The top four lacrosse teams in both boys and girls are eligible for the District IV Tournament provided they play a minimum of nine games.  District IV will have one girls team and one boys team advance to the state tournament.

Only official PIAA varsity games will be considered for your record.  An official game is one with a PIAA contract (or league scheduled) and your opponent must be a member of the PIAA in lacrosse, all games that count must be conducted by PIAA Officials.

The district playoff games shall be conducted in accordance with the PIAA rules and regulations governing interscholastic sports competition.  The National Federation Lacrosse Rules are the official PIAA rules.  Teams that enter the playoffs agree to all the regulations established by the district lacrosse committee.

The district committee will assign officials and a game manager for each game.

Seeding

Teams will be seeded by the district lacrosse committee based upon winning percentage of your overall record. If the winning percentage is equal, the team with the most games played will be seeded higher. Head to head competition and having more wins, or coin flip will be considered to break a seeding tie.

Winning percentage will be determined by the following procedure: 2 points for a win, 1 point for a tie, and 0 points for a loss; (total wins) divided by (total games played x 2) = winning percentage.

The top four District IV Teams that played 9 games or more are eligible for District IV Playoffs.
