This is the order to determine home team for championship and play in games:  

1- Most points in Round Robin play – Games must be equal (ie both groups played 12 games, tie breakers don’t count)

2- If Round Robin games are unequal- then we will use most points per game in Round Robin play (ie 20 points in 12 games is 1.67 points per game: 20 divided by 12)  Higher percentage is home team

3- If 1 or 2 doesn’t decide, then it will be a coin toss. 

If the two coaches are NOT available then the coin toss will be done by the hosting centre.  The center whose name is alphabetically first will be heads, the other tails.
