The SCAHL post season consists of a Conference Tournament to determine the Conference Champions, and League Play-offs to establish the SCAHL League Champion, who then advances to the Hockey Alberta AA Championships.

Bantam - 6 team North and South tournaments. February 27-March 1
Midget - 6 team North and South tournaments. March 5-8.
The North and South Tournament winners shall advance to the League Championship Play Offs.
League Championship Playoffs
Pee Wee and Midget will be on March 12-15, Bantam March 5-8, and shall be a Best of Three series, with the team with the highest winning percentage in the regular season being the home team. The same tie breaker system as described for the final regular season standings rankings above will be utilized in the event teams are tied for home ice. Game 1 shall be at the higher seed, game 2 at the lower seed, with game 3 if required at the higher seed. Regular season rules apply, excepting that each game will be played until a winner is determined.
Overtime Rules: Overtime is sudden death - the first team to score wins. If game ends in tie, a 5-minute break will be given, and the game will resume with 10 minutes on the game clock.
If still tied after the initial 10-minute overtime period, the ice will be flooded and the second overtime period of 20 minutes will then commence.
This process will continue until a winner is decided.
No play-off game shall have a start time later than 8:30 p.m.
Governors will establish a draft schedule for the play-off games, and provide this to team managers in order for them to obtain icetimes. The governor will be responsible for the review and approval of the play-off schedule, and will notify the league statistician of the schedule for posting to the SCAHL website.
