Classification of Teams and Determination of Rankings for Finals

The primary ranking of teams shall be based on Game Ratio, and then based Points according to their win – loss records.

3 Points for a win, 2 Points for a draw, 1 point for a loss, 0 points for a game lost by forfeit

Before proceeding to the below, if all teams that are equal on ‘Game Ratio’ then ‘Points’, have not played each other, then the ranking will go straight to ‘Point Difference’ taking into account the results of all games

If there are two teams equal, the result(s) of the game(s) between the two teams involved will be used to determine the placing (Head to Head). In the event that this does not split the two teams, the classification will be determined by Points Difference taking into account the results of all games played by both teams.

If more than two teams are equal, a classification will be established taking into account only the results of the games between the teams that are tied.

In the event that there are still teams tied after the second classification, then points difference will be used to determine the placing, taking into account only the results between the teams that are tied.

If there are still teams tied, the placing shall be determined using percentage from the results of all their games played

Points difference is calculated by points scored for, minus points scored against.


Finals Qualifications (Team and Players)

To qualify for finals a player must take part in at least two (2) games with the team concerned. A final is any game, in which the teams playing are specified by position on the ladder rather than by name. Participation of an unqualified player in a final, will result in a forfeit by the offending team.

Players may play in more than one age group provided that they do not play in a lower grade in a lower age group. e.g. 16A players cannot play 14B, but 14A players may play 16B. No player may play in two (2) teams in the same age group. The penalty is automatic loss of points for the games in which the offence occurred. Any player who played for their state at National Championships in the previous 12 months must be declared with the entry form if playing other than A grade.

In the case of disputes, the matter will be referred to the Disputes Chairperson. In the case of reports, the decision of a tribunal appointed by the administration will be final.

Finals shall be played according to the system specified in each grade.

Functional Classification Examples (Guide Only)
1 point Players with little or no controlled trunk movement in all planes. Their balance in both forward and sideways directions is significantly impaired and they rely on their arms to return them to the upright position when unbalanced. One point players have no active trunk rotation.
2 point Players with some partially controlled trunk movement in the forward direction, but no controlled sideways movement. They have upper trunk rotation but poor lower trunk rotation.
3 point Players with good trunk movement in the forward direction to the floor and up again without arm support. They have good trunk rotation but no controlled sideways movement.
4 point Players with normal trunk movement, but usually due to limitations in one lower limb they have difficulty with controlled sideways movement to one side.
4.5 point Players with normal trunk movement in all directions who are able to reach side to side with no limitations. Able Bodied Players.
