner. All out – All the time! Teams begin in the same bracket in shotgun style format seeded by points. Through the outgrowth of games played – teams maneuver themselves into 1 of 3 divisions – Elite, Premier, or Gold. While all teams are competitive, some are more experienced than others. The tournament continues through these divisions with teams facing opponents that look just like them. All teams find their competitive place and then set their sites on the prize!
THE SUPER DIVISION
The Super Division is the most competitive form of CSE’s signature Power Bracket per age division. Everything is the same – from the 4 game guarantee, ALL Bracket play & ALL games REQUIRING a winner. HOWEVER – the only way into this division is to be at the top of your game! If you and your team can’t get enough (when it comes to competition) or just want a continued challenge – this is for you! Teams who enter the Super Division are admitted by invite only AND desire THE MOST competitive matchups. Game after game after game it just gets tougher and tougher! This bracket is sure to bring the regional competition you are looking for. Not for the fainthearted or inexperienced! But if you dare to climb the gauntlet – the spoils await at the top.
Sounds like fun??? Here are the “how’s” to get in:
To be automatically eligible to compete in the Super 24 your team must fall under at least 2 of the below listed categories:
- Be sanctioned and registered as an “A” level or “Open” level team with at least 1 of 3 major sanctioning bodies.
- Currently have an above .700 average win-loss percentage for ALL your teams played games and finished events over the last 6 months
- Previous top 4 finish in the Elite division of a CSE event held in the last 2 years.
- Be a returning 2022 participant in a Super Division event.
For those teams who do not check two of the above 4 boxes and would still like to be considered – please send us you reasoning for wanting to compete in this bracket, as our age eligible brackets are played in the same Power Bracket format. Second year teams are preferred for participation in the Super Division but first year teams will be considered.
Tell us you want in on the Super Division, and introduce us to your team via our registration form located on our: TOURNAMENT INFO AND REGISTRATION section.

ENTRY/EXIT OF FACILITIES
We ask all parties to enter and exit each facility in a timely manner to ensure there is no congestion at the gates. All team meetings should be held outside of the gates to the complex and away from the entrance to avoid large crowds while people are entering and exiting. Please load and unload all equipment at your parking spot and not at the entrance.
TEAM WARM-UPS AND DUGOUT DESIGNATION
All teams will warm up in the designated warm up area specified by tournament management.
Designated warm up areas will be behind the temporary fencing on each field.
The team listed on the top of the bracket game will automatically take the THIRD BASE dugout and will warm up behind the temporary fencing in LEFT FIELD. The team listed at the bottom will take the FIRST BASE dugout and will warm up behind the temporary fencing in RIGHT FIELD.
Teams will be asked not deviate from this area and choose a warm up location of their own.
All teams will remain in their warm up area until the previous game is concluded. Teams will NOT congregate outside the fence of their particular field while waiting for the current game to finish.
When your warm up is complete, please collapse and store all portable nets and other training/warm up equipment and make sure it is taken with you.
PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE EQUIPMENT ASSEMBLED IN THE WARM UP AREA.
Teams will then walk from their warm up area straight into their dugout, this will help contribute to social distancing as well as crowd management.
In the event the particular field you are playing on does not have temporary fencing, a tournament official will show you the designated warm up area upon your arrival at your field.
COACHES/TEAM PRE-GAMES MEETINGS / TEAM REPRESENTATIVES
Again – teams will NOT congregate outside the fence of their particular field while waiting for the current game to finish.
Each team will make an essential coach available 20 MINUTES prior to game time for pregame conference with officials and the coin flip, only ONE person from each team please. This is to practice social distancing and limit group congregation as much as possible.
Pregame meeting location will be marked at each field.
During pregame, the essential coach will be asked to VERBALLY verify that to the best of your knowledge all of your players are healthy and are not showing any symptoms of COVID-19 or any other illnesses that would prevent them from playing or put others at risk.
Please make sure all coaches and players have plenty of sanitation items such as:
– Hand sanitizers
– Anti-bacterial Wipes
– Any additional items to aid in efforts for personal hygiene/ cleanliness
At the conclusion of every game, each team will be responsible for COMPLETELY cleaning their dugout and picking up every last bottle, piece of paper, and other form of trash and putting them into the trashcan inside the dugout. Please do this quickly and expediently.
Please exit the field immediately following the cleaning of your dugout
Please conduct your after game team meeting outside the gates of the facility again to allow for no accidental “crowd gathering”.
Only the coach, pitcher, and catcher will be allowed in a defensive conference, and will practice social distancing.
If additional information needs to be conveyed to the other infielders, a second coach can speak with the left side infielders, and a third coach can speak with the right side infielders down the first and third base lines respectively, this can take place simultaneously.
All players will refrain from hand to hand contact such as high fives, however high waves are encouraged.
At the end of each game, teams will line up down the first and third base lines and respectively wave across the field to their opponents.
Pitchers will NOT be allowed to lick their fingers AT ALL.
Defensive nor offensive players will be allowed to spit into their hands or on the ground for any reason.
The first violation of this will constitute a warning.
Any second violations will bring an infraction.
All catchers and offensive hitters are highly encouraged to clean their defensive/offensive helmets after every use or inning.
Players are highly encouraged to not practice head-first sliding into bases to minimize close contact on a tag play, however this is a suggestion and NOT a mandated rule.
Players are encouraged to sanitize their hands every inning upon returning to the dugout
Sunflower seeds will not be allowed in any facility.
Players will NOT be required to stay inside the dugout if they feel more comfortable outside the fence, however, all essential coaches will remain inside the fence and in the dugout during the course of their game.
There will be ABSOLUTELY NO warm up swings with a bat, by a player, outside the fence.
Players must be ready to take the on deck circle when the previous play is completed.
Extra time will not be awarded to a batter who is outside the fence and not ready to play.
PARENTS – There will NOT be an instituted spectator limit per player as we believe if everyone follows the guidelines below, we can accommodate everyone and give all family/friends the best opportunity to watch some great softball and have a wonderful experience – all the while being mindful of and adhering to social distancing.
All parents are strongly encouraged to bring their own chairs vs. sitting in the bleachers to allow for distance seating.
Face coverings for spectators and other individuals outside the field of play is not mandatory, but encouraged.
All families are highly encouraged to bring their own food and drinks to the ballpark.
All ice chests whether team or personal will be allowed.
There will be NO alcohol or glass containers allowed into the facilities.
Please refrain from entering the facility until the previous game on the field your team is set to compete on has concluded.
When your game is finished – please exit the facility through the designated area. Please DO NOT congregate and wait for your team to join you. This will allow for less “crowd-forming” as again – we all remain mindful of social distancing and allow for the next groups of spectators to enter the facility to enjoy their game.
Please wait for your team member OUTSIDE the gates of your facility when leaving the complex.
CSE TOURNAMENT STAFF – OUR PROMISE TO YOU
In an effort to be responsible and sensitive to all potential health concerns, all CSE staff will have their temperature taken upon entrance to their facilities each morning and verbally affirm that they are healthy and are not feeling symptomatic of COVID-19 or any other illness that could potentially affect themselves or others.
If any staff are found to have symptoms of COVID-19, they will be asked to leave the facility immediately and will not return for the entire event.
