2020 Season Playoff Overview

JV - The top six (6) teams from each Section will make the playoffs.
 
Varsity - The top eight (8) teams from each Section will make the playoffs.
 
If two (2) teams in a Section have the same record, the winner of their regular season head-to-head match will be the higher seed.
 
If three (3) teams in a Section have the same record, the winner of both head-to-head matches will be the highest seed, and the loser of both head-to-head matches will be the lowest seed.
 
If three (3) teams in the Section have the same record AND A beat B, B Beat C, & C beat A (i.e., a bonafide three-way tie), the League Director will determine the seeding of those three (3) teams.
 
However, if the bonafide three-way tie in a Section is for either first place, or the final playoff spot, then those teams will play a round-robin tiebreaker match on Thursday, November 12, to determine the final seeding of each team. If a team is unable to play on Thursday, November 12, then that team will receive the lowest seed, and the winner of the regular season head-to-head match between the remaining two teams will receive the highest seed.
 
Teams will be placed in the brackets according to their seed in the Section. That said, the League Director reserves the right to "adjust" the seedings to avoid teams from the same school playing each other in the 1st or 2nd round of the playoffs.
 
1st Round Playoff Matches will take place on Saturday (November 14).
2nd Round Playoff Matches will take place on Sunday (November 15).
JV Final Four will take place on Monday (November 16) at Our Lady of Grace.
Varsity Final Four will take place on Wednesday (November 18) at Our Lady of Grace.
 
The League Director reserves the right to modify the above schedule/dates on a case-by-case basis. For example, if two (2) teams are coached by the same head coach then accommodations will be made so that they can coach both teams in the playoffs. Most likely those accommodations will be varying the start times of the Saturday and Sunday matches, and potentially varying the dates of the Monday and/or Wednesday matches.
 
The League Director will determine the venues for the playoff matches as we get closer to the start of the playoffs. The venue must meet certain requirements in order to qualify for hosting a playoff match.
  1. There is at least six (6) feet of open area beyond both end lines for the server to stand in.

  2. There is at least four (4) feet of playable area on both sides of the court.

  3. The ceiling is of sufficient height to allow proper three-hit play (the League Director has sole discretion on this topic).

  4. Their gym is available on the designated date.


For playoffs, the fee for the official(s) is $20 per match. The host school will pay 100% of the fees for all matches played at their school (regardless if they have a team playing in each match). So $60 total for Saturday host schools and $40 total for Sunday host schools. The host school will keep all proceeds from admissions, 50/50 raffles, and concessions. If a Varsity match has two (2) officials, the League will cover the cost of the second official. The League will run the gate and pay the officials for the Final Four at Our Lady of Grace.
 

Playoff Seeding - once the Playoff Brackets are established, there will not be any re-seeding of teams based on prior round results.
