TSSAA Votes New 6-Class Football Classification Plan

All 32 Teams Receive Automatic Berths In The Playoffs

Monday, August 11, 2014 - by Special to Chattanoogan.com

The Tennessee Secondary School Athletics Association has voted in the alternate six-class plan for football classification.

At a BOC meeting in Hermitage, Tenn., the six-class plan will be used for football classification for schools in Division I for at least the 2015-16 and 2016-17 school years. The current five-class system is in play for 2014-15.

The 32 largest schools based on enrollment will be placed in Class 6A and all 32 will automatically qualify for the playoffs. 

The remaining schools will be put in five classes, divided evenly based on their enrollment figures, and qualify for the playoffs as they did in the old 5-class system. 

The top 4 teams in each region (eight regions per class) will qualify for the playoffs.
