|8.1 PLAYOFFS OPTIONAL (9-BALL RULE)|
Playoffs are completely optional. The local NAPA league operator has the right to hold playoffs if he or she so chooses, but they are not required. If the local NAPA League Operator does choose to hold playoffs, the team who wins the playoffs will be declared the championship team and receive the qualification rights for the NAPA Nationals. If the local NAPA League Operator chooses not to hold playoffs, the team finishing with the most points after the final week of the session will receive the qualification rights for the NAPA Nationals.
