Tournament Directors of a sanctioned ESDAA tournament will strictly follow the guidelines that are established in the Constitution. No non-ESDAA members will be invited to compete unless other teams are needed to fill out the brackets and to facilitate a smooth-running tournament.
Non-member teams will be notified that their participation will be on an "exhibition only" basis and they will not compete for the tournament championship trophy. Tournament Directors will seed teams and make out the brackets so that only ESDAA Teams are vying for the championship. A "participation" trophy will be awarded to non-member schools in recognition of their joining the tournament. Non-member schools will be encouraged to participate in all tournament activities and can win any or all awards associated with those activities.
