VARSTIY BOYS SOCCER TOURNAMENT REGULATIONS
The 2014 Varsity Boy’s Soccer Tournament will be seeded at a meeting at Scotch Plains-Fanwood High School on Monday October 6stat 7:00 PM. We ask that a representative from each school be present to participate in the seeding process.
The process for seeding the Varsity tournament is as follows:
1Packets will be available with each team’s game history for review.
2Each school representative will be given about 2 minutes to discuss their team’s performance this season. Bad mouthing other programs will not be tolerated.
3Each school representative will then be given a form to rank each team; the top team being number 1 and working down.
4The Athletic Directors in charge will then tabulate the results. The team receiving the lowest point total being the 1st seed and the continuing down until the last team is seeded.
5If there is a point total tie this criteria will be used:
- A head to head meeting – The winner will receive the higher seed.
- The coaches will vote on how the teams will be seeded.
6All seeding forms must be signed by the school representative and with the school’s name.
