Rankings FAQ

How are the rankings determined?

Teams are ranked by all ACHA Women's Division 1 coaches, 1-15 (15 maximum,) Ballots are averaged with the high and low vote for each team being dropped.

Ranking is based on a combination of the following criteria:
a -Overall Record
b -Strength of schedule
c -Record vs Ranked Teams (Top 5, Top 10)
d -Games with common opponents
e -Women's Division 1 Record
 
f.- Head to Head


What are the rankings used for?

The most important thing the rankings do is determine who will be invited to the national tournament. The final ranking of the season must be issued three weeks prior to the national tournament so that teams who are invited can make the appropriate travel arrangements. After the final ranking is issued, the Commissioner extends invitations to the National Championship.
