Points based on placing and participation for each event will be accumulated throughout the year. At the conclusion of the Dallas Fall Invite, plaques for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place for each gender will be given out. In addition, the perpetual trophy will be past over to the annual 1st place team for each gender. If a tournament does not have a women’s specific division, there will be no points awarded for that event in the Women’s Division.
