Note though, that most teams will finish by 4pm or 5pm, depending on whether they do not make the playoffs, or play a Round 6, but not a Round 7. The exact time of schedule (i.e. single round robin, double round robin, some inclusion of crossover games between teams in different age divisions, etc.) is a function of how many teams sign up for each age division at any given tournament. International Academic Competitions always strives to have the fairest schedule and tournament format possible. The exact schedule and format for each tournament will be posted on each tournament’s website and sent out in a pre-tournament email to all registered schools in the week before the tournament takes place.
