UHSLL League Structure

(direct excerpts from UHSLL policy)

5.1.1 The structure of the UHSLL is critical to the development and advancement of lacrosse in Utah. There shall not be separate divisions within the UHSLL. However, teams will be divided into Regions. Teams will play a minimum of six games against other teams within that Region each year. Opponents for these games will be determined by that team’s ranking in Lax Power relative to the ranking of the other teams in their Region. Teams must play at least 12 regular games within the UHSLL and may not play more than 20 total regular season games between the start of the season and playoffs. At the conclusion of the season, teams will be seated for playoff participation in one of three playoff divisions according to their “Region-In Ranking” from Lax Power: Division A, Division B, or Division C. Seating shall be established by each team’s Lax Power ranking. The top 16 teams will be seated in playoff Division A, the next 16 teams will be seated in playoff Division B, and the remaining teams will be seated in playoff Division C.
