Sports Stars

You can click on “Schools” in the main menu to see your school’s specific Sports Stars points and view the top 10 point getters in each classification below or on the Varsity home page.

 

The Sports Stars program is designed to recognize all member schools within SSNL. This program aims to identify the efforts of schools in providing programs that enhance and promote their students, school and community.

Three benchmarks that represent the goals of SSNL; performance, participation and sportsmanship will be used to award points to schools based on the 10 specific parameters. These 10 categories include: participation, hosting, placement, and sportsmanship awards at the regional and provincial level, as well, as maximum participation numbers and involvement in the Participation Nation program. Points will be tabulated within the 4 main classifications: 4A, 3A, 2A, & A Schools.

Based on the chart below, schools will be awarded at the Gold, Silver, & Bronze Star levels while those reaching the Participation level at the end of the school year will be acknowledged as well. As a school reaches each level, a certificate will be forwarded to the school. When a school reaches the Gold Star Level, the Gold Banner will be sent to the school so that a special presentation can be made at the school’s convenience. Schools that finish the school year at the Silver Star or Bronze Star Level will receive a banner for their school at the end of the year. Schools not reaching the Bronze level will be awarded a Participation Certificate, provided they have participated in at least one SSNL event.

 

NOTE: AN UPDATED 2016-17 SPORTS STARS POINTS BREAKDOWN IS BELOW. A new classification level has been added for Sports Stars purposes ONLY.
“A” schools will be split into “A1″ (Schools with populations of 20-40) and “A2″ (Schools with populations of 1-19).

Sports Stars points will be updated after all Qualification & Provincial Tournament reports are entered online through our new Tournament Pages or in specific cases, mailed in, at the latest,1-month after the Qualification or Provincial tournaments.

In cases where zone competitions exist, Regional Directors or Zone Tournament Convenors must notify the SSNL office of the event information and points will be awarded to those schools who did not advance to the Regional. Point structure can be found below and please fill out the Zone Tourney Team Participation Report Form to report your event.

Schools will also be able to accumulate points for their participation in the Participation Nation Program. The points program would work in this way:

  1. Schools that contain both Junior High and High School grades can have their Junior High approved PN events accumulate points for the SSNL Sports Stars program.
  2. A stand-alone junior high school cannot earn points for the school they feed into.
  3. Schools earn 50 points for hosting a Participation Nation Jamboree: an event that consists of 3 or more schools and where 2 or more sports are played. Attending schools earn 20 points.
  4. Schools earn 30 Sports Stars points for hosting a Participation Nation Festival of Sport: an event that includes 3 or more schools, but where a single sport/activity is played. Attending schools earn 15 points.
  5. Schools who participate in the PN Unplugged Program will receive a one-time point total of 75.
  6. There are no points awarded for In-House activities or Friendlies.

Miscellaneous Notes Regarding Points:

  1. Points for Jr. & Sr. in Cross-Country Running & Skiing are averaged to get one point total per sex.
  2. Points for co-hosting will be split between the host schools.
  3. If there is a tie for sportsmanship awards, full points will be awarded to each winner.
  4. In cases where small schools have been granted permission to combine, Maximum Participation points will be awarded based on the number of participants per school i.e. if School A has 8 participants and School B joins them with 4 participants and the team received 100 maximum participation points, then School A will get 80% of the max part. points and School B – 20%. Event participation points and Placement points will be awarded to both schools, but Host points will be given only to the actual host school. Sportsmanship points will only be given to the school connected to the winning student at a Qualifier, but to both schools at a Provincial in the case of a Team Banner.
  5. The maximum points will be awarded for teams carrying the maximum allowable players. See the maximum players explanation and breakdown chart below for more info:

Maximum Participation Breakdown

  • Maximum participation points start at 100pts for having the maximum number of players participate in each sex of each sport. For each player missing from the maximum allowed, your school is deducted a pre-assigned value.
  • A school is eligible to be awarded maximum participation points for both the Qualifier and Provincial Tournaments in each sex of each sport, but only the tournament where you had the greater number of participants will count towards your maximum participation total (See Zone and Lab Meet points breakdown in table above for their Max pts. Rules). If your school only participated in one of the Qualifier or Provincial, then the number of players in that single tournament will be applied to the formula.
  • Below is a breakdown of the deductible values assigned to each sport for players missing from the maximum allowable limit at both the Qualifier and Provincial tournaments.
