    Pickering 105 Eastdale 29

    Based on the score on the above post, I think LOSSA should abandoned the school classification system and introduce tiers for basketball, in over to avoid massive blowouts, and to get real competition for the basketball powerhouses over there!!

    Here's my proposed Tier system:

    Tier 1:
    - Pickering
    - Dunbarton
    - Notre Dame
    -GL Roberts
    -Richardson
    -Anderson
    -Pine Ridge

    Tier 2:
    - Sinclair
    - St.Mary
    - Wilson
    -Uxbridge
    -Denis O'connor
    -Austin
    -Maxwell Heights
    - All Saints
    - Holy Trinity
    -Ajax

    Tier 3

    A Division
    - Eastdale
    -Courtice
    - Henry Street
    - Clarington Central
    - Bowmanville
    -Clarke
    - McLauglin

    B Division
    - Oshawa Central
    - Peremya
    - O'Neill
    - Garnier
    -St. Stephan
    -Dwyer

    Great Idea! It has been proposed many times, however, certain coaches vote against it year after year. It makes sense to me and many others. I would love to see this system implemented!

    3 tiers? I think that is excessive. Two tiers is good--> 15 in each one

    Ottawa has experimented with three tiers in volleyball the past two years and it seems to have worked well. They have started with basketball this year.

    Their system consists of:

    1. OFSAA tier which is then subdivided into a AAAA/AAA division and a AA/A division.
    2. Tier 1
    3. Tier 2

    Obviously some regions won't have the numbers to do it the same way but it certainly is worth discussing in regions where there are not enough competitive matches between the top teams.

    1. Coach Clement, you heard about Clarke High, from Newcastle Village!!

    2. Mu2, I don't think 15 teams from each division for tier 2 won't work because there will be huge blowouts still. Developing teams like Eastdale, Courtice, Peremya, Bowmanville, etc will lose by a huge margin of points by the hands of Denis O'connor, Holy Trinity, and Ajax.

    Note: I used to play ball for the Eastdale Eagles, and trust me I had experience losing by big blowouts from every single team in 4A and 3A, especially GL Roberts, except Port Perry in which we won of course. So Placing Eastdale in Tier 3 will face great competition against teams mostly in Oshawa and Clarington as well.

    A tiering system was discussed at last years end of season coaches meeting, but there didn't seem to be enough interest at the time. I wasn't at the meeting myself, so i don't know the exact discussion, but it is a topic to be discussed again this spring.
