 FIYA PING PONG PROGRAM DETAILS 

Similar to our Cross Country program, in FIYA Ping Pong, students are able to compete on behalf of their school as independent athletes or as part of a team. Please read details below. 

 

  • Open to ALL students 5th Grade – 8th Grade, with entry limited
    • COST: $10/participant for FIYA Member schools, $12.50/participant for non-member schools. Payment can be made on day of event.

 

  •  FORMAT: 
    • RULES: Our Ping Pong Tournament Rules and how we run our events can be found in the links to the right under "Ping Pong Information". Please make sure to check it out prior to the day of the tournament so you can prepare your student-athletes accordingly. 
    • INDIVIDUAL: Pool play followed by tournament bracket. Each player guaranteed three games. Exact format TBD based on participation numbers. If sufficient numbers, participants will be broken up into Boys/Girls & D-1/D-2
    • TEAM: No separate team competition, but team points can be earned based on individual results. A team consists of three players from a school; for a school with more than 3 only their top 3 finishers count towards team score. A point is earned for each round advanced in championship tournament play with a bonus point awarded to the final champion.
    • AWARDS: Awards will be given to top team and individual finishers based on number of participants.

 

As part of our vision, we're grateful to be offering an additional sport to our student athletes to explore because we believe every child should have the equal opportunity to participate in school sports, regardless of their athletic background or skill-level. Every child deserves to excell inside and outside of the classroom, and we recognize FIYA is fortunate to be one of the platforms for them to do so. GET PRACTICING and we look forward to seeing you there!
