A KO time of 2:00 pm will be used as the default time for the Quarter-Finals, but is subject to change depending on the needed travel arrangements for each team. The KO time for the Semi-Finals will be determined at the time that the Sr. Boys Provincial Schedule is set for that day.
The Wild Card selection will be made by a Jr. Boys Provincial Championship Committee and be based upon the size and quality of teams in all zones over the course of the season.
