Download and fill out the Tournament Record and Roster forms completely.  Be sure to take advantage of the "Game Highlight" area and then use the space at the bottom of the form to tell us why your team deserves a top seed!  Email the forms back to the OCSAA by the appointed date and time.

How to fill out, save and email your forms: Download the Microsoft Document form (.doc) and "enable it to be edited" within your Microsoft Word program.  Type in the appropriate information and save your completed form in the same microsoft word document file to be emailed back to the OCSAA.  Please include your school, tournament year and form name, in the document name. Example: 2015templerecordform.doc  Attach your properly named .doc file to an email and send it to info@ohiocsaa.org  Please do not download, print and hand write your forms and do not save and send them as .pdf files.

How to cast your seeding vote: Download the record and roster forms located on the "Record & Roster" link of our website.  Carefully consider all of the information contained in those files (you may want input from coaches, opponents or even an online search to find out more about each tournament team), then click the "Seed Teams Now" link found on the "Seeding" page. Seed the teams in the order you believe they've earned.  This will only work if the Athletic Directors or designated representative from each member school do their best to seed accurately based on what each team has earned.  Not on whether it is your school or based on desired matchups etc.  We are a "Christian" association and our honest effort at seeding should reflect those values!  Keep in mind that this is a "TRANSPARENT" process.  All members will know who voted for whom and what seeding rank they were given.  This helps ensure a fair bracket. Any member participating in the tournament, may call the OCSAA office and request specific voting information.
 

OCSAA SEEDING CRITERIA

  • How many points per game do they score

  • How many points per game do they allow

  • How many games have they won

  • What is their average margin of victory
