2017 NCSA Regional Playoff Format

The NCSA will have eight Regional Tournaments each year that represent one of the eight geographic regions that make up the NCSA.  The eight Regions are the Great Lakes, Great American, Mid-America, Mid Atlantic, North Atlantic, New England, South Atlantic and the Pacific.  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, these 16 teams will face off against each other to compete for a National Championship.
