Your local Park Team will have a schedule that will play against teams of the same level from other clubs in the state. Most team's local flight will include 8-12 team matches with half being home and half away at the opponent's facility. At the end of the season, the top 1 or 2 teams from each flight, is invited to compete in the District Championships (against the top teams of a neighboring couple of states). Winners of that, are invited to compete in the Sectional Championship to determine who is the best team at their level to represent New England in the National Championships.
