The Ted Brill Great 8 Festival consists of eight teams of the top high school players in Minnesota. Four teams are selected from senior players, and another four teams, referred to as HP 18’s, are determined from Junior players born in 2000. The senior and HP 18 teams will be formed according to paired high school sections (Sections 1 and 3, Sections 2 and 6, Sections 4 and 5, Sections 7 and 8).
The selected teams, consisting of 20 players each, will compete in three pool play games and one crossover game during the CCM High Performance Ted Brill Great 8 Festival. Games will played in two, 26-minutes halves with the winner receiving two points, and each team receiving one point for a tie. No overtimes will be played.
