Rankings FAQ

Rankings FAQ

How are the rankings determined?

Teams are ranked by all coaches in each region.  Ballots are averaged with the high and low vote for each team being dropped

Rankings conducted by the ranking committee will be based on a combination of the following criteria:
a. Head to head competition
b. Strength of schedule
c. Overall Record
d. Record vs. Ranked Teams (Top 5, Top 10)
e. Games with common opponents
f. Women’s Division 2 Record

 

What are the rankings used for?

The most important thing the rankings do is determine who will be invited to the national tournament. The final ranking of the season must be issued three weeks prior to the national tournament so that teams who are invited can make the appropriate travel arrangements. After the final ranking is issued, the Commissioner extends invitations to the National Championship.
