Championship Tie Break Procedure

 From the SCIAA Constitution and Bylaws

103.2 Tie Breaking Procedure

a. Head-to-Head competition in league play. If teams have played each other during the season, the outcome of these games will resolve the tie.

b. If a tie remains after (a), the tiebreaker will be determined by how teams have done against the next highest seeded teams in their respective league: 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, etc.

c. If the tie remains after (a) and (b), the overall win-loss record against teams within that classification will be used to break the tie. This only includes games played in your classification with member teams of TSSAA.

d. If the tie remains after (a), (b), and (c), the best overall record will be used to break the tie. The best overall record includes games and tournaments with all teams associated with the National

Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS). Scheduled games must be on an Official SCIAA schedule to count for championship purposes.

e. If a tie remains, a coin will be tossed. A draw will be used to determine who will call the coin toss

COVID – 19 recommendations

Masks should be worn whenever possible.

Social distancing and the use of pods is highly recommended.

Sanitize equipment regularly, and limit shared equipment.

During the fall, we had many Covid-19 postponements for outdoor sports. Continue to be diligent about protocols to limit exposure within your team to lessen the chances of your season being impacted.
