QualificationsFor 1997-98 the six participating teams would include first and second place from the AUAA, first place from the OUA East, first place from OUA West, first place from CWUAA, and the host University of Saskatchewan. The six teams will be divided into two pools of three utilizing the last regular season top ten ranking. Pool 'A' includes teams seeded #1, #4 and #5 with Pool 'B' including teams seeded #2, #3 and #6. The host Saskatchewan will play Thursday and Saturday evening regardless of their seeding.
Windsor was ranked lower than UQTR. Due to these rankings, Windsor was in the same pool as UQTR and subsequently placed Alberta and Saskatchewan in the same pool. The tournament committe swapped Alberta and UQTR. This also spurred the creation of 'Pool Rules' for later tournaments.
