The eight playoff teams were determined using a power point system. Teams are awarded 100 points for each official league victory, and 10 bonus points for every league win that opponent has.

While the power point system was used to determine qualifiers, it was not used to determine final seedings.

Once the top eight teams were established, the eight coaches of those teams voted on the seedings. Teams were ranked one through seven, with one best being and seven being worst. Coaches could not include their own team in their ranking.

Darien had the lowest point total and was seeded first, New Canaan was second lowest and was seeded and second, and so on to Ludlowe in eighth place.
