The Colorado High School Activities Association (CHSAA) has released its Preseason Coaches Polls for the 2023-24 winter season. These polls cover boys basketball, girls basketball, and ice hockey. Unlike previous years, these will be the only coaches polls released, as the association plans to focus on publicizing its Seedings Index for rankings in these sports, as well as individual rankings for swimming & diving and wrestling by MaxPreps and On The Mat, respectively.
The CHSAA Seeding Index is the primary method used to determine qualification and postseason seedings for all team sports. Unlike coaches polls, the rankings on the Seedings Index are updated hourly, giving teams, coaches, and fans a better understanding of current rankings throughout the season and leading up to the postseason.
Teams must meet a minimum number of games played to qualify for the CHSAA Postseason Seeding Index, which is determined by MaxPreps and varies by sport and time of the season. The rankings will be published approximately 3-5 weeks into a particular season.
All live data for the Seedings Index can be found on the CHSAA Selection & Seeding Index website. The official CHSAA RPI calculations and the RPI standings can also be found on the association’s website.
