Preseason rankings include all varsity programs and are determined by a poll of all varsity coaches. Subsequent rankings will be based on team match results and set by the CSA rankings committee, until the January 23, 2018 rankings release which will be based off the college squash algorithm. The computer rankings will then continue until team championships occur the weekends of February 16-18 and 23-25, in which the final finishing positions determine the end-of-season rankings.
