Appalachian Duals Format

Mat Time - Variety - Excitement

Day 1 - Pools

On Day 1, each team is placed in a pool of four teams and will compete in three dual meets.  The teams stay on the same mat for all six rounds of pool competition.  Occasionally, the final dual of a pool may be moved if another mat becomes available early.  Seeding is used to place teams into pools with consideration given to separate common opponents.

Day 2 - Brackets

On Day 2, the teams compete in bracketed double-elimination dual competition.  Two eight-team brackets are organized based on how your team finished in Day 1 pool competition.  The top two teams from each bracket compete in the championship bracket and the bottom two teams from each pool compete in the consolation bracket.
