Regular Season Schedule
League games are played in a round-robin format (home/away sites alternate by year) on Saturdays in the weeks leading up to the championship. For example, if there are six teams in the league, league games would be played on the five Saturdays prior to the championship. (No games are scheduled on Easter weekend – if Easter falls within the league schedule, that weekend is skipped in the schedule and league play will begin one weekend earlier.
The league championship is played in a Friday-Sunday format, with the top four teams in the league (based on regular-season finish) participating. The two semi-final games are played on Friday, with the winners advancing to the championship on Sunday. All games are played at a single site; the host is determined by a bid process approximately 18 months prior to the event.
