IWFFA Ranking of Teams.
Flag Football is a sport, and tournaments create a more competitive environment for teams to strive to be number one, or the athlete whose nature is to achieve the highest status to measure personal performance. We use a ranking system to compare whether it be team, or individual for social fun or competitiveness .
We rank teams to mark history for the history of female flag football players and teams.
Another purpose to rank teams on every level, is to help organize the sport as the IWFFA works to professionalize women's flag football.
IWFFA tournaments uses one standard set of rules which allows the ability to rank teams viable and fair.
However, we admit, that by appointing any certain system, it may become vunerable to unfairness and turn out not to be the best system to use. We have made changes through the years and are always open to comments and suggestions.
Our goal is allow teams to see how they perform against all the other teams around the world and in their own countries.
In 2002, we adopted a system which was suggested by Stephanie Vigneault of Montreal Canada, who thought it more fair to allow teams the ability to accrue points during tournament competition. So far, we feel that this system offers the best method to rank teams and we continue to use today.
Sanctioned IWFFA Leagues may include their final league results to be included in our team ranking system
