The Region will create pools using the rankings as a guideline. Note that the labels "Gold, Silver, etc." are only used to establish starting rankings for teams. If a team signs up for Bronze, but does very well in tournaments, that team’s rating will improve and it will play against better competition. Similarly a Gold team that does poorly will begin playing against worse competition. Two of the goals of the new system are to improve assignment of teams to divisions based upon their play and to increase the variety of opponents against which each team plays.
