Tournament Seeding Procedure

Seeding for the Section Five Tournaments is based on a "power rating" which is based on the final win-loss records of the teams played.

Points earned are based on the win/loss percentage of each opponent at the end of the season. A team that has won 75% of its games gives its opponent 10 points for a win or 4 points for a loss. A team under 75% but at least 50% gives 8 points for a win and 3 points for a loss.A team under 50% but at least 25% gives 6 points for a win and 2 points for a loss. Finally, a team under 25% gives 4 points for a win and 1 point for a loss.

The number of points earned by a team are then added up and divided by the number of games played so as to find the average points per game. The teams with the highest averages are entered in the tournament.
