Number of games, location of tournaments and number of in-season weekly practices will be determined by each team’s coaching staff. Top Tier South puts an emphasis on development and practicing/training throughout the course of the season but we also want to make sure players are getting proper rest/time off in between team activities. Each team will have two practice slots, one indoor and one outdoor, each week that will be at their disposal to continue in season development. There may be weeks that teams may only practice once depending on their game schedule and tournament game schedules for that particular week.
