If there are:
7 teams – top team gets a bye
6 teams – top two teams get a bye
5 teams –top 4 teams play a semi and final
4 teams -semi and final
3 teams – top team gets a bye and plays the winner of 2nd vs 3rd
2 teams – one game final
1 team – that team moves on to their zone.
Note: Other sports may adopt a different format – see individual sport regulations or the specific sport web page for clarification. (I.E. Senior boys and girls soccer voted for league only-no play offs)

Zone Play offs. as of Nov. 2107- TO BE UPDATED AND CONFIRMED FOR FALL 2017 SPORTS. –
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.
