Work out the stages of the tournaments by establishing a first knockout stage. This is determined by either a draw or any standings the teams have already established in a regular season. If there are an odd number of teams, give one team a bye in the first round or establish a group stage of games to determine who plays in the tournament. Create a visible bracket with poster board or purchase a dry erase bracket from a sporting goods store and post it at the entrance of the facility. The winners of each bracket play each other until there are only two teams left in a final game.

Purchase trophies to distribute to the top three or four teams after the final in a presentation ceremony. Medals or small trophies are appropriate for any other awards, such as high scorer, most valuable player or all-around sportsman. Clean up the facility and collect all equipment once everyone leaves.
