Event Seedings and Player Information for 2009 JIT

USA Badminton -  February 2, 2009

The event seedings for the 2009 Junior International Trials (JIT) on February 14th-16th at Affinity Badminton Club can be viewed by clicking on the following link:  EVENT SEEDINGS.  Any questions/challenges concerning the seedings must be made in writing to both Fred Coleman (Chairman of USAB Juniors Committee) at fcoleman@facstaff.wisc.edu, and to Chris Lawrence (JIT Tournament Director) at CCclawrence@aol.com, by Saturday February 7th.

All JIT players and parents should take note of the following:

1.   Per USAB Trials Regulations, all events will commence with round robin group play, followed by elimination round play-offs (for events with more than six players / pairs).

2.   Due to the large entry, the playing start-time for each day will be 8.30 am and not 9.00 am as previously published. The playing times for each day are as follows:

Friday February 13th                6.00 pm - 11.00 pm               Registration and practice

Saturday February 14th           8.30 am - 11.00 pm                Tournament play

Sunday February 15th              8.30 am - 11.00 pm               Tournament play

Monday February 16th             8.30 am - 5.00 pm                   Tournament play

3.   All players should be available to play during all of the hours listed above (plan your flights accordingly!). Due to the large number of matches and the tight time schedule, it is unlikely that requests for retiming of matches will be able to be accommodated.

4.   The draws with match times will be posted on http://www.usabadminton.org/ and / or on http://www.tournamentsoftware.com/ on Tuesday February 10th.

Any questions should be directed to Chris Lawrence at CCclawrence@aol.com
