NSAA Cup Details & Point System 

Each year the NSAA recognizes the most successful activities programs in the state with the NSAA Cup. Winners are determined by a point system based on participation in NSAA education-based activities and performance in state championship events within each division and class. Music, which does not have a state-level event, earns points based on participation at the district music contest. 

The boys and girls competition in each class features schools earning participation and performance points from their respective activities. In the all-school division, schools receive participation points for each of its NSAA registered programs, and earn additional points for placing in NSAA championship events. 

All schools, which finish in the top eight positions (plus any ties) in a state championship event, receive points. In activities’ championships involving cooperative agreements, each of the schools in the cooperative will earn the points for that respective event providing they have at least one student participating on the cooperative varsity team. 

In playoff events involving teams in a split classification, the same top eight positions in that event’s class (e.g. D1 and D2) will earn full points for their class competition. If there are fewer than eight schools from a classification in the event, only those schools represented, are eligible to receive points. 

Championship performance points are awarded for all activities championship events as follows: 

  • First place – 50 points 
  • Second place – 45 points 
  • Third place – 40 points 
  • Fourth place – 35 points 
  • Fifth place – 30 points 
  • Sixth place – 25 points 
  • Seventh place – 20 points 
  • Eighth place – 15 points 

Due to the COVID-19 Virus pandemic there were no spring activities. Schools were awarded five participation points for each spring activity they had registered for.
