FIYA PING PONG

2020-21 Ping Pong Tournaments

FIYA Ping Pong will be resuming in the 2020-21 school year! This year we are offering TWO (2) co-ed ping pong tournaments open to any and all Los Angeles student-athletes in grades 5th-8th. For any FIYA tournament event including ping pong, students may participate on behalf of their school individually or with a team as long as they are registered by a school official. 

Our first  tournament is scheduled for October 13th following with our second tournament on December 11th. 

Please check back to this page shortly for more updates and important information regarding our future ping pong tournaments and events. Feel free to email us at info@onfiya.org with any questions or interests! 

 

NOTE REGARDING COVID-19: We are planning for a full year of FIYA sports in 2020-2021, but it is subject to change and revisions may be implemented based on any government restrictions or other issues related to COVID-19. Consequently, if any currently scheduled event is to be cancelled, payments for FIYA leagues and tournaments will be reimbursed in full to registered schools.

    • TEAM: No separate team competition, but team points can be earned based on individual results. A team consists of three players from a school; for a school with more than 3 only their top 3 finishers count towards team score. A point is earned for each round advanced in championship tournament play with a bonus point awarded to the final champion.
    • AWARDS: Awards will be given to top team and individual finishers based on number of participants.

 

As part of our vision, we're grateful to be offering an additional sport to our student athletes to explore because we believe every child should have the equal opportunity to participate in school sports, regardless of their athletic background or skill-level. Every child deserves to excell inside and outside of the classroom, and we recognize FIYA is fortunate to be one of the platforms for them to do so. GET PRACTICING and we look forward to seeing you there!
