All-America and All-Region Teams

Below are the criteria for All-America and All-Region Team selections at the Senior College and Junior College levels.  

Senior College Men and Women Selection Criteria

Senior College Men and Women
The Senior College All-region and All-America selection process begins with coaches who are members of the NSCAA's College Services program being eligible to nominate up to four of his/her field players and a goalkeeper for postseason recognition. Coaches rank their players in order. After the nomination period closes, coaches begin an all-opponent voting period where they see only those players nominated from teams they played during the regular season and select up to 22 players (1st and 2nd team). An All-America formula is then applied to the voting which includes factors such as the player ranking, success of the team and total votes received from eligible voters. This system is used for NCAA Division I, II and III programs.

NAIA, NCCAA and Junior College Men and Women Process
NAIA and Junior Colleges use the same online nomination platform for coaches to nominate their players for NSCAA postseason honors, but they do not vote online. NCCAA does not use the online nomination platform and have their own ballots circulated by their committees. After nominations close for NAIA, NCCAA and Junior College coaches, selection is administered by committees set up by each organization which reviews nominees and evaluates the players based on their own criteria.
