Junior and Masters: Contact us for more information.

Men: All the teams wanting to participate at the A, B, or C National Championships will have to take part in the Premier League regular season. Premier League teams will be divided in two divisions: A and B.

1. Winning teams from the A division will go to the "A" National Championship.

2. Winning teams from the B division will go to the "B" National Championship.

3. Winning teams from the C division will go to the "C" National Championship.

4. Winning teams from the D division will go to the "D" National Championship.

  • In the A division, if the same team is to win both seasons (summer and winter), a head to head game shall be played between the summer and winter seasons’ finalists; to see which team captures the second spot.
  • The B division winner will get an automatic birth at the B Nationals, and will be forced to move up to the A division for a minimum of one season. If the B champions do not want to play in the B Nationals, they will be allowed to stay in the B division Premier League. After two consecutive championships, the team will be obliged to move up.
  • In the event where a team that already has a spot reserved for the B or C Nationals, and wins the next season in the higher category, they could participate at the A or B National Championships the next year.*
