Play off structure for NCAA
The NCAA will have a Junior and Senior league and play off structure.
The top 2 Junior and Senior NCAA teams make the play offs with the winner being champion.
Othere sports may adopt a different format – see individual sport regulations or the sport web page for clarification.
NEW- MARCH 2017 – LEAGUES CAN ALTER THE LEAGUE AND OR PLAY OFF STRUCTURE (I.E. GIRLS AND SENIOR BOYS SOCCER-no play offs)
League and Play off structure NCAA to Zone
As of June 22nd 2017- to be updated by September 2017
NCAA leagues for Boys Volleyball and Girls Basketball will be 7 games (others TBC) – If there is only 1 Team from NRHSAA in Zone , there will be a one game play-off game if both teams fail to make the NCAA final. If one makes it to NCAA, there will be no playoff game, if they both make the final, that game will determine the zone winner too.
Jr. Zone 3 will have AA reps only; Sr Zone 3 will have AA and AAA reps.
Jr. Zone 4 will have A and AA reps, Sr. Zone 4 will have AA and AAA reps.
Zone Play offs.
There will still be a Zone 3 and 4 championship based on Zone and size of schools. If there is a tie to determine play offs, we will look at play off results, final league standings, then all tie breakers from the constitution.
The top two teams in the NCAA and NRHSAA in each category and zone will then cross over and play 1st vs. 2nd where first is home. If there is only one team from either NCAA or NRHSAA, then it will be NCAA 1st vs. NRHSAA 1st .
In cases of 1st NCAA vs. 1st NRHSAA., there will be a yearly rotation for home. In 2017-18 the NCAA will host 1st vs 1st boys sports, the NRHSAA will host 1st vs 1st female sports. We will rotate this every year. Only in the case of 1st NCAA vs 1st NRHSAA do we apply the rotation.
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 vote of 60 percent or more 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 SOSSA spots, there may be a challenge game. Coaches will be notified.
Note: Individual sports remain the same with an extra NCAA meet prior to Zone.
