2019 NCAA Regional Championships Assignments

The 2019 NCAA Regional Championships assignments have been announced and the top 36 teams are moving on to post-season.

The post-season format has changed this year and there are four regional sites with eight schools at each. The top 16 schools by NQS ranking were seeded (with a minor change to allow all hosts to compete at home). Teams 17 through 36 were then placed geographically at one of the four regional sites. The top 12 individual all-around competitors and top 16 event specialists were selected based on NQS and placed geographically keeping individuals from the same team together.

Each regional site will have three days of competition, April 4-6. On the first day, the "play-in" round, the bottom two teams will compete to determine who moves on to the second day of competition. 

On the second day, there will be two sessions of four teams. The teams seeded #2, #3, #5, and #6 in that specific regional, will compete in session one. The teams seeded in #1, #4, #7, and whoever wins the play-in, will compete in session two. The two top teams from each session move on to the next day of competition.

The final day will hold one session with the four teams, and the top two will then advance to nationals. Nationals will be held in Fort Worth, Texas April 19-20.
