With the adoption of the Sportifik platform, the IM Rating System listed below is no longer in effect. In general, division standings are determined by a team’s won/loss record (points total for Soccer). To break ties, head-to-head results are used, followed by sportsmanship average, and various offensive and defensive points metrics.
Division standings will be based on how well you fare within your league (Wins/Points/Winning%).
In most cases, the top two teams in each division who do not have any forfeits – “no shows” – and have a FairPlay rating (sportsmanship score) of 3.5 or better will advance to the playoffs. Any wildcard teams taken above and beyond the top two will based on Rating score. The number of teams and playoff format is subject to change from season to season. Check the posted brackets (after week two) for playoff format and number of teams that will advance in each sport.
“REC” divisions are recreational leagues reserved for recreational teams. Participation is emphasized over keeping score and winning. There are no playoffs or prizes for “REC” divisions.
Your team’s rating score is determined by averaging the amount of bonus points your team receives for each game. Bonus points are awarded in four categories: Wins, FairPlay, Offense, and Defense.
Review the ratings sheet for your sport to determine how this score is calcualted.
1. Head to Head between tied teams*
2. Rating Score*
3. Coin Flip*
*Only one team can advance to the playoffs in any tie-breaking step. Remaining tied teams revert to the first step of the tiebreakers. As an example, if two teams remain tied in any tiebreaker step after all other teams have been eliminated, the procedure reverts to Step 1 to determine the winner. When one team wins the tiebreaker, all other teams revert to Step 1.
