The playoffs consisted of a 6-team bracket with the top two teams directly in the semifinals. There was a two-loss provision included, such that a team was not eliminated until they had two losses in the tournament. Because the team of Clayton Orvik and Senja Lopak entered the playoffs undefeated, they were not eliminated when they lost to Courtney and Tyler George in the semifinals and instead got to challenge the winner of the first round of the championship, Brady and Cristin Clark, for the title.[5]
