Divisions with five to seven teams will advance the top three teams and divisions with eight or more teams will have the top four teams advance. Leagues with only one division of seven or more teams will advance the top four teams.

In the event of a tie, several options are considered. First, if one of the teams involved has forfeited a regular season game, the other team(s) will get the higher seed. If neither team(s) has a forfeit, head to head competition will determine the higher seed. If the teams played to a tie, or more than two teams are involved, the plus/minus system based on all game scores during the regular season will determine the higher seed. If teams are still equal after the above procedures, both or all teams involved will advance to the playoffs.

All playoffs are single elimination tournaments. The playoff brackets are pre-determined. The brackets will vary depending on the number of teams eligible for the playoffs. Consolation games are scheduled for the Men's and Women's A leagues to determine third and fourth place.
