Preseason and Seeding Round
Preseason allows for a transition from indoor to outdoor maximizing the amount of play-time for teams. Teams will participate in a 4-game preseason against competition registered in the same tier. During this time, clubs will use the results and feedback from their coaches to determine if the team has been placed in the correct tier. U11-U18 tiers 1-6 participate in preseason.

U9-U10 teams participate in a seeding round against teams registered in the same tier. Over the course of the seeding round, CMSA will use the results to ensure teams are placed with equally competitive teams for their regular season and city finals.

Regular Season
Regular season schedules are created once preseason and seeding round games have completed. This allows member-clubs the opportunity to move teams to a more appropriate tier based on their performance in the preseason. The regular season is comprised of a single round robin, double round robin or in some instances, a triple round robin if there is a small number of teams registered in that group. The results of regular season determine the final league placements and post-season competition placement.
