Palmdale Region 393

Playoff qualification point system

Region 393 Playoff qualification point system

The volunteer point system was created by our region with the goal of increasing the level of participation from our soccer community to further develop the program. 

For the 10U -14U Divisions, there is a minimum requirement for each team to qualify for the exciting end-of-season Area 10D Playoffs! 


To qualify for playoffs you must complete all required volunteer points.

▪ Playoff participation will be based on completing the required number of volunteer points.  Once admitted into the playoffs via reaching their volunteer points requirement, a team’s bracket placement is based on their win/loss record.

▪ In the event of a tie in win/loss record bracket placement we will use the total number of volunteer points to break the tie.

▪ If a team does not meet their volunteer points requirement…the team is not entered into Playoffs. NO EXCEPTIONS.

▪ Volunteer points become final for that week by the following Saturday. No adjustments will be made to current volunteer points after the 1st week adjustment period has ended. (From Saturday to the next Saturday) 

• Head coaches that have 2 or more teams will start with a 4 point referee credit per team.
