    PLAYOFF CRITERIA

    How to qualify

    A team must have a winning percentage of at least:
    - 25-percent of overall games
    - 25-percent of league games
    - 25-percent of class games
    - 25-percent of class games, and above

    Note: Only games played within the NYS Federation (NYSPHSAA, CHSAA, PSAL and NYIS) will count towards seeding formula. Games against out-of-state opponents will not be counted.

    The formula

    - Every victory counts as FOUR points, regardless of class
    - Teams receive TWO bonus points for playing an opponent that finishes with a winning percentage of .750 and above by Feb. 13 (regardless if they win or lose). Opponents overall records will be counted.
    - Teams receive ONE bonus point for playing an opponent that finishes with a winning percentage between .500-.750 by Feb. 10 (regardless if they win or lose). Opponents overall records will be counted.
    - Once all points are tabulated, divide that sum by the total of games played against NYS Federation competition.

    Tiebreakers

    - Head to head

    - Bonus points earned

    - Winning percentage

    - Common opponent

    - Committee decision
