Coaches get 2 freedom games, except the section with 10 teams. If you have less then 8 section games, AIA will be computerized scheduling each team up to 8. I was told that those are same section only games, so not like last time when they went 1 up or 1 down. I also was told that except for a few teams, the freedom games will be loaded on the front side of schedule. Weeks 1 and 2.
So Division 1 team gets 4 to 5 freedom games then?
No, they might get 4 to 5 NON-SECTION games but 2-3 of those games would be scheduled by AIA. Our section (at least currently) has 5 teams in it. That means we only have 4 section games this year. The other 6 games will be non-section games but my understanding (and I don't have much to do with the scheduling) is that 4 of those games will be scheduled for us by AIA and we'll get to try and schedule the other 2 (Freedom games) ourselves.
