SILVER - Teams at or around the .500 mark in record/winning percentage. You may have a mix of players from different areas. You have won a tournament of 4+ teams in the past, but not on a regular basis. You take occasional regional trips, but play mostly local games. Most teams will classify at this level.
GOLD - Teams that consistently win against teams of the same level with an overall record/winning percentage of .625 or better. These teams have won 2 or more tournaments or have reached tournament championships on a consistent basis. You typically have 4-5 regional or national travel trips per year and expect to finish in the upper tier of those events.
