Also participating will be St. Johnsbury (Vermont), Concord (New Hampshire), Waterford (Connecticut), Pittsfield (western Massachusetts), Medford (eastern Massachusetts) and NP-S (Rhode Island).

Each team is guaranteed three games over the weekend. The top six teams remaining after the weekend move on to the championship bracket, beginning Monday and ending with the title game July 25.
