  • Playoff format will depend upon the number of teams eligible for playoff action after the completion of all regular season games after taking into account the two items above.

  • Each normal playoff round is best 2 out of 3 games format, with game 3 being played only if required. For all rounds, rankings are based on Adjusted Final Regular Season Standings.

  • A team may have multiple games scheduled in a week, including the possibility of double headers.
