[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 defending champion Buffalo Flash, which has moved to Women's Professional Soccer, and regular-season champion Hudson Valley are two of seven teams that have not returned. The Hampton Roads Piranhas have become the Virginia Beach Piranhas.

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.

Clubs will play 10- to 14-game schedules in 2011. The final weekend of the regular season is set for the weekend of July 15-17. The full 2011 W-League postseason format will be announced at a later date.
