The playoff format for 2018 has changed a little from previous years. As a means of encouraging teams to participate in the ALA Provincials (any team that files an intent form can participate), the CDLA board decided to ‘play down’ the city championship format.
In past years, depending on the size of the division, we advanced the top 4, 6, 8, 10 and even 12 teams to a double elimination city final. This year the focus is to ‘minimize’ participation. As such, most divisions only have the top 4 teams advancing (but some of the larger divisions have more teams) and city playoffs will be a ‘single elimination’ format. Medals are only presented to the gold and silver finalists.
