Greetings from the MHSAA

Welcome to the 2019 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 2019 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.

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. Tournaments would count as two (2) games.

    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:

    a. The team having the best ratio of won/lost matches, considering matches between the tied teams, will be ranked higher;

    b. The team having the best ratio of won/lost games, considering matches played between the tied teams, will be ranked higher;

    c. The team having the best ratio of won/lost games, considering all matches of the round, will be ranked higher;

    d. The team having the best ratio of points for/against, considering games played between the tied teams, will be ranked higher;

    e. The team having the best ratio of points for/against, considering all games played during the round, will be ranked higher;

    f. 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.

    Teams are to bring their own warm up balls

    Net Heights: JV Boys – 2.35m JV Girls – 2.20m

    Uniform Rule: Style and colour of uniform must be consistent throughout the team. Compression undergarments can be worn, with no restrictions on colour or length.

    Athletes, team members and coaches are not permitted to wear headwear during competition, opening ceremonies, awards ceremonies, banquets and/or luncheons. Inappropriate bench conduct (i.e.; changing tops, jerseys, uniforms, at the bench or on the playing field) is not acceptable. Any athlete, team member or coach deemed in violation may be subject to a fine in the amount of $50-$200 assessed to the school.

    All uniforms must be numbered 1-99, (whole numbers). (While MHSAA allows 1-99, it is preferred that the appropriate numbers of 1-15 be used). Captains bars are not required on uniforms.

    Coaches should be advised that if the uniform rule is not adhered to, the team may not be allowed to compete and may be fined up to $200.00. The school may also be put on probation (probation being that if the school violates the infraction again, the school may be fined $200.00 and be suspended from all MHSAA activities).

    Advertising on uniforms must adhere to guidelines as outlined on pages 132-133

    Game Limit - The maximum number of matches are 25 per season. Each tournament counts as 2 matches and the 25 match limit does not include league playoffs, zone playoffs, or provincial playoffs. It does include exhibition matches. Exceeding the game limit will result in a $200.00 fine to the school and possible exclusion from Provincial Championships.

    ALL VARSITY “AAA” SCHOOLS INSIDE THE CITY OF WINNIPEG must play a minimum of 4 matches/games against AAA school in areas outside of Winnipeg, two matches/games must be played outside city limits. Tournaments count as two matches. As long as the tournament is hosted by a "AAA" school, 2 matches will be awarded, regardless of the classification of participating teams. Failure to fulfill the requirement may result in the team being ineligible for Provincial Championships.

    It is expected that all teams attend opening ceremonies and related functions (Banquets, etc.). Non-attendance may result in fines and/or further sanctions against the school.

    3. AWARDS

    Awards Presentation: All teams that medal are expected to stay for the presentation of the awards. Teams may be fined for not being present for the awards.

    In each division, the championship team will receive the Championship banner, first place medals and Championship T-shirts The runner-up team in the championship event will receive a finalist banner and second place medals. The third place team in the championship event will receive third place medals (excluding "AAAA")

    Six All-stars and one MVP will be awarded. A Players Choice Award will be selected for Varsity only.

    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.
