1. As we approach the final weeks of a very fluid and competitive rankings battle; make sure all your team's games are posted accurately at MaxPreps. We will suspend any team from rankings if their reports include wrong scoring data or wrong opponent. The reason is obvious, it's not whether you won, but who you played.
We are currently holding several teams in suspension so as not to harm the rankings of teams who do things right.
For example, one team recently reported beating a top national contender when they actually played a different team from a town of the same name. This would have illegitimately boosted the homeschool teams rank higher than the current national homeschool leader.
We do our best to locate a valid email address and let the leadership know when we see a problem, but if you see your team is missing from our rankings, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will work with you and enthusiastically reinstate your team as quickly as the rankings are reflecting accurate data.
2. Teams who are contending for the national championship rankings will see an inquiry to confirm that their roster has a majority comprised of home-educated athletes.
We generally accept teams in our rankings database if they claim to be established for homeschool athletes, but since most teams also allow some athletes from very small academies, the rosters can look very different from team to team and year to year. Our team eligibility is based on roster outcomes rather than theoretical statements. for more info, see http://nhfcs.org/selections/
