Nevada Rubric unofficial point totals through 2014-15 school year

The Nevada Interscholastic Activities Association uses the Nevada Rubric to determine alignment for Division I and Division I-A schools in Southern Nevada.

The rubric takes into account schools’ finishes in 22 sports in each of two seasons and assigns point values to those finishes. The point totals are used in a two-year cycle to determine the next two years’ alignment.

The next realignment will occur at the conclusion of the 2015-16 school year and will be effective for the 2016-17 season.

Based on the recommendations of a realignment focus committee that met Wednesday, there still will be 21 Division I teams and 16 Division I-A teams after the next realignment, and that realignment will be in place for four years. The recommendation still must be approved by the NIAA’s Board of Control in June, but could also be rejected or amended.

Teams that surpass 149 points in Division I-A are subject to move to Division I, with the exception of Boulder City, Moapa Valley and Virgin Valley which are protected due to significantly lower enrollment numbers. Teams that do not score at least 16 points in Division I are subject to move to Division I-A, though if the committee’s proposal is approved by the board, a like number of teams must move from one division to the other.

Below are the unofficial point totals through the 2014-15 school year, the first of the two years in the cycle. Teams can get as many as 40 points in each of eight major sports (football, girls volleyball, boys and girls soccer, boys and girls basketball, baseball and softball) and up to 10 points in each of the other 14 sports.

Official point totals will be released by the NIAA.
