  3. régional féminin : for girls playing in N3, regional et departmental.
  4. régional masculin : for boys playing in N3, regional et departmental.
    These 4 tournaments (n° 1, 2, 3 et 4) are played on 2 days (the 2nd and 3rd days of each resort). In principle, the 1st day, you will play in pools of 5 teams.
