Rationale Behind the Draw
Within each grade, teams have been allocated to divisions based on:
• school location (to minimise travel);
• separation of teams from the same school into different divisions (unless travel would be excessive);
• balancing into parallel divisions of approximately equal strength (assuming that most schools with multiple teams rank them with A as their strongest team, etc.);
• other factors to help satisfy schools' requests and preferences, where possible.
