Regional Playoffs

2020 NCBBA-W Post-Season Format

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

The 2 Regions which have been split into 2 directional conferences (New England and Mid-Atlantic) will feature each directional conference champion plus each directional conference runner up competing in a 4 team single elimination tournament for the Regional Title.  The 5 Regions that have NOT yet been split into directional conferences (North Atlantic, South Atlantic, Great Lakes, Mid-America, and Pacific) will feature the #1 team in the conference hosting the #2 team in the conference competing in a best of 3 series for the Regional Title.

The 7 Regional Championships will take place during week 22 of the NCBBA-W Season and will be hosted by the directional conference winner that is ranked higher in the Phenom Elite NCBBA-W Top 15 Poll at that time.  The winners of the Regional Championships will automatically earn a spot in the 2020 NCBBA-W 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?
