JBO Matrix and Classifications

For the purposes of determining Team requirements, use the following matrix for the appropriate Level (This rule is NOT subject to a waiver.)

 6A/5A High Schools                            4A/3A/2A/1A High Schools
#  Federal    American    National          #  Federal    American    National  
 1 1 (6A)  1 (5A)  1 1 (4A) 1 (3A)
2 1 (6A)  1 (5A) 1 (6A/5A) 2 11
 3 111 3 12
 4112 4112
5122 5113
6123 6123
7124 7124
8134 8134
9135 9135
 10235 10235


For Associations not directly affiliated with a high school, classification will be determined by the high school(s) their program will feed into. If the program feeds into multiple high schools or multiple associations feeding into one high school, the District Commissioners will determine the appropriate classifications.

Associations may apply to change their matrix classification if they cannot compete at their high school classification. Associations must fill out both the reclassification section of the JBO Application for Participation and the JBO Reclassification Form, and get approval from their District board. Once approved, the District will file the request with the JBO board no later than April 1st. The Association will develop their teams in accordance to the new matrix classification for no more than 2 years. After 2 years, the Association must reapply and be re-evaluated. The District and/or JBO Board reserves the right to move the Association back to their high school classification if the Association shows it can compete at that classification.

District Commissioners may move a team up a level at any point prior to completing fifty percent (50%) of the team’s league games. However, a District Commissioner may not waive a team down in the Matrix. If a team wants to move down, they forego any post-season play.

If a team decides not to follow the above rule, then that team and any team affected by the move is ineligible for postseason play (District and JBO). All other teams playing by the matrix are eligible for post-season. Ex. 1 A 5A school has 4 teams in a division. Matrix requires 1 Fed, 1 Amer, 2 Nat. Instead they fill 2 Amer and 2 Nat teams. Both American teams are not eligible for post-season, while the 2 National teams are not affected. Ex. 2 A 5A school has 4 teams in a division. Matrix requires 1 Fed, 1 Amer, 2 Nat. Instead, they fill 1 Amer and 3 Nat; all teams are ineligible.

If an Association is not willing to play by the matrix or complete the reclassification section of the JBO Application and the JBO Reclassification Form, and get District approval, yet still wants to play below the matrix then they forgo post season (District & JBO) Championships.
