1. Every year, schools will be placed into 10 original divisions. These 10 divisions (1, 2AA, 2A, 3AA, 3A, 4AA, 4A, 5AAA, 5AA, 5A) will have a varying number of teams in each division based on the average number of automatic qualifiers in each division over the past 2 seasons.

2. Competitive equity will be determined by a formula of individual school regular season and CIF-SS playoff performance over the previous 2 seasons. *****

3. CIF-SS Playoff brackets will be filled to 32 teams unless the number of automatic and at-large teams in a particular division necessitates a smaller bracket.

4. If there are more than 32 automatic qualifiers in a particular division, Wild Card games will be used to reduce the field to 32 teams.

5. At-large teams must have a .500 or better overall record and will be selected only to fill to 32 team brackets in each division using selection criteria discussed in the basketball preview and bulletin and as selected by the CIF-SS Coaches Advisory Committee.
