Edmonton Metro - 1 berth
North Central - 1 berth
North East - 1 berth & 1 Wild Card (2 berths)
South - 1 berth

Wild Cards to Central & North East based on number of registered teams per zone as well as taking into consideration historical success of the zones.

Men’s (8 teams)
Calgary - 1 berth
Central - 1 berth + host (2 berths)
Edmonton Metro - 1 berth
North Central - 1 berth
North East - 1 berth + Wild Card*
South - 1 berth

*Wild Card - Central #3 has the right to challenge NE #2 for this berth. NE would host any challenge game. Both zones are having their play downs on the weekend of April 12-13 so they would have the whole following week to schedule a game before the Easter long weekend.

The Rationale for this is that both zones have the highest number of teams participating, Central Zone already has 2 berths (including the host). Historical success of the zones over the past 3 years accounting for 1-4th place finishes give NE the advantage 10-9 which is why they will be giving the hosting opportunity.

Central #3 must communicate their intention to challenge/travel to NE #2 by Monday April 15 @ noon. The game will be scheduled based on gym availability (NE #2 responsibility) as well as travel considerations (Central #3 responsibility). ASAA will be involved in the scheduling of this game if necessary.
