WHAT IS THE OFFICIAL CIRCUIT RANKING SYSTEM
In 2014, the Circuit National Tour will employ a “BCS” style of system, combining three (3) ranking systems to produce OFFICIAL CIRCUIT RANKING SYSTEM (CRS) (http://www.kickball365.com/thecircuit/rankings). This includes: an ELO-Based Ranking System, a FIFA®-Based Ranking System, and a RPI-Based Ranking System. The Circuit will use the total of the three above Ranking Systems to determine the OFFICIAL CIRCUIT RANKING SYSTEM (CRS) throughout the National Tour Year. The CRS will take the ranking of each team’s ELO, FIFA®, and RPI and combine them to determine their rank. Only teams classified as Established Teams will be eligible for inclusion the CRS. Teams classified as Open, Provisional or Merged Teams will be ranked once they are updated as an Established Team (see CIRCUIT EVENT TEAM CLASSIFICATIONS). Available teams are not eligible for the CRS.
