•    Coaches of NFCA-member schools in good standing may nominate up to 8 players from their own team to the All-Region ballot.

•    Schools must be considered Division II in good standing by the NCAA to be considered.

Only regular season statistics should be used.  Nominations will not be accepted prior to the end of a team’s regularly scheduled games.

•    Only statistics against Division II opponents should be used.  Nominations that include statistics against any non-Division II opponents will not be considered.

•    A player may only be nominated for one position.

•    The form must be filled out completely to be considered.

•    The following guidelines will apply for each position, and strength of schedule will be considered:

A catcher will be credited with an SBA every time a runner attempts to steal a base. If the runner is caught stealing as a result of a throw, it is a CS. Pick-offs (PkO) are noted when a catcher throws out a runner on a non-steal attempt (i.e. runner is picked off when trying to return to first base)

•    If you see a misspelled name for one of your players, please email your regional representative immediately.

  

Tabulation of Votes; Post-Selection Requirements

On May 8, the respective regional representative will tabulate the coaches' votes for his/her region and determine the All-Region selections. All-Region teams will be released to the schools and will appear on-line by 5 p.m. ET May 9.

Each coach who has an All-Region First Team or Second Team player must submit the following to their respective regional representative by Friday, May 11 (or when rep needs it, pending his or her regional schedule, if applicable).

•    Updated statistics, excluding conference tournament statistics if a conference tournament is held.

•    Game-by-game statistics, excluding conference tournament statistics if a conference tournament is held.

•    Phone numbers, including home and/or cell, where the coach can be reached May 11, 12 and 13.

  

Selection of All-American Teams

Regional representatives meet May 12 via conference call to select the All-American First, Second and Third Teams. The time of the meeting will be arranged by Brian Davis, NFCA Director of Media Relations, and the committee chair. The following guidelines are used in determining the teams:

Only players who were selected to All-Region Teams are eligible for consideration at the All-American level. It is the responsibility of the player's coach to get updated statistics (including game-by-game) on his or her All-American candidate(s) to the regional representative by May 11. Conference tournament statistics should be excluded, if applicable.

•    The selection process is done by position. Each of the three teams at a determined position are selected before the committee moves on to vote for another position. For example, if the committee is looking at pitchers, they a) vote in all the First Team pitchers, b) vote in all the Second Team pitchers, c) vote in all the Third Team pitchers, d) move on to the next position.

•    Both First Team and Second Team All-Region selections may be eligible for First, Second or Third team All-American consideration. For example, if one region has its First Team All-Region catcher voted in as First Team All-American, then that region representative could bring up its Second Team All-Region catcher for consideration for the remainder of the All-American voting process.

•    The committee discusses each player on the ballot who has been brought to the table by the regional representative as a potential first-team All-American. A vote is taken and the top vote getter represents the first team. The committee then discusses each player on the ballot who has been brought to the table as a potential second team All-American. A vote is taken and the top vote getter represents the Second team. The process is repeated for selection to Third team. If there is a tie, the committee re-discusses the individuals involved in the tie and re-votes until the tie is broken. Exception: If there is a tie at the Third team All-American level, all players are awarded.

•    The First- and Second-Team All-America teams are comprised of 16 players: three pitchers, two catchers, one first base, one second base, one third base, one shortstop, three outfielders, one designated player, one utility-pitcher, one utility-non-pitcher, and one at large position make up the first and second team All-America teams. The third team consists of one player at each of the following positions (P, C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, OF) and six at-large selections. At-large positions are nominated by the regional representatives.

  • Once the All-American teams are selected, each regional representative will notify the coach of the selected All-American, inviting the player(s) to attend the NCAA Division II Women’s Softball Championship.
