The Interscholastic League voted and awarded the State Champion or had playoffs if teams were tied in the standings in the early years. In 1922 the league formally adopted overtime periods and playoffs if teams were tied for the championship. Prior to the 1932-33 formation of the current RIIL schools played in (2) divisions (Interscholastic League and Interscholastic Conference) with both champions meeting for schoolboy honors (1927-28 to 1931-32). Teams were comprised of 7 players (Left Wing, Center, Rover, Right Wing, Cover Point, Point and Goal) until the 1925-26 season. Schools played outdoors exclusively (including Blackstone Pond, East Side Skating Rink, Mashapaug Pond, No Bottom Pond, Roger Williams Park, Scott's Pond, Slater Park, Hammond Pond, Railroad Pond, Washee Pond and York Pond) until the RI Auditorium opened.
