This event is our 5th annual Summer Smackdown event. Traditionally, there may be Friday morning/afternoon games as this is scheduled when school is completed. Whenever possible, we try to schedule as many teams closer to the venue in those Friday games and typically for 2 games Fri evening when possible, then a later Sat afternoon game unless an early Sat game is requested.

Awards: Top 2 teams in each division will pick up individual medals with team awards. Awards will consist of 12 champion and 12 finalist medals. If we have more than 12 teams in an age division, we will add 3rd place team and individual awards as well. Team awards may be a plaque or team banner.
Merchandise: There will be a merchandise pre-order for the event consisting of t-shirts. There may be a few items onsite for sale as well consisting of tournament merchandise and other items. After the event, teams will have the option to purchase customized champions merchandise from UTP.
