SCHEDULING TIME LINE (2014 & 2015 SEASONS) CLASSES A - B - C1- C2 - D1- D2
In January of 2014, the Nebraska School Activities Association (NSAA) staff will again establish the football schedules for all of its member schools. The classification period and schedules will be for two years – the 2014 and 2015 football seasons for Classes A-B-C1-C2-D1-D2. Football is the only NSAA activity that has a two-year classification period. The scheduling timeline followed by the NSAA staff is dependent on receiving the enrollment figures the NSAA member schools have turned into the Nebraska Department of Education on the School District Membership Report as of the last Friday in September 2013. These figures historically have been available to the NSAA sometime between December 1 and December 15.
The TENTATIVE schedule will be as follows:
November 1, 2013 – Dead line to submit application for a cooperative sponsorship in football for the 2014 and 2015 season. No cooperative sponsorships in football for the 2014 and 2015 football seasons will be accepted or permitted after November 1, 2013.
November 14, 2013 – Football coops will be approved for the 2014 and 2015 football seasons at the November 14, 2013 NSAA Board of Directors meeting.
November 30 – The deadline for schools to submit their declaration of participation in 11-man, 8- man or 6-man football. Those schools with a three-grade enrollment (9th- 11th grades) in excess of 83 are not eligible for the 8-man football playoffs, unless they’re within the one-classification waiver period or they meet the three-grade NDE enrollment count of 83 or fewer in any one of the two consecutive years. (If you have questions please contact the NSAA office.)
December – The NSAA staff will establish the classifications and district assignments for the 2014 and 2015 football seasons. Once these are completed and the schools are notified via the Internet, the schools will be asked to submit a priority list of non-district schools they would like to have on their 2014 and 2015 football schedules – Classes A-B- C1-C2-D1-D2. The NSAA office will mail out or e-mail to all member schools more detailed information on this process in December.
January/ February 2014 – The NSAA staff will establish the football schedules for the 2014 and 2015 football seasons for all member schools in Classes A-B-C1-C2-D1-D2.
February 12, 2014 – The completed two-year schedules along with the two-year home and away designations for Classes A-B-C1-C2-D1-D2 will be released to the member schools at 9:00 AM central standard time and will be posted on the NSAA Internet web site (www.nsaahome.org) at 12:00 P.M. central standard time.
