The Santa Barbara Showdown fall tournament, which takes place Oct. 14-15 at the Santa Barbara Polo Club in Carpinteria, posted its schedule on Tourney Machine late Monday.

The event features 17 divisions — eight boys and nine girls — with more than 120 teams playing in age groups ranging from Classes of 2026-27 (Grades 3-4) all the way up to high school varsity elite.

Tournament organizers included descriptions of each division in an effort to ensure clubs entered their various squads at the appropriate competition level. Those are included below, along with the teams entered in each division.
