The USAFL is pleased to announce the 2011 Nationals Divisions have been set.  The National Tournament Committee has finalized the pools for Divisions I, II, III and Women’s. Division IV still requires some final revisions and Region Vice Presidents will be following up with clubs (listed below) to confirm player numbers and pairings in the coming days.

We are pleased to note that a record number of teams are playing at Nationals this year.  Unfortunately, this makes our task even more difficult, and will inevitably lead to some disappointment.

As always, this has been a difficult task, especially given the complexity inherent in a national competition (e.g., trying to compare teams that never played each other during the season, or did not play many games during the season).  The goal is to promote a lively and balanced competition based on the information available.  The nature of this task is inherently imperfect, and although we know this subject could be an endless debate, we assure you that we have done our best.

The Nationals seeding committee also takes into account teams that play regularly during the year and also prior Nationals matchups.

We would like to thank all of the clubs that provided the requested information, including game results and requested division.

The match schedule will be released the week of the tournament.
