2020 Playoff Format Details

Post Season Brackets and Tournaments

Traditionally there would be two tournaments, with two spearte brackets.  Because Covid-19 has created an abbreviated season and caused different travel restrictions in school districts across the state, there may not be any post season in 2021, let alone a state championship.

As the 2021 season rogresses, the OHSLA will be examing the feasibility of a post-season and the website will be updated as soon as decisions are made. 

Playoff Game Revenues and Costs

Revenue Sharing

As noted in the OHSLA 2021 SOPs host teams must charge admission for all Cascade-Cup and Championship bracket playoff games.  Pricing and revenues are as follows:

  • Admission charges, prices determined by the Commissioner, MUST be charged to ALL spectators, not just those of the visiting school.
  • Admission prices are $8 for adults and $5 for students.  Kids 5 and under are free.
  • The gate total shall be split 50/50 with the OHSLA and host school after approved host expenses are subtracted from the gate total.  OHSLA Treasurer, Joe Alexander, will email each club their referee costs after each playoff game.  The total amount due can be calculated from the 2020 OSHLA Playoff Payment Worksheet (right click and select "Save Target As..." or "Save Link As...", depending on your browser).  A copy of this worksheet with the payment can be sent to the OHSLA Treasurer.
  • If charging admission is a problem for any program, special arrangements must be made with the OHSLA prior to the game taking place.
  • Failure to charge admission/submit accounting worksheet/pay OHSLA share will result in (1) the team being billed for the average share received by the league received from schools in a similar playoff round PLUS (2) a $250 fine. 

If you have any questions or need a playoff calculation worksheet emailed to you, please contact the OHSLA Treasurer at Joe@alexsndertaxconsulting.com


Travel Allowances

OHSLA will help with travel costs for visiting playoff teams in the first three rounds of the playoffs (first round, second round and quarter finals). 

The travel cost reimbursements have changed this year.  There will no longer be reimbursements for in district travel, and amounts for near district travel has been reduced slightly.  For teams that have home games as well as away games, the travel allowance for their away game can be applied as a credit (just like any approved host expense) to their final team billing.  The Table below shows the Travel Allowance from OHSLA for teams between the four areas in the state.
