GAME SCORING & SEEDING POINTS

  • All teams Must Play a minimum # of games for playoff eligibility - 8 (Spring & Fall) & 12 (Summer) - exceptions made in extreme circumstances (Weather, team advancing deep into regional tournaments)
  • All teams who play the minimum # of games - regardless of record - have right to enter playoff tournament at conclusion of regular season. ¬†Please contact league office - theghvbl@gmail.com - if you do not intend to participate.
  • In the event of a forfeit - winning team earns "win" and points, losing team does not get a game in standings and will get 0 points.

 

8U - 14U Playoff Seeding is based on a weighted system:

  • Win in age group & division = 5 points toward your final playoff seeding
  • Win in age group = B team beats A or A beats Elite - 6 points
  • Win in age group = A beats B or Elite beats A - 4 points

We do not encourage cross age group play in the 8U - 14U divisions.  If you play these games - here are the seed points:

  • Win in higher age group = 4 points toward your final playoff seeding
  • Win in lower age group = 3 points toward your final playoff seeding
  • Ties = 2 points
  • Losses = 1 point
  • For 8U - 14U - first 12 games completed (Spring & Fall) and 16 games completed (Summer) earn seed points.

 

15U - 17U Playoff Seeding is based on a weighted system:

  • We encourage high school age teams playing cross age groups - 15U may play 16U teams, 16U may play 17U teams.
  • We would like to avoid the 15U playing 17U teams - but it is OK if a team needs the games to fill out the schedule.
Here will be the point system for 15U - 17U age groups:
  • Win in age group & division = 5 points toward your final playoff seeding
  • Win in age group - B beats A = 6 points
  • Win in age group - A beats B = 4 points

 

  • Win outside age group = Younger beats Older - 7 points
  • Win outside age group = Older beats younger - 3 points
  • Ties = 2 points
  • Losses = 1 point
