The Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association is preparing to debut its new online system for coaches' rankings, district standings and other information for several sports in the 2013-14 school year.
The OSSAA.com main webpage currently offers a tutorial for coaches or athletic directors who want to learn how to use the new program.
The site will manage coaches' rankings for football, basketball, baseball, soccer, volleyball and both fastpitch and slowpitch softball. The system will be the official ranking site for sports like basketball that use coaches' votes for playoff seeding.
The site will replace OKRankings.com, which has been used for rankings since 2007.
