Please note that live streaming rights of all postseason events are held by NFHSNetwork.com. Events broadcasted by AZPreps365.com and/or the NFHS Network are exclusive to those entities for postseason competition. If AZPreps365.com or the NFHS Network are not broadcasting, a school or third party may broadcast using the following three options:

NFHS Network School Broadcast Program broadcasting: If a school plans to stream a postseason event and has an NFHS Network School Broadcast Program account, it can stream through the NFHS Network.

NFHS Network Affiliate Program: A third party wanting to become an NFHS Network affiliate will be granted exclusive rights to a postseason event at no cost. The outlet must stream the event solely to the NFHS Network. The outlet may broadcast the event in its own manner and may keep its advertising. Outlet will also be eligibile for royalties. Sample Affiliate Agreement

Any other means: Outside entities may be able to broadcast an NFHS Network "declined event" with non-exclusive rights. Permission must be granted through the AIA by completing a Media Rights Agreement and agreeing to rights fees. click here for agreement

State Meet Qualifying

Each sectional race will qualify the top 50% of FULL (5 >) teams entered on athletic.net and from the respective section. Teams must be entered by the deadline date of TBD at noon. If a section has an odd number of entered teams, the number of qualifying teams will be rounded up. Example: If 11 teams in a section are entered on athletic.net, six teams will qualify for the state meet.

Each sectional race will qualify the top 25 finishers regardless of their team’s placement. Example: If all of the top 25 finishers are members of an already qualified team then no additional finishers will qualify.
