Special Schedule Notes

  • The tournament is not seeded by ability, since there is no equitable means to determine the respective strength of the teams. Too few teams play outside of their division schedules to create an accurate seeding.  Match-ups are therefore based upon the 2018 National Collegiate Club Championship results by division. The host region receives two automatic bids, one of which is assumed by the division champion and the other by the host site or division runner-up (the 16th position). This ensures the tournament host is always a participant.
  • Seeding for positions No. 1-11 are based on the results of the 2018 Men’s National Collegiate Club Championship.  As ties for the 13th and 15th positions in the final standings are not played out, the No. 12 and 13 positions are awarded by random draw to the New York and Atlantic Divisions.  The No. 14-15 positions awarded to the  Northwest and Southeast Divisions also be random draw.
  • Teams listed first wear dark caps and are home on the scoreboard.  The host team always wears dark caps and is listed first on the scoreboard regardless of seed.
