DIVISIONS BASED ON COMPETITIVE EQUITY
Proposal (Approved on Tuesday)
Starting with the 2016-2017 school year implement competition divisions based on competitive equity
in the sports of girls’ volleyball, football, water polo, basketball, baseball, softball and lacrosse. The
following are the parameters to be used in development of divisions based on competitive equity:

1. Competitive equity adjustments will be based on the most recent three-year period of
competition in the NCS Championships. Competitive equity adjustments for the 2016-2017
school year will include the 2013-2014, 2014-2015 and 2015-16 school years.
a. In subsequent years a new year is added and the oldest year of competitive data is
removed.

2. Any team averaging 8.0 or higher during the three-year period of competition in the NCS
Championships using the following scale would be required to move to the next higher
division.
a. 15 points for winning a section championship
b. 10 points for playing in the section championship contest
c. 6 points for playing in a semifinal game
d. 3 point for playing in a quarterfinal game
e. 1 point for entering the section championships as a champion or at-large team.

3. All teams promoted based on number two will be locked into the higher division.

4. No team will move more than one division from the previous year’s divisional assignment to
the current year’s divisional assignment.

5. Once promoted, points from a lower division will not be considered in a subsequent
promotion.

6. Once promoted, teams will leave the promoted division if they have less than 8 points earned
in all divisions in the last three years.

7. When a team is required to move to a higher division another team is in the higher division is
moved down to the next lower division. The criteria to determine which team(s) to move
down to the next lower division will be as follows:
a. The school in the higher division with the lowest point total under number two above
will be moved one division lower.
b. If there are teams tied with the lowest point total the tie will be broken by the
enrollment number of the school. The school with the lowest point total and smallest
enrollment would be moved to the next lower division.

8. Petitioning will be allowed to a higher division. The petitioning process will be conducted
according to the dates established by the Board of Managers. Petitioning process for the 2016-
2017 school year would be as follows:
a. March 1-31, 2016 – Fall Petitions are due to the NCS Office no later than March 31,
2016 (Due to the Board of Managers not meeting until April 5, 2016 NCS staff are
requesting that petitioning for the fall be conducted in the month of April)
b. October 1-31, 2016 – Winter Petitions are due to the NCS Office no later than October
31, 2016
c. January 2 – 31, 2017 – Spring Petitions due to the NCS Office no later than January 31,
2017.

9. When a team petitions to a higher division another team in the higher division is moved down
to the next lower division to maintain balance within the division. The criteria to determine
which team(s) to move will be as follows:
a. The school in the higher division with the lowest point total under number seven above
will be moved one division lower.
b. If there are teams tied with the lowest point total the tie will be broken by the
enrollment number of the school. The school with the lowest point total and smallest
enrollment would be moved to the next lower division.
