2018 NCSA Regional Playoff Format

The NCSA will have seven Regional Playoff Tournaments this season.  The seven Regions are the Great Lakes, Great American, Mid-America, Mid Atlantic, North Atlantic, New England, and the South Atlantic.  There are 4-teams that make up each regional tournament.  With each Region being split up into 3-conferences, each conference winner gets an automatic bid and the final team is an at-large selection.

The four teams that compete in each regional will play in a double elimination tournament with the winner being crowned the Regional Champion.  Each Regional Champion & Runner-Up will move onto the NCSA World Series in addition to the Pacific-Central and Pacific-South conference winners, these 16 teams will face off against each other to compete for a National Championship.
