The KRACH rating system will be used by the entire EJEPL to rate teams for playoffs. The KRATCH system is widely used to rank teams where there is an unbalanced schedule. The way the KRACH works is simple, although the formulas aren’t. A team’s rating is based on the strength of schedule related to the results of the entire League in all the games played. If a team at the top loses to a team at the bottom, their rating nose-dives and if a bottom team beats a top team, their rating sky-rockets. A team could finish the season with more points than other teams, but because they didn’t beat top opponents, their KRACH may not be in the top point rated teams to qualify for the playoffs.
If you Google KRACH, a bigger explanation is there to read through. The KRACH ratings come out weekly starting in December.
All Coaches and Team Managers Please check your game schedule and make sure you have all your required games completed before the Playoff Dates for your Division. Make sure your teams results are accurate with wins, loses, ties and over time wins and loses. (Check the playoff tab on the website homepage for your Divisions Playoff Dates)
Any TBD still on your schedule has to be played.
****ANY TEAM NOT HAVING THE REQUIRED AMOUNT OF GAMES FOR THEIR DIVISION WILL NOT BE ELIGIBLE FOR PLAYOFFS.****
