5.2.5 DETERMINATION OF HOME AND AWAY GAMES

All Combined High Schools knockout competitions determine home and away games by the following method (unless specified under the particular knockout competition rules):

a) The first mentioned school on the draw is the home school in round 1.

b) The home school in other rounds shall be the school which has the least number of home games.

c) Where the number of home and away games are equal:

The first mentioned school in the draw shall become the home school in odd numbered rounds.
The second mentioned school shall become the home school for even numbered rounds.

d) In the event of a forfeit in a state knockout the draw as it appears on a home and away basis will remain unaltered and the forfeit will not become a home match to the non-forfeiting team.

e) In the case of the "home school" not satisfying home school duties with regard to the notification period, the "visiting team" shall automatically become the home school. The visiting school in assuming home school duties, must satisfy all home school requirements with the exception of the notification period which shall be: give three school days’ notice, confirmed by fax, with a choice of three dates, or play on a date mutually agreed upon. The offered dates, unless mutually agreed upon shall not be the "new" visiting schools sports day or a weekend. In Knockout Rounds if both schools do not take up the option to be home school, the SWSSA convener or the state convener, where applicable, will decide a time, date and venue for the match to be played prior to the next round completion date.

 6.   Duties of the home team shall include:

a) arrange venue
b) arrange date/time
c) arrange referees/umpires
d) perform any other duties as required by CHS Rules – (refer CHS Handbook, Section 5.2.6 on website) – these arrangements must be mutually acceptable

7.    In the event of disagreement, the SWSSA Convener will arbitrate.

8.    Results of all matches must be EMAILED, to the Convener, by BOTH SCHOOLS, IMMEDIATELY THE RESULT IS KNOWN. The convener will inform you of your next round match.
