THE REGION RANKINGS ARE BASED ON THE RESULTS OF THE REGIONAL QUALIFYING TOURNAMENTS.
The Region believes the better a team performs the more they should be challenged. A good criteria for the club is to request a division in which the team should finish at least in the bottom of gold or top of silver. The goal should be “make” gold! DO NOT enter a division just for rankings. Finishing at the bottom is not better for rankings or the kids confidence. The team results overlap in ranking so that a finish in the bottom of a division is not necessarily better than a high finish in the next lower division.
The “Division” format will be used in all SURVA Bid Qualifiers, but will not be used in the Region BID Championships. However, this format will affect the Region seedings for the Region Championships! That means the teams who compete within higher “DIVISIONS” & finish in the upper seventy five percent will be given a higher ranking within their own age division. The team having the highest ranking within a preceding “DIVISION” or preceding “DIVISIONS” will be considered the highest seeded team in their appropriate division. The team having the lowest ranking within a following “DIVISION” or following “DIVISIONS” will be considered the lowest seeded team in their appropriate division.
Finishing higher than other Region teams in outside of Region competition is not considered as we don’t know the seeding criteria used or quality of competition.
SEEDING FOR TOURNAMENTS: Tournaments, with the exception of the Championships, are seeded by results from all tournaments within the Region such as the Qualifiers, One Day and Inter-Regional Tournaments. Each Region Qualifying Tournament result is weighted by the number of teams participating in each respective division.
The SURVA NATIONAL BID CHAMPIONSHIPS are seeded by the final Region rankings in that age group.
