Region Playoff Formats
Each region sends two teams to the NWAACC Championship Tournament.
The North and East Regions conduct a 4-way regional playoff to determine the two championship tournament teams. Region champion is guaranteed to go to the tournament, but must win the regional playoff to go as the region's #1 seed.
The West conducts a playoff between the #2 and #3 regular season teams for the West's #2 seed in the tournament.
The South sends the region's top two regular season teams. A playoff is only conducted if there is a tie for second place.
