Hi Everyone,
It’s hard to believe the regular season ends on Thursday, February 16th–less than a month from now! Please note this important information about the playoffs:


  • All teams make the playoffs.
  • TCBL establishes its playoff brackets with the goal of maximizing parity. As such, teams may be moved to a higher or lower playoff bracket based on regular season results.
  • Seedings are based on regular-season record, head-to-head competition, and coin toss/pick out of hat if teams are still tied.
  • Brackets will range in size with multiple levels (e.g. A/B or A/B/C) wherever possible.
  • Throughout the playoffs, the higher-seeded team will be treated as the “home” team and should wear white.
  • TCBL will disseminate the playoff brackets on or about Thursday, February 23nd.
  • Playoff games can begin as early as Monday, February 27th.
  • Quarterfinal and outbracket games, if applicable to your bracket, are to be scheduled by agreement between opponents subject to the following cutoff dates: Friday, March 3rd (outbracket) and Thursday, March 9th (quarterfinal).
  • The higher seed will host and must offer the visiting team a minimum of two dates.
  • TCBL has reserved slots for semi-final and championship games during the weekends of March 3rd/4th/5th and March 10th/11th/12 at Sacred Heart High School in Yonkers and House of Sports in Ardsley.
  • If your program uses coaches who coach more than one TCBL team, please let us know the multiple teams so we can avoid any conflicts for the semis and finals.


  • As in years past, TCBL will cover referee fees incurred for all rounds of the playoffs.
  • For all outbracket and quarterfinal games, the hosting team should secure referees via their assignor as if it were a regular-season game.
  • TCBL will secure referees for all neutral-site games.
We realize this is a lot of information, so don’t hesitate to reach out if anything isn't clear.
Good luck to all 188 teams over the regular-season home stretch and we’ll see you in the gym soon!
