A total of seven teams will compete in the 10 and up bracket, with another nine teams in the 12 and up age bracket. A champion will be crowned in both of the divisions.

The games will begin at 6 p.m. on Thursday, with additional games on Friday and Saturday. If necessary, the finals will be played the afternoon on Sunday, May 28.

Serving as the tournament director is Billy Joe Seal.
