Nevada Rubric unofficial point totals through Fall 2014 sports season

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. barring any other realignment plans.

Division I schools with fewer than 30 points in the rubric are subject to moving to Division I-A. If more than two schools in a region have fewer than 30 points, the two schools with the fewest points would move and the remaining schools would stay in Division I.

In Division I-A, schools with more than 149 points are subject to move to Division I. Five schools (Boulder City, Moapa Valley, Virgin Valley, Faith Lutheran and Pahrump Valley) currently have the option to remain in Division I-A because of lower enrollment numbers.

The NIAA also has formed a committee for its next statewide realignment cycle, which would be for the 2016-17 season. Any changes made to the rubric or for realignment also must be approved by the NIAA’s Board of Control.

Below are the unofficial point totals for the rubric through the fall 2014 season. Teams can get up to 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 the other 14 sports. Official point totals will be released by the NIAA.
