Tournaments

Post Season Play 2019

 

After the regular season, there are several championship opportunities for teams that qualify. First up are the Section Five Tournaments for four classes (A-B-C-D).

There are FOUR classes again this year.

In 2016, and after much debate, the NYSPHSAA reorganized the New York State Tournaments into four classes and so there will be four tournaments at both the sectional and state levels again this year. The last change occured in 2000 when the state moved from two to three classes.

Sectionals winners then compete for their regional championships in what some call the "State Quarterfinals".

Winners then play in the semi finals and finals to win the New York State Champions. The BLaxFive Calendar maps out the dates.

The Championships will be held right here in Section Five from 2017 through 2019. For visitors planning to attend the Championships, check out the Tournament Vistors page for lots of local information.


The Bracket page includes printable PDF files for each Class Tournament.
