In Cross Country, the three teams finishing first, second, and third in the League Final meet shall be the CIF playoff representatives. 

Section 7:         The Marmonte League shall require that both schools have an administrator or designee present at all varsity football and boys’ varsity basketball games, and that the visiting administrator shall be obligated to seek out the home school administrator or before the contest and identify himself/herself.  A home school administrator or designee will be present at all varsity girls’ basketball, wrestling, and boys’ and girls’ volleyball, and boys’ and girls’ soccer contests.  At football games whenever possible a visiting administrator will be a radio to contact home school staff. In all cases administrators from each school will establish procedures for communication with each other.  At all other contests the visiting school has the right to decide if a significant number of spectators will be present to necessitate the presence of an administrator.

                           The home school is responsible for all facilities and security of those facilities.  The visiting coach or responsible adult will remain with his/her team until they are out of the locker room.  The home school will have an administrator or representative to make sure the visiting teams have no problem boarding the bus or exiting the home campus.

                           The home school shall issue field passes to the visiting school administrators at all varsity football games.  All persons on each sideline who are not players or coaches will be required to have a visible field pass.  Each school must designate a person responsible to supervise.

                           The visiting school sophomore football team shall be supervised during the varsity game.  Visiting varsity teams shall dress and shower at home whenever possible.

                        The following procedures have been adopted by the League:  Girls’ teams with male coaches will not shower following away contests.  No managers or team members will be permitted access to locker rooms unless accompanied by a coach.  Visiting coaches will be requested to be on board their team
bus with all athletes, twenty minutes after the conclusion of their contest.

Section 8:         Police Requirements:  Every school shall take the responsibility of informing by letter to the visiting school, what the security arrangements are for varsity football and basketball games, prior to the beginning of the season.  Visiting teams shall be notified of all special arrangements and expectations
of the visiting school.  At football games, at least one visible supervisor shall be assigned to the visiting side, and the visiting administrator shall be made aware of the presence and whereabouts of this person. 

Section 9:         Resolving Ties:

A.           In the case of a tie between two or more teams for a championship, the teams so involved shall be considered co-champions.

B.           Unless specified under the individual sport by-laws, the following will occur:  In the case of a tie for the League championship, or any other position, the team that won both games between one another shall be the designee for the highest playoff seed.

Any team under CIF or League sanction, and /or any team not meeting the CIF minimum requirement that would otherwise be considered in this tie resolving system shall not be nominated by the League for a playoff spot.

C.          In the case of multiple ties for the League championship or any other position, the team having the best league record against those teams involved in the tie shall be the highest seed into the playoffs.

The above steps should be used and reused to resolve ties.  In cases where “head to head” competition does not break a tie, then proceed to step D.

D.          In the case of ties not resolved in step C, the “points for win” system is the next alternative.  The team finishing first in the League shall be accorded a point value equal to the total number of teams competing in that sport.  The team finishing last shall be accorded a point value of “1” and all other teams shall be given point according to their standing.  When two or more
teams tie for a position, the points for those positions shall be totaled and divided by the number of teams tied.  Each of the tied teams shall be accorded a number.  Teams will acquire a point total by adding to their point values accorded the teams they have defeated and one-half the
point value of teams they have tied.  (If two or more teams have the same points and are still tied, then proceed to step E.)

E.         A coin flip would be the last alternative to determine CIF playoff seeds. 

Section 10:           In all Marmonte League Contests, only Marmonte League schools are eligible to participate. 

ARTICLE III      ASSIGNMENT SECRETARY 

Section 1:         Appointment and Remuneration:  The assignment Secretary/Liaison shall be appointed annually by the CIF-SS.  The League may give input to the CIF-SS as to who they would encourage to hold this position, however the League in not given the opportunity to hire/fire this person.

ARTICLE VII    SPORTSMANSHIP RATING

manner it sees fit.  However, only one final ballot will be accepted from each school.
 

The top school in each season will be announced at the League meeting and awarded the League’s Sportsmanship banner for that season of sport.  At the end of the spring season, the three ratings will be combined and the school with the highest score will be designated to receive the Adohr Farm/Los Angeles Dodgers Sportsmanship Trophy. 

In addition to the seventeen items following, schools should be judged on the number of students in attendance at contests.  Also, criteria for sportsmanship should be applied to all League athletic contests at the varsity and lower levels, in both boys and girl’s contests.
