Greetings from the MHSAA

Welcome to the 2018 McDonald’s JV Provincial High School Volleyball Championships!

Nearly 6,000 student athletes participate in high school volleyball in Manitoba every year, making it one of our largest sports. A great deal of hard work has gone into practices, matches and tournaments in preparation for this Championship. All teams have now focused their attention on this weekend with the goal of becoming 2018 Provincial Champions.  We wish you success as you strive to achieve your ultimate goal and hope that the Provincials will be a special memory for you all.

Thank you to the organizing committee for your efforts in hosting this event.  The support of all the student and staff volunteers is very much appreciated and is a very valued component to the overall success of this Championship.

A very special Thank You to our Title Sponsor, McDonald’s. Their strong and continued commitment to high school sport in our Province is invaluable. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank our major corporate partners for their tremendous support – Boston Pizza, Dairy Farmers of Manitoba, Manitoba’s Credit Unions, Manitoba Hydro, Mikasa, Payworks, Awards & More and Sport Manitoba.

Congratulations to all who will be competing for the coveted title of MHSAA Provincial Champions.

Chad Falk
Executive Director
Manitoba High Schools Athletic Association

Greetings from WWAC

As the president of the West Winnipeg Athletic Conference I would like to extend a heartfelt welcome all the teams who have qualified for the 2018 McDonald's AAAA Provincial Junior Varsity Volleyball Championships. Your hard work, dedication and commitment to excellence over the past few months, have led you to these Championships.

Each member of your team has played an integral role in your accomplishments this season. Although success tends to be measured in wins and losses, your involvement in volleyball this season has also formed friendships and etched memories that will last a lifetime. Special recognition should go out to the coaches, and managers for all the countless hours spent developing the teams that will participate this season.

I would like to extend a sincere thank you to the parents, for their support of the athletes, and to the school programs and administration that have contributed to the development of the athletes who will both entertain and compete over the next few weeks.

The West Winnipeg Athletic Conference takes great pride in being associated with these Championships. The physical education staff from all the WWAC member schools have done their best to ensure the continued success of this Championship tournament and it is with great pleasure that I recognize and acknowledge their efforts.

A tournament cannot run without volunteers therefore, on behalf of the WWAC, thank you to all the volunteers who have so freely given up your time to ensure the success of these Championships. Your efforts are greatly valued and appreciated.

Once again, congratulations to all the teams who have made it to these Championships and the best of luck to you all as you strive for the ultimate goal of being the 2018 McDonald's AAAA Provincial Junior Varsity Volleyball Champions.

Sincerely,

JJ Ross
President
West Winnipeg Athletic Conference (Zone 3)

  1. Participating athletes must be under the age of 17 as of midnight of the current school year, August 31.
  2. Students are eligible to participate in junior varsity for two years. In determining the two-year clause, member schools must count grade 9 as the first year.

Students must compete in a minimum of 6 games at the JV level in order to be eligible to compete in zone and provincial play-offs.

Tie Breaking Procedure:

If two or more teams are tied at the end of the preliminary round, the following criteria will be applied, in order:

  1. The team having the best ratio of won/lost matches, considering matches between the tied teams, will be ranked higher;
  2. The team having the best ratio of won/lost games, considering matches played between the tied teams, will be ranked higher;
  3. The team having the best ratio of won/lost games, considering all matches of the round, will be ranked higher;
  4. The team having the best ratio of points for/against, considering games played between the tied teams, will be ranked higher;
  5. The team having the best ratio of points for/against, considering all games played during the round, will be ranked higher;
  6. Toss of coin

When you apply this rule to break a tie you should follow this sequence:

i. When two teams are tied, the tie-breaking criteria are applied one after the other until the tie has been broken.

ii. When three or more teams are tied, the tie-breaking criteria are applied one after the other until all the tied teams have been ranked.

NOTE: This means that if there is a tie among teams X, V and Z and criteria “b’ is able to determine X as first, Y as second and Z as third, then no further criteria are to be used. The tie is broken. However, if criteria “b’ determines X as first and there is still a tie between Y and Z. then the ranking of the remaining teams will be determined by proceeding to criteria “c and so on, if necessary. Do not start at (a) again. Continue through the sequence of criteria using the results of teams x, y, and z for criteria (d).

Interzones are to be determined by the MHSAA. If the zone/interzone championship is won by the host school, then another wildcard spot becomes open. Interzone and wildcard games will be the best 3 out of 5. There will be no interzones in the varsity “A” & “AA” category.

4. SUPERVISION

At all MHSAA Provincial Championships, interzone and wildcard games, participants must have a teacher from the school division in attendance as a supervisor, or they will not be allowed to compete. In individual sports where it may be unrealistic for one teacher to accompany one student, the zone may designate teacher supervisors for athletes. This must be a written request, signed by each principal involved, and approved by the MHSAA, well in advance. The designated teacher supervisor should have a copy of the letter, with them during the championship.

Teachers employed in the school division where they are coaching a team, may be the supervisor for that team. The responsibility rests with the school to ensure that supervisor(s) are fully acquainted with all MHSAA rules, regulations and consequences. Violation of this rule may result in a fine up to a maximum of $200.00.

5. INCLEMENT WEATHER PROCEDURE

The MHSAA, in cases of severe weather disruptions, may have to make decisions as to the possible rescheduling of Provincial Championships. MHSAA decisions will be based on Environment Canada weather reports, the Manitoba Highway reports and weather conditions at the host site.

Information on possible schedule changes will be posted on the host website between 6:30 and 7:00 am on the day of the Championship. Schools will also be emailed any changes. In case of inclement weather, schools should refrain from travelling to Provincial Championships until they receive notification from the MHSAA Assistant Executive Director with instructions and updated scheduling. Schools deciding to travel prior to receiving notification from MHSAA Assistant Executive Director do so at their own risk and will be responsible for their travel and hotel costs, should the event be postponed or changed.

Many schools travel to Provincial Championships on the day prior to the championship beginning. In cases where most schools are already at the host site, the convenor along with MHSAA assistant director will try to modify schedules to
accommodate teams that will be arriving later due to
weather conditions.
