There are five (5) conference in D3- New Jersey (NJ), New York City (NYC), New York/Connecticut (NY/CT), New York South (NYSouth) and Upstate. After league play, eight (8) teams will advance to the Empire GU playoffs. The winner of each conference will be seeded 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5. Seeding will be based on normalized competition points (match points + bonus points)/ matches played (see below). The remaining three (3) play-off teams (wild cards) will come from the best second-place teams based on normalized competition points. These teams will be seeded 6, 7 and 8. If teams have the same normalized competition points value, then the team with the greater positive difference between points for and points against will be the higher seed.


Competition points are determined as follows:
Match Points
* 4 match points for a win
* 2 match points for a tie
* 0 match points for a loss

Bonus Points
* 1 bonus point for scoring 4 tries or more in a match
* 1 bonus point for losing by 7 points or less in a match

Note: Forfeits are recorded to the team not responsible for the forfeit as a 20-0 win with a bonus point (5 competition points total).  Forfeiting Team shall receive up to negative five (-5) points.
