October 25, 2014 Seeding Meeting
Seeding Criteria

Seeding and pairings will be determined at this meeting based upon the win-tie-loss points and percentages of each participating teams (see below). Teams must play 10 games or seeding percentage will be halved. All game contracts/commitments between KSHSAA-member schools in soccer, either written or otherwise, shall be honored.
Use the following to determine the points for each team when seeding the bracket:

  • 2 points for a win
  • 1 point for a tie
  • 0 points for a loss

Note: Games must be against varsity competition to count for purposes of seeding percentage. After determining the total points earned, divide that number by the maximum points possible of games actually played times 2 (carry to the third decimal point) to figure the percentage.

If two teams have an identical percentage, the tie will be broken as follows:

  1. If the teams played each other, the one defeating the other a larger number of times will receive the higher seed. If after they have played each other and each has defeated the other team under consideration an identical number of times, the team with the most wins will receive the higher seed.
  2. If the teams did not play each other, the team with the most wins will receive the higher seed.
  3. If the tie still remains, then a coin will be tossed to determine the team receiving the higher seed.

If three teams are tied with an identical percentage, the tie will be broken as follows:

  1. If one team won over all the other tied teams, or has a winning record over all the other tied teams, it shall receive the higher seed. The two remaining tied teams will revert to the procedure used for two tied teams.
  2. If one team has lost to each of the other teams, that team shall be dropped from the tie-breaking procedure. The two remaining teams will revert to the procedure used for two tied teams.
  3. If the above procedure did not break the tie, the teams with the most wins shall receive the higher seeds.
  4. If the tie still remains, a drawing by lot will determine the teams receiving the higher seeds.

If four teams are tied with an identical percentage, the tie will be broken as follows:

  1. If one team won over all the other tied teams, or has a winning record over all tied teams, it shall receive the higher seed. The three remaining tied teams will revert to the procedure used for three tied teams.
  2. If the above procedure did not break the tie, the teams with the most wins will receive the higher seeds.
  3. If the tie still remains, a drawing by lot will determine the teams receiving the higher seeds.

The principal or his/her designee should attend the seeding meeting so that tickets and plaques may be distributed to regional tournament host schools. Be sure to supply the seeding meeting host with an up-to-date win-loss-tie record as of the day of the seeding meeting, prior to 10 a.m. and fax a copy to KSHSAA at 785-271-0236.

After the seeding has taken place, teams will be placed in regionals, depending upon the number of teams in each section. The host schools for the regionals in each section will be the top seeds in each section.
