Section 1 – How Many Games Do I Get?

Our commitment to teams is to schedule them for 10 season games, with the top 4 teams playing for the league and/or division championship.

Section 2 – Who Makes It To The League Playoffs?

The “top 4” teams which get a shot at the championship are determined based on standings as of 9 games played. Assuming four teams “move forward”, these teams will play their 10th games as follows: Seed 1 vs Seed 4, and Seed 2 vs Seed 3. The winners of these two games will play an 11th game to determine a champion. (Note: Teams pay ref fees for the first 10 games played.)

All other teams are scheduled for a 10th game the same week of play, but are ineligible to participate for the championship title. Depending on extenuating circumstances, Top Gun may advance more than 4 teams to the playoffs.

Section 3 – How Are Ties Determined?

Ties for seeding are determined as follows:

Two-Way Tie

  1. Head-to-head (best win/loss percentage for games played between tied teams).
  2. Greatest point differential in head-to-head matches of tied teams.
  3. Greatest overall point differential for first 9 games.

Three-Way Tie

  1. Head-to-head (best win/loss percentage for games played between tied teams).
  2. Greatest point differential in head-to-head matches of tied teams.
  3. Greatest overall point differential for first 9 games.

Section 4 – I Didn’t Make The Playoffs. Where Is My 10th Game?

For the final game of the season (for teams NOT in the playoffs), the league tries to schedule each team against a competitor which they have not yet played.

  1. If a team has NOT played one or more of the teams remaining in their division pool, as many game matches as possible are created.
  2. Next, lower level teams from one division are matched with mid-level teams from the next lower division. While these games are outside true “division” play, they will usually generate good play.
  3. The last avenue for creating game matches is to re-match teams which have already played during the season.

Just A Reminder….

  1. The team captain is responsible for notifying Top Gun of any scheduling requests (byes, specific game times, etc.) by the 1st week of the season. Top Gun cannot guarantee that all requests will be honored.
    1. With the exception of holidays, byes are scheduled by request only.
    2. We cannot provide any team with a standing game time on a weekly basis.
    3. Each team is scheduled for a minimum of two double headers during the season.
  2. The official 9-game schedule for each league will be produced following the 2nd week of play at each location. 10th games are scheduled the final week of play, as described above (Sections 2-4).
    1. The current week’s schedule is updated to our website by Wednesday of each week, with a click-through to the season schedule once available.
    2. Team captains are responsible for verifying their schedules on-line each week.
    3. Be sure to check for double headers!
  3. Top Gun reserves the right to change scheduling, and will notify team captains of such. Team captains are responsible for notifying their teammates of any scheduling changes.
  4. While it is Top Gun’s policy to play “rain or shine”, we will cancel games if we believe fields may be damaged, or if a City mandates field closure. Cancelled games will be re-scheduled later in the season.
