Illinois State Championship Tournaments

General Information

Due to the increase in the number of Illinois teams there will  be three Illinois Championship tournaments for the Hydro Dynamics season.  :  two tournaments will be held in Northern Illinois and one in Central Illinois.  Approximately 25% of the teams participating at a qualifying event in Illinois will advance to a championship tournament.  

The Tesla Championship tournament  at the University of Illinois in Champaign will be a 50-team event.  The Einstein and Hopper Championship Tournament  at Elgin Community College will be a 50-team events.  To enable a team advancement rate of 25% from all of our qualifiers and provide the highest quality tournament experience at each championship event, we may ask  teams from the central and soutehrn qualifiers to volunteer to attend one of the championships in the northern region.. We ask coaches to please consult with your team members to determine if you can attend the one of the northern championship tournaments should your team advance.  

If your team is advancing to one of the Championship Tournaments you will be required to register for the Championship event Here.  There is no additional charge for attending the Championship events.  Advancing teams from the central or southern qualifiers that would like to volunteer to attend the northern championships in Elgin should make their intention known by checking off the appropriate boxes on the registration form.  All registrations must be submitted no later than midnight on Wednesday, December 27th. 

Weather contingency plans: The Tesla Championship  tournament at the Univeristy of Illinois in Champaign will be held unless the University of Illinois closes the facility. The Einstein and Hopper Championship tournaments at Elgin Community College will be held unless the college closes the facility.  

In the unlikely event that we have to cancel a tournament, teams will be notified by email to the Announcement List and a notice will be posted on this page of our website no later than 7AM  on the day of the tournament. We will not be able to re-schedule the event. Please use your best judgment about whether to travel in inclement weather.  If you are not able to attend, please notify us by sending an email to contactfllillinois@gmail.com or calling 847-293-7706.   If an event is cancelled, a team will be selected to attend any post season events by a random pull from teams that were scheduled to attend the tournament and that also won the Champion’s award at their qualifiers.
