BRIDGEPORT, Pa. -- To provide a service to fans/administrators/coaches/athletes, the Collegiate Water Polo Association (CWPA) is posting an overview of the new-look National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Women's Water Polo Championship slated for Saturday-Sunday, May 6-14, at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis in Indianapolis, Indiana.
Note: Information is accurate as of Wednesday, February 1.  The NCAA has the right to change any/all information dependent upon the decisions of the championship and sport committees.
The Championship Field:
The 2017 National Collegiate Women’s Water Polo Championship will be an eight-team, single-elimination tournament. Automatic qualifiers will be awarded to seven conferences (Big West Conference, Collegiate Water Polo Association, Golden Coast Conference, Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference, Mountain Pacific Sports Federation, Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference, Western Water Polo Association)and three teams will be selected at large without geographical restrictions. Teams shall be selected by the Women’s Water Polo Committee on May 1. The teams selected to participate will be posted online at NCAA.com.
The top six teams will qualify directly to the championship; the remaining four teams will compete for the last two championship berths via two play-in games on either Saturday, May 6, or Sunday, May 9, with the winners earning the remaining berths in the eight-team championship bracket. The play-in matchups will be determined by the NCAA Women’s Water Polo Committee during the selection process.
The following parameters will be applied for the play-in games:
  • Based on rankings, geographic proximity and missed class time, the committee will determine the pairings of the teams that will participate in the play-in games, and which teams will serve as the hosts.
  • The play-in games may be contested Saturday, May 6, or Tuesday, May. 9. The location(s) will be determined by the committee.
  • Officials for the play-in games will be recommended by the national coordinator of officials and approved by the Women’s Water Polo Committee. Teams will be notified of the game officials by 8 p.m. Eastern time the day before competition.
Schedule of Events:
  • Saturday, May 6 or Tuesday, May 9 - Play-in games (may be played Tuesday, May 9, at the championship site or a site determined by the NCAA).
  • Friday, May 12 - Day 1 of NCAA Championship (Games at Noon, 1:45, 3:30 & 5:15 p.m. local time)
  • Saturday, May 13 - Day 2 of NCAA Championship (Semifinals at 3:00 & 5:00 p.m. local time)
  • Sunday, May 14 - NCAA Championship Game (3:00 p.m. local time)
So What is New?
The NCAA is no longer playing out the championship fields (i.e. - Third Place, Fifth Place, Seventh Place) as a loss means a team is done at the championship.  Similar to the men's championship this Fall, a squad that loses in the Semifinals ties for Third Place in the NCAA standings, but teams that lose on the first day of competition at the championship and the fallen from the play-in games officially finish tied for Fifth Place.
