8/27/12 – Reminder 3 Team Districts Mandatory Seeding

August 27, 2012 Volleyball Blog Updates

This is a reminder to teams in three team districts the mandatory seeding procedure adopted by the Board of Control.  There is no option to vote to use an alternate plan in a three team district.  This is also addressed in the online Rules Clinic viewed by coaches.  Below is the seeding procedure:

For district tournaments with three teams, the district tournament shall be seeded in accordance with the following three-team seeding regulations:
1) Each team in a three-team district is required to play the other two teams in the district         in two contests each year, at mutually agreed sites. These games will produce a uniform means of ranking the teams by seed within these districts.
2) The team with the highest seed (one seed) receives a bye in the district tournament, and advances to the championship game.
3) The remaining two teams would play in the ?rst round of the district tournament with the loser of that game being eliminated.
4) In the case of a two-way tie for the district winning position, the winner in the second game played between the tied district opponents would have the higher ? nishing position.
5) In the case of a three-way tie for the district winning position, the tie would be resolved in the following manner. If any of the tie-breakers results in one of the teams being ahead of the
other two, the tie is broken. If any of the tie-breakers result in two teams remaining ahead of the third, then the two-way tie breaker shall be used to determine the winner between those
two.
a) The tie-breaking mechanisms (in order) shall be:
i) If the tie remains between all three teams, the record in the second game played against all district opponents involved in the tie.
ii) If the tie remains between all three teams, the record in the ?rst game played against all district opponents involved in the tie.
iii) If the tie remains between all three teams, then the total points allowed in all seeded games shall be the next tiebreaker.
iv) If the tie remains between all three teams, then the total points allowed in the second of each of the seeded games shall be the next tie-breaker.
v) If the tie is still unbreakable, then a blind draw among the three teams shall break the tie.
b) Additional tie-breaking mechanisms could be added, and would be uniform for all three-team districts.
