The normal 10 minute warm-up, using a 2-4-4 format will be used for both the 1st match of the day AND for ALL BRACKET PLAY MATCHES. The first two minutes will be for ball handling on each team's half of the court, followed by 4 minutes on the court for the serving team and then 4 minutes for the receiving team.

POOL PLAY WARMUPS MODIFICATION: If both teams played the match immediately prior to their current match, there will be 2 minutes of shared court warm-up time and then the match begins. If one team played the match prior, but the other team did not, there will be 2 minutes of shared court warm-up time followed by 4 minutes on the court for the team that did NOT play the match prior, then the match begins.
