Holiday 5v5 Scramble 2012

ISC HOLIDAY 5v5 SCRAMBLE-Friday, December 28, 2012

EVENT OVERVIEW

Beat the boredom of your winter break and come out and play soccer!  For our ISC Advanced Year Round Competitive Players we will be holding a fun, intra club event on Friday, December 28, 2012.  We will have divisions for all of our players, U9-U18, and of course also for our Alumni who are still an important part of the club.  The event will be held at the Hawkeye Tennis and Recreation Center.  Parents need to e-mail Jon Cook at jon.cook@iowasoccerclub.com to sign up for the event.  For players U15 and older, players should e-mail Jon directly.  

WHAT IS A SCRAMBLE TOURNAMENT?

Players sign up as individuals and they are placed on different teams for each game.  In this particular event, the players will each player in 5 games.  We will enter the list of players that have entered into an online "randomizing" program and the program will give us 5 different random assignments for each player.  Therefore, for each game, each player will play with a slightly differnet assignment of players.  The assignments are completely random and none of the ISC staff members influenced the assignments at all.  

SO HOW DOES SCORING WORK FOR A SCRAMBLE TOURNAMENT? 

Each player will play in 5 games.  Therefore, each player has 5 opportunities to earn points.  If your team wins a game, you will be awarded 3 points for the game.  If your team ties the game, you will be awarded 1 point for the game.  If your team loses the game, you will not earn any points for the game.  If your team wins a game by a goal differential of 5 goals or more, you will be awarded 4 points for the game.  At the end of the 5 games for all players, we will post the top 10 players with the most points.  

Scramble tournaments require the players to work with different players each game and take on different roles in each game for a common purpose to earn points together.  After each game is finished, the players are re-assigned to a different team and they have to work with this new group to help each other out.  While the end results show how each individual performed in terms of total points earned, that score is really a measure of how well they worked with each team assignment that they were given.  

SUMMARY OF POINT SCORING SYSTEM:

4 POINTS-Are awarded if that player's team won by a goal differential of 5 goals or more

3 POINTS-Are awarded if that players' team won the game.

1 POINT-Is awarded if that player's team tied the game.

0 POINTS-are awareded if that palyer's team lost the game.
