[DATEBOOK] The W-League will kick off the 2010 season on May 14 with 27 teams playing in three geographic conferences.

Five new teams will play in 2011. The Dayton Dutch Lions, LA Strikers and Victoria Highlanders will kick off their inaugural seasons on May 14. Also playing their first seasons will be the Fredericksburg Impact and Washington FC.

The Eastern Conference features two six-team divisions – Atlantic and Northeast – while the Central Conference is composed of seven teams and the Western Conference features eight teams.
