Diocese Varsity Playoffs - Class A and Class B
Updated February 12, 2021

Overview

Because of COVID-19, there are a few changes for the 2020-2021 post-season Varsity Boys Diocesan Playoffs. The Section Representative Committee has developed this plan for eligible teams in Class A and Class B. Because there may be schedule interruptions and teams unable to complete make-up games, all teams in the four playoff eligible sections will qualify for the playoffs.

The Diocese Varsity Class A and Class B playoffs have up to five rounds of play in each class. The number of teams determines the number of rounds in each class.

The Section Representative Committee will complete the brackets and pairings. If there is the need for modification to the brackets or pairings (dates, times, teams, etc.), the decision of the Tournament Director will be final. In the opening rounds, the higher seeded teams will play at home for all games prior to the Semi-Finals. Teams will play the Semi-Finals and Finals championship games at North Catholic High School (1617 PA-228, Cranberry Twp. 16066).

Any team that cannot play a scheduled playoff game because of COVID-19 or other reasons will forfeit the game and the opposing team will move on in the tournament.

Important Diocese Playoff Dates:
 
Friday, March 5 Complete ALL league section games
Saturday, March 6 Section Representative Committee determines pairings
Monday, March 8 - Tuesday, March 16 Complete ALL First and Second Round games
Thursday, March 18 - Friday March 19 Semi-Finals*
Sunday, March 21 Finals*
* Subject to change based on gym availability

Diocese Guidelines - Building Manager and Good Sportsmanship

All teams, game officials, and spectators must follow all Diocese mandated attendance and health and safety rules. The home team for the first and second round games must allow the same number of attendees (tickets) for each school. This same attendance guideline, if needed to follow health mandates, will also apply for the Semi-Finals and Finals.

As was required during section play, and to ensure the most positive competitive atmosphere along with good sportsmanship and behavior of all fans, the Building Manager must be present during the game and at the pre-game officials meeting with the coaches and team captains. The home team must always have a designated Building Manager in attendance for the home games in the first and second rounds. A Building Manager for each team must be in attendance at all times for the Semi-Finals and Finals.
