Pony Tournament Teams
The OPRF Pony Tournament Teams are an extension of the House League. Players on the tournament teams must participate in the House League to be eligible to play tournament. There is no formal tryout for tournament. A registration application is submitted by players wishing to participate in the tournament program. Every effort is made to place players on a team. However, space is limited and only a certain number of players can be selected for tournament play.
Historically, OPRF Pony has fielded 3 tournament teams: a 14-year-old "national" team, a 13-year-old "national" team and a combined 13/14-year-old "local" team. The "national" teams are designated as such when the OPRF Pony Board decides to enter that team to compete in the Pony National tournament, which, if a team continues to advance, could result in a team competing in the Pony World Series. The "local" team will not participate in the pool play for Pony National. All three teams will play in local tournaments regardless of their "national" designation.
