Regional Playoffs

2019 NCBBA Post-Season Format

The current format of the NCBBA Post-Season was decided upon by the member teams of the NCBBA via the NCBBA Annual League Meeting.

The 3 Regions which have been split into 3 directional conferences (New England, North Atlantic, Mid-Atlantic,  South Atlantic, Mid-America, and Southern Pacific) will feature each directional conference champion plus an at large bid selection chosen by the NCBBA from the 2nd place finishers.  The 1 Region which has been split into 2 directional conferences (Great Lakes) will feature each directional conference champion plus each directional conference runner up.

The 7 Regional Championships will take place during week 22 of the NCBBA Season and will be hosted by the directional conference winner that is ranked higher in the Phenom Elite NCBBA Top 20 Poll at that time.  The winners of the Regional Championships will automatically earn a spot in the 2019 NCBBA National Championship Tournament.

-Did the team finish in at least 2nd place in their conference?

-How did the team perform against their conference or regional champion?

-Is the team on probation?
