Due to the number of COVID-related cancellations we need to clarify how that affects using the QRF for seeding this year.
A COVID cancellation is treated the same as a forfeit - the game did not happen so it is not something that can be used to determine team strength. However we need to have a mathematically similar number of games played in order to compare teams so the already in place forfeit rules apply to COVID cancellations as well.
Sections must use Coaches Vote if:
- For Football - any team in the Section plays 4 or fewer games because of COVID or Forfeit
- For Volleyball - any team in the Section plays 9 or fewer matches because of COVID or Forfeit
If a team chooses to play fewer than 5 games (football) or 10 matches (volleyball) intentionally - you can use QRF to seed and those teams will be seeded at the bottom per the current rules.
The first QRF's calculated will be on 11/9 by 10 AM.
