League and Play off structure for NCAA – updated – April-2018

The NCAA will have Junior and Senior league and play off structures.

8 team leagues-everybody plays each other once, top two for NCAA title.  All teams break out for appropriate Zone Rep game (example Zone 4 AA).  Higher league position is the home team.

7 team leagues- everybody plays each other once, top two for NCAA title.  All teams break out for appropriate Zone Rep game (example Zone 4 AA).  Higher league position is the home team.

4 team leagues- everybody plays a home and home, top two NCAA title.  All teams break out for appropriate Zone Rep game (example Zone 4 AA).  Higher league position is the home team.

3 teams leagues every team plays each other twice, 1st gets a bye and plays the winner of 2nd vs 3rd

2 team leagues – league and exhibition games are played followed by a one game NCAA final

1 team leagues – exhibition games are played. The team moves on to their Zone Final.

*Leagues with fewer than 6 teams and unique circumstances may have the structure changed in order to accommodate due to weather, travel, safety (ex Slo Pitch, Baseball Football)

*A Zone rep game is needed to determine who will represent the NCAA for the Zone championship against the NRHSAA and SOSSA qualification

The Zone rep game is played if there is a second place team in that Zone and level and they accept the game being played: the team higher in the standings will be home (tiebreaker rule may be needed-see constitution). If the NCAA final is also the Zone rep game, that game will act as the Zone rep game. See your Program Chair of Cocurriculars for clarification.

 

Zone Play offs. as of Nov. 2017-  

The NRHSAA representative in each classification and zone will play the NCAA representative in each classification and zone. The winner of that game will be the zone champion and will go to SOSSA. If a second entry to SOSSA exists, then the second place finisher in the zone champion’s association may challenge the runner up in the zone final for the second entry into SOSSA. If a challenge game takes place then the runner up in the zone final will host the challenge game.

In odd starting school years, the NCAA will host boys’ zone championship games and the NRHSAA will host girls’ zone championship games.  In even starting school years, the NCAA will host girls’ zone championship games and the NRHSAA will host boys’ zone championship games. – As Nov. 2017

Any protests or sanctions in zone play will be examined by a joint NCAA/NRHSAA committee. This committee will be made up of 6 people, 3 from each association. A unanimous vote is needed to overturn any decision. Protests must be made immediately after the game on the game sheet. A meeting will be held then next morning. A fee of $50 (2 cheques:1 for $25 to NCDSB-Attention:NCAA + 1 for $25 to NRHSAA) must be accompanied with the protest.

If there are 2 spots to SOSSA, there may be a challenge game. Coaches will be notified.

Note: Individual sports remain the same with an extra NCAA meet prior to Zone. You must participate at NCAA to move on to zone (There may be certain situations that allow athletes to move on to zone without participation in the qualifier. There must be an agreement between NRHSAA and NCAA for this to take place). Some Individual sports may have limits or standards imposed. Please see individual regulations for those numbers.
