8-Ball & 9-Ball Leagues:
In a division of 5 or fewer teams
, the 1 st place and one Wild Card team advance to playoffs. There will be one week of playoffs and the winner will advance to the session’s Tri-Cup.
In a division of 6-9 teams
, the first place team will automatically advance to the session’s Tri-Cup. The 2nd through 4th place teams and one Wild Card team will advance to playoffs. There will be one week of playoffs and two teams will advance to the session’s Tri-Cup.
In a division of 10-16 teams
, the first place team will automatically advance to the session’s Tri-Cup. The 2nd through 6th place teams and one Wild Card team will advance to playoffs. There will be one week of playoffs and three teams will advance to the session’s Tri-Cup.
Setup for session playoffs may vary session to session, and is at APA discretion. Teams may sometimes gain automatic eligibility to Tri-Cups and/or City Tournaments based on session qualification guidelines.
When a team earns a spot to the session playoffs, they are required to participate in the playoffs. If the team chooses not to participate, the team is still responsible for paying the applicable team fees for session playoffs. The only situation in which a team may forfeit their playoff spot is in the event that the session playoffs for the division can be filled (another team willing and eligible to participate).
In a travel division, the highest ranking team will be the home team for each designated playoff match and playoffs will take place at the home team’s location. Home team will have table choice.
Players in the Playoffs must have 4 or more match scores with the team within the session.
